White Collar Crime
Today, white collar crime generally encompasses a variety of nonviolent crimes usually committed in commercial situations for financial gain. Many white-collar crimes are especially difficult to prosecute because the perpetrators use sophisticated means to conceal their activities through a series of complex transactions. Both state and federal legislation enumerate the activities that constitute white-collar criminal offenses. Defense attorneys come from private firms and aid their clients through the government investigation, compliance issues, and possible trial.
