White Collar Crimes

San Francisco White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer

The FBI, Secret Service, United States Postal Inspector, U.S. Customs and other law enforcement agencies will meticulously investigate an individual for months or even years prior to pursuing white collar crime charges. As a result, the evidence they gather can often be substantial and incriminating.

Not surprisingly, the conviction rate for white collar crime is extremely high. However, an experienced and knowledgeable white collar crime defense lawyer may be able to keep charges from being filed, get charges dismissed, help reduce the charges through negotiations with prosecutors, or vigorously fight the charges in court.
