Financial Crime Still Has Serious Consequences
White collar crime often refers to financial crime. Though these may seem less serious than more violent crimes, the penalties can be severe: fines and jail time, as well as a permanent record that could make finding future employment difficult. There is an alternative: A skilled lawyer may be able to help you by getting your charges reduced or even dismissed.
The Many Types Of White Collar Crime
As founding attorney of Josh Lee & Associates, I am committed to getting you the favorable outcome you deserve. I have dedicated my career to criminal defense, and at my firm, you will receive the benefit of that experience and my full attention. I have helped clients with white-collar crime issues like:
- Tax evasion. This can be an incredibly easy crime to commit without even realizing it. You are responsible for paying the full, correct amount in taxes. If you underpay, you may be investigated for tax evasion.
- Embezzlement. Taking money from a person or organization over which you have authority is embezzlement. You can receive not only jail time, but the duty of restitution if you are convicted of this offense.
- Money laundering. This is the act of taking illegally obtained money and mixing it with legally obtained money. It can sometimes go along with drug offenses.
- Fraud. Many types of white collar crimes are considered fraud, which means that you knowingly deceived someone out of money. This can include securities fraud.
Other types of white collar crime include extortion, computer crimes and conspiracy. Whether you are being investigated for a simple charge or a more complex, multi-layered one, I am able to take on your case and give it my full attention and experience.
