Defense for White Collar Crime Charges in Hudson Valley

Hudson Valley white collar crime lawyer

"White collar crime" is a phrase coined to describe financially motivated criminal offenses like fraud or embezzlement. The "white collar" in white collar crime refers to high social status, in contrast to the "blue collar" middle class worker. White collar crimes are commonly classified as federal offenses and investigated by federal agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).

If you have been implicated for involvement in a white collar crime, you need tough defense. Contact Michael R. Varble & Associates, P.C. today to discuss your case.

Common White Collar Crimes

The FBI identifies ten major types of white collar crimes in the United States and has implemented task forces to eradicate them.

  • Money Laundering
  • Bankruptcy Fraud
  • Corporate/Business Fraud
  • Healthcare Fraud
  • Hedge Fund Fraud
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Mass Marketing Fraud
  • Mortgage Fraud
  • Intellectual Property Crimes
  • Securities/Investment Fraud

Indictment for White Collar Crimes

In serious or complex cases, like many white collar crimes are, the defendant can be indicted by a grand jury. The other option would be for the prosecutor (either a state prosecutor or U.S. Attorney for federal cases) to file charges directly with the court. White collar crime indictments often include many separate counts. Example: 4 counts of fraud, 10 counts of intellectual property theft, and 5 counts of money laundering.
