Suffolk County White Collar Crimes

Lawyers Who Know How to Confront White Collar Criminal Charges

White collar crimes are those committed by an organization or individual in a business in order to see a financial gain. These crimes are non-violent. However, due to recent scandals in the financial and business world, lawmakers in New York and nationwide have enacted new laws and dedicated more resources to prosecuting white-collar crimes.

What this means is that the days of getting a mere "slap on the wrist" or doing "easy time" for white collar crimes are a thing of the past.

White-collar crime defendants are often executives, business owners, professionals or employees who are facing the criminal justice system for the first time in their lives. Usually, they are in the position to access company funds and the allegations involve thousands of dollars, sometimes hundreds of thousands.
