Jacksonville White Collar Crime Attorney

White Collar Crime

The term “white collar crime” refers to those crimes which are financially motivated, non-violent crimes typically committed by business or government officials in the course of their occupation. Generally included are crimes such as fraud, bribery, embezzlement, cybercrime, identity theft, and forgery to name a few. The reason these crimes are often committed by businessmen and government officials is that they are typically achieved based on an individual’s status within a company or corporation, or based on their knowledge of the financial systems available to them.

Unravel the Evidence

These crimes are often sophisticated as criminal activity is typically woven together with legitimate activity in order to avoid detection by law enforcement officials. As a result, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney that can help unravel the prosecution’s evidence and assist both prosecutors and jurors in understanding the evidence and why it is not sufficient for a criminal conviction.

Expert Witnesses

Cases under the “white collar crime” moniker often require expert witnesses to assist in understanding the significance of a particular course of action taken by someone accused of such a crime. These experts can better illustrate and give meaning to the purpose and thought behind a particular course of action and the circumstances under which it was performed. Like technology itself, the concept of “white collar crime” is constantly evolving, as are the ways that certain crimes are defined or detected. As a result, experts can be critical in any determination as to whether certain conduct is in fact criminal.

Experience in Complex Cases

Because of the complexity often involved in these types of cases, it is important to consult a criminal defense lawyer who has experience in retaining and communicating with experts and who understands that these cases require a vigorous, often fact-intensive defense. Criminal accusations under the “white collar crime” concept can involve numerous victims, which means prosecutors will feel pressured to pursue all avenues available to secure a conviction. If you, a friend, or loved one has been accused of a financial or computer crime, contact the Law Office of John M. Phillips as soon as possible for a free consultation to discuss the case.
