According to California law, a white collar crime is a criminal act that takes place within a business or corporate setting. The majority of white collar crime offenders are people who are in high-profile positions, such as executives, directors, managers, and other business leaders. White collar crimes usually involve the theft of large sums of money. For this reason, among other factors, many white collar crime cases are prosecuted by the federal government.
Justice demands a fierce defense.

White Collar Crime | Punishment
If a person is convicted of a white collar crime, they face years in prison, and will be responsible for reimbursing the full amount of stolen funds. They also face enormous fines and fees. The length of any prison or jail sentence, and amount of the fines ordered, are usually directly related to the amount of money illegally obtained, the injury to any victim(s), and the prior criminal history of the defendant. And, generally, the more money an accused has to pay back the funds taken prior to preliminary hearing or trial, the less time they will serve in custody if convicted.
Representation Before Charges are Filed
White collar crimes typically involve lengthy investigations that can take up to two years or longer to complete. Once a person has been accused or is under investigation for a white collar crime, it is crucially important that they hire a criminal defense attorney who is experienced with white collar crime investigations and cases to protect the legal rights of the accused. With skilled legal representation and advocacy, it is also possible to mitigate negative consequences, and prevent more serious charges from being filed.
