WHITE COLLAR CRIMES

Criminal Defense

A white-collar crime, such as embezzlement or official misconduct, typically refers to a type of criminal offense committed by professionals using deception, as opposed to crimes that involve violence or force. In actuality, our New York clients can include the average worker to owners of publicly traded companies. In New York, allegations of a white-collar crime are a serious matter and can carry severe penalties, including loss of employment and pension. They are often prosecuted in the three New York Federal Courts although New York State Courts have seen a steady increase in white collar crimes cases over recent years.

Unlike street crimes, there is usually no emergency that requires law enforcement to immediately arrest the suspect. Thus, it is not uncommon for a white collar crime investigation to last years without an arrest. Your first indication that you are a suspect could be the receipt of a subpoena or a call from law enforcement asking you to submit to questioning. It is extremely important to contact an attorney as soon as you think you may be a suspect. Your best defense may very well depend on who you call for help. If you are the subject of internal investigations, private investigations, subpoenas for records and/or testimony or you receive contact from law enforcement officials requesting that you make a statement, contact Ali & Bains immeidately.
