White Collar Crimes.

Evan Duke PC

White collar crimes are crimes of deceit and fraud, not violence. Very often the accused is a businessman and may not feel like a criminal, but prison time (and loss of freedom) is as real for him as for any other violent offender.

The offenses such as bank fraud, insurance fraud, embezzlement, tax evasion, environmental crimes, computer and Internet fraud, bribery of public officials and commercial bribery are well known as white collar crimes. The investigations may start with a grand jury subpoena to testify, produce business records or a search warrant to seize said records. Investigation may start with a “friendly” visit by State or Federal investigator to “just ask you a few questions."

In general, white collar crimes are investigated by the County Prosecutor's Office or the state Attorney General's office, and Federal agencies such as the Secret Service, Treasury, FBI, Postal Authorities, Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), or IRS.

It is wise to have an attorney’s representation even if you have been subpoenaed as a witness before a grand jury or have a meeting with a law enforcement officials.
