Financial crimes: A range of crimes with potential prison time

"Financial crime" is a cover-all term for many kinds of financial crimes including fraud, identity theft and others. Every financial crime is a little different, and thus attorneys have to work diligently to protect their clients. Defenses that could work for one act may not work well for another.

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.

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.

Is gift-giving bribery?

You always liked your local government officials. You decided you wanted to try your hand at politics, too, so you applied for a position. When you arrived, you brought a donation for a charity the hiring manager loves while discussing how much you'd love the position.
