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.

Minimizing the Effect of Child Porn Charges

In the age of technology, it is easier than ever to find the information we want or need. Although this can be beneficial for work and play, it can also be dangerous. With a little bit of searching, almost anyone can find child pornography. Just clicking on an inappropriate picture traces it to your computer, and there are also a number of viruses which automatically download porn to your computer.

The same ease that allows people to find pornography is the same lead authorities have when they are looking for criminals. Some people are slapped with charges after the police search their computer, while other people are lured in by officers pretending to be young children. Regardless of the bait you followed, if you are facing charges for possession of child pornography, it is important to find a lawyer who can give you the aggressive defense you need.

Damage Control in Child Pornography Cases

When I work with clients who are facing charges for child pornography, damage control is one of my first obligations. I get clients into counseling programs to show the court you are taking affirmative steps to turn your life around. If your computer was exposed to spam or viruses, I may be able to show you did not know about the porn or did not download it intentionally. I work hard to mitigate the charges and the impact it will have on your life.
