White Collar crime is a generic terms for a list of potential criminal charges that usually arise in the context of business transactions and generally involve allegations of embezzlement or misappropriation of business funds. However, these types of allegations can also surface when a person is caring for a disabled or otherwise dependent person. Police will investigate complaints of suspicious monetary transactions. However, police are not accountants and most times do not really understand the spreadsheet they are looking at while making decisions about arresting you. It is important to hire an attorney that has experience in these matters because they tend to be complex and involve a lot of moving parts. Here at Jarvis, Bridge, Halttunen, & Weyer, we have longstanding relationships with forensic accountants who will go through the financial transactions to provide a complete, accurate, and detailed understanding of what actually happened in your case. If necessary, we can present that evidence to a jury to demonstrate that the police were just wrong.
The crimes that are generally used when prosecuting White Collar cases are:
- Identity Theft
- Computer Crime
- Criminal Mistreatment
- Falsifying Business Records
Call us today if you have been accused of these types of crimes.
