Traditionally, white collar crime was defined as a nonviolent theft offense, involving fraud in commercial matters and requiring a level of professional sophistication to commit. Today the definition has been expanded to encompass a wide range of nonviolent economic crimes and even ongoing criminal conspiracies.

The best time to seek legal counsel for a white collar crime is as soon as you learn of an investigation. When our firm represents you during the early stages of an investigation, there is a much better chance that we can prevent charges from being brought, either by demonstrating that no crime has been committed or by offering a reasonable explanation for an inadvertent violation along with a settlement plan. In no case should you act without legal counsel; often, state and federal investigators cannot make a case for an underlying crime, but the rash actions of a target of the investigation provide grounds for charging a cover-up. So, before you do anything that could make your situation worse, get the reliable legal advice you need from Faught and Faught.
