White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer in Orange County
Criminal Attorney Serving Laguna Hills & Irvine
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!
