When should you hire an attorney for a white-collar crime?

Recent data from the United States Justice Department suggests that white-collar crime is actually on the decline. White-collar crime includes federal procurement fraud, arson for profit, identity theft, telemarketing theft and much more. As of 2016, the rate of white-collar convictions had decreased by 16.7 percent compared to numbers in 2011. 

Dodging taxes can lead to serious consequences

It's a crime to try to avoid paying taxes, but many people try to get away with it. Tax evasion refers to individuals attempting not to pay taxes purposefully. People who make mistakes on their taxes shouldn't face charges for their errors, although they may face financial penalties or the risk of prison if they do not make good on the debt.

What's different between a misdemeanor and felony?

Misdemeanors and felonies are both charges that you don't want to have on your record. Both can affect your ability to obtain a job or to rent an apartment you love. Some may make it harder for you socially, whereas others could hold you back when you're looking to go to college.

Myths hurt your understanding of white collar crime law

As someone accused of a white collar crime, you might think you'll get away without penalties since you have the money and power to back your defense. The truth is that people in powerful positions and those who are wealthy do sometimes end up in prison or facing other consequences for white collar crimes. Fortunately, strong defenses can help prevent you from ending up behind bars.
