Lawyer For White Collar Crimes Based In West Palm Beach
Deception. Fraud. Concealment. Greed. These are just some of the terms associated with white collar criminal activity. White collar crime encompasses a broad range of financially motivated crimes committed in a business setting. The most high-profile examples of white-collar crime include Enron’s accounting scandal, Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme, and the predatory lending practices which led to the financial crisis of 2008.
In the aftermath of these high profile events, there has been an increase in both the state and federal levels towards investigating and prosecuting white collar crimes. Even though these crimes are non-violent in nature, they carry severe consequences. Depending on the alleged offense, you could be facing imprisonment, forfeiture of your assets, fines, and restitution to the alleged victim/s.
