White-Collar Crime Attorneys in Fort Worth
Types of White Collar Crimes in Texas
A vast practice area, white-collar crime includes a variety of non-violent
charges. The chief goal of white-collar criminals is nearly always personal
financial gain. While perpetrators are often office managers and executives,
many others can be involved in this type of criminal activity.
The following are a few common types of white-collar allegations:
- Credit card fraud
- Insider trading
- Tax evasion
- Securities fraud
What is the Criminal Investigation Process for White Collar Crimes?
White-collar allegations are typically pursued by the federal justice system.
The agencies that investigate these allegations often are well-funded
and thus very aggressive throughout the entirety of the investigative
process. At one time, few crimes were investigated on a federal level,
but recent expansions in the scope of federal law have resulted in increased
federal handling of cases that were once taken care of at the state level.
If there is one silver lining for alleged white-collar offenders, it is
that they are often well aware of federal investigations before they even
begin. Thus, it is possible to secure counsel and develop a solid legal
strategy early on in the investigative process. The right lawyer may be
able to get ahead of the investigation, interviewing witnesses early or
even opening lines of communication with the prosecution.
