Murfreesboro Criminal Defense Attorney Provides Aggressive Legal Representation Against White Collar Crimes

Trusted advocacy in state and federal court

Criminal investigations into suspicion of white collar crimes can intimidating and intrusive. Investigators may have infiltrated a person’s life for much longer than a defendant realizes. Often by the time charges are brought, a long and expensive investigation has been underway. This starts many defendants off very far behind federal prosecutors. At the Law Office of David L Scott, our experienced Murfreesboro criminal defense attorney has more than 20 years of legal experience passionately defending clients in Rutherford County and surrounding areas who have unwittingly been caught up in federal white collar crime investigations.

Understand the serious charges against you

The term “white collar crime” does not have a specific legal definition. However, it is a common term used to describe crimes that are committed by professionals and that are traditionally non-violent in nature. They often involve financial crimes and may consist of:

          Fraud – Many white-collar crimes all under the umbrella of fraud charges. These may include insurance fraud, tax fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud or securities fraud.

          Money laundering – White collar crimes may involve crimes such as money laundering that are used to cover up the origin of illegally-gained funds and property.

          Embezzlement – Stealing property or money that a person in a business was entrusted with may result in embezzlement charges.

          Identity theft – If a person steals another person’s personal private information, identity theft charges may follow. 

          Tax crimes – Tax crimes such as evasion or failing to file or pay may result in federal prosecution.

          Obstruction – White collar crimes may also consist of obstruction of justice crimes, such as making false statements, perjury or bribery.

White collar crimes are serious crimes that can result in harsh consequences, such as prison time, forfeitures of property, restitution, and fines. Additionally, conviction of a white-collar crime can result in the loss of a professional license. Just because a crime may not have been violent in nature does not mean that federal prosecutors will go easy on you.

Protect your rights

Federal investigations into white collar crimes can bring about public attention and ridicule. The legal process can be very complicated, especially if state and federal authorities are involved. If you believe that you are being investigated for a white-collar crime, it is pivotal to seek competent legal representation.
