Defense Against White Collar Charges

Last updated on March 12, 2024

White collar offenses are typically nonviolent crimes involving money. They usually impact business owners, managers, financial professionals, government officials and others in positions of trust. Convictions or even accusations can destroy careers and lives.

If you are facing charges or the target of a state or federal investigation, seeking prompt legal representation from a lawyer experienced in white collar cases is crucial. You will find a strong defense of your rights and reputation at The Law Offices of Karen D. Gerber, PLLC, in Winston-Salem.

I understand the complexities of financial fraud accusations. My accreditation as a board-certified specialist in federal and state criminal law underscores my ability to defend you in a complicated legal situation.

Understanding White Collar Offenses

White collar crime charges are prosecuted at the state or federal level. Due to the high sums of money involved, they are typically felonies. These are challenging cases, often involving detailed financial transactions and sophisticated technology. There are many kinds of white collar crimes, but common offenses are:

  • Embezzlement
  • Tax evasion
  • Money laundering
  • Identity theft
  • Bribery
  • Credit card fraud
  • Insider trading
  • Insurance fraud

Defending against any of these charges requires an attorney who understands the case against you and can develop an effective defense strategy.

Seek Legal Guidance Promptly If Prosecutors Target You

It’s essential to take action immediately if you are under investigation for a white collar crime in North Carolina. If police contact you for an interview or you receive a federal target letter, it’s vital to hire a knowledgeable lawyer before talking to investigators.

I take a proactive approach. I will work to determine if you are the investigation’s primary target or considered a material witness. By getting involved before charges are filed, I can work to prevent charges or ensure that you are in the most favorable position if your case goes to trial.
