Tucson White Collar Crime Attorney
White collar crimes carry more than just prison sentences. People who are convicted of white collar crimes also face conviction in the court of public opinion. Most people lose their jobs and even the ability to continue to work in their fields as the result of such a conviction. To defeat a charge for a white collar crime, you need a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney with extensive experience in white collar crime. For more than 20 years, I have represented defendants accused of white collar crimes in both federal and state courts. The cases have ranged from sophisticated Ponzi schemes, to bank fraud, mail fraud, environmental violation cover-ups, and fraudulent schemes and artifices.
Fraud Lawyer Serving Nogales
As a Tucson, Arizona, white collar crime lawyer, I represent clients who face charges of all types, including:
- Embezzlement: Misappropriating company funds or property not only carries heavy criminal penalties, it also can prevent you from working in your field, particularly if you work in a bank, as a highly placed executive, or are a CPA or other financial manager.
- Credit card fraud: Credit card fraud is much more serious than most people believe and can lead to felony charges with surprisingly lengthy sentences. Particularly since persons charged with this crime often have no prior criminal record, I find it helpful to sometimes hire a psychologist who can help to humanize my client to the judge and help the judge understand the pressures and unique circumstances that led a law-abiding individual to commit an uncharacteristic crime.
- Medicare or Medicaid fraud: If you are a health care professional and are convicted of falsely or improperly billing Medicare or Medicaid, you may lose your medical license and your ability to find work in the medical field in the future.
- Identity theft: Identity theft is a serious and very-frequently prosecuted crime in this district that requires very careful examination of a heavy volume of documentary evidence. Sometimes, retaining expert witnesses such as handwriting experts can be quite helpful.
I take aggressive steps to defend my clients’ freedom when they face charges related to white collar crimes.
