White Collar crimes are those involving “paper.” By paper, the law enforcement types are referring to cases involving things such as real estate fraud, Ponzi schemes, bank fraud, racketeering, securities fraud (state and federal), tax fraud, large scale counterfeiting operations, conspiracy, political corruption, and the list goes on.

White collar cases are state or federal in nature, and generally involve losses exceeding one million dollars. Defending these cases again requires an Orange County criminal defense attorney who has a very good working knowledge of fourth amendment issues, wiretaps and paper trails. White collar cases are often broken open through the use of an inside informant, someone in the organization who “rolls” on others in exchange for leniency. White collar offenses are subject to sentence enhancements which, in addition to the basic penalties, can amount to sentences in the dozens of years!
