Experienced New York Criminal Defense Attorney
Decades of Experience Defending People Against White Collar Crimes
In response to the collapse of Enron and other business scandals, the federal government introduced the Sarbanes-Oxley Act to protect shareholders from fraudulent business practices. The government also increased the penalties for individuals accused of committing white collar crimes. Swift legal action is required to prevent an indictment or mitigate serious accusations involving white collar crimes.
If you believe prosecutors are investigating you in connection to a white collar crime, obtain experienced legal counsel. Federal and state prosecutors devote substantial resources investigating white collar allegations. Often, a strong case is developed well before criminal charges are made.
