The Impact of White Collar Crime Accusations on Your Life

Most people spend their whole life developing a talent or business practice. Unfortunately, when people invest so much time, energy and money in something, it can be frustrating if it doesn’t work. Some businesses accept the fall, while others will do whatever it takes to stay afloat.

If you or your business is under investigation for white collar crimes – such as embezzlement, fraud or counterfeiting – it is important to work with a lawyer who can protect your rights throughout the process. Actions do not happen in a vacuum, and accusations of white collar crimes could impact your job, your professional reputation and the rest of your life.

Building a Strong Defense

When I represent clients in white collar crime cases, I work with experts to find the true root of the problem. Using a forensic accountant, we are able to take apart the finances and correctly identify a business’s cash flow. Some businesses try to set their employees up to take the fall for poor financial management. I do not think this is acceptable, and I will work closely with my clients to protect their rights. I defend clients who are facing charges for:

  • Embezzlement
  • Money missing from a deposit box
  • In-house counterfeiting
  • Fraud

Do not let your livelihood crash because of accusations of white collar crime. Contact me online or call 256-270-2013 to schedule your free initial consultation.

Building a Strong Defense in Computer Cases

Almost everyone relies on computers for personal and business uses. With the ease of the Internet, we are able to easily download games and programs. With privacy settings, many people are able to share one computer. Plus, many people have found effective online file-sharing programs. Although all these features and programs can be advantageous, they can also lead to computer related crimes.

Whether you are facing charges for child pornography, counterfeit business or money fraud, it is important to hire a lawyer who will give you the strong defense you need.

Finding the Real Criminal in Computer Related Crimes

In families or businesses where multiple people have access to one computer, one of the earliest and most important parts of the investigation is determining whether my clients are the ones responsible for the information on the computer. I work closely with my clients and computer forensics to determine:

  • How did illegal information get on the computer?
  • Was the information put their knowingly, or was it caused by a virus?
  • Did multiple people have access to the computer?

I defend clients who are facing charges for child pornography, counterfeit business, identification theft and other computer related crimes. Regardless of the charges you are facing, it is important to work with an experienced attorney as soon as you are arrested or learn you are under investigation.
