A good defense makes a difference in white collar crime cases

White collar crime is usually a nonviolent form of crime. It tends to involve the finances of major corporations or taxes, for example. Selling spots at universities to the Hollywood elite, for instance, is just one example that has been seen in America in the last year.

Did you know that, in 2019, white collar prosecutions fell to their lowest level since researchers began to track the cases in 1998? Even in cases where people are prosecuted, they tend to be lower-level cons or small financial schemes, not the major white collar crimes that you see reported in the news.

In 2018, only 37 people were convicted over white collar crimes (out of those who work for larger firms with 50 or more employees). Why are some of the larger corporations and CEOs going without punishment? It all comes down to a good criminal defense.

Getting cases dropped before going to court is a possibility

In many cases, your attorney may be able to work out a solution to a white collar crime charge or be able to get you removed as a suspect. Building a defense that shows the prosecution that there isn't enough evidence to convict may work to prevent them from pursing a charge in the first place.

For instance, showing that you didn't have access to company accounts or that you were not present during meetings where people talked about committing an illegal act could help you get any case against you dropped. Your attorney will work closely with you to help you take charges off the table or to defend you carefully if you will face trial.
