Preparing an Aggressive Defense
White collar crimes will be investigated by examining business records, accounting entries and computer files. The prosecution will be looking to tie you to the fraud or theft that occurred. The first line of defense is to question how the government obtained the information. If it was obtained improperly, we work to establish its inadmissibility as evidence that can be used against you.
These cases can involve lengthy investigations. You need an attorney who knows what to look for when preparing your defense. We use computer experts, financial consultants and forensic accountants to help us determine the strength of the prosecution's case. We work together with these professionals to prepare a strong defense to help you obtain the best results possible.
