White Collar Crime Investigation
Hiring an attorney for a white collar crime is very important. If you are actively being investigated for a white collar crime, it is going to look much different than if you were charged with a drug crime or pulled over for a traffic ticket. In both of those instances, you would be dealing with your city’s police officials. When you are potentially facing a white collar crime charge you will most likely be dealing with different arms of government like the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), or even the FBI.
