When it comes to white collar crimes, the allegations typically revolve around illegal acts involving financial gain. They don’t involve violence, but can include embezzlement, bribery, Medicare or healthcare fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud, telemarketing fraud, counterfeiting and insider trading. These offenses are typically pursued by the federal and state governments with much vigor. If convicted, they can lead to significant prison time and large fines.
Defending against these cases requires a criminal defense attorney who is knowledgeable and aggressive, and has experience handling these types of prosecutions. Often, these cases are investigated by multiple agencies, including the FBI and SEC. The defense attorney can challenge the evidence and investigative methods used by investigators, and if there are problems, they may be able to get the charges dismissed or reduced.
In some cases, a criminal defense attorney can argue that the alleged offender had no intent to commit the crime. These cases often involve complex financial transactions that the average person would not understand. This can make it difficult to establish the criminal intent required to convict the defendant.
If a person is accused of any type of fraud, he or she should seek legal counsel as soon as possible. A Miami criminal lawyer can defend against the charge and help to ensure that his or her client is not found guilty of a white collar crime.
The law office of Valery Nechay has been successfully defending people against state and federal white collar crimes for years. We will fight the allegations, go for the win at trial and find leverage to minimize the penalties and consequences in every case we take on.
Our clients don’t have the luxury of taking a quick and easy plea deal, which is why they hire us. Our clients come from all walks of life, and are in many ways well-regarded members of their community. Some have families to consider, professional careers and other responsibilities. Being arrested and convicted of these types of charges can be devastating for them. It can interfere with their ability to work in their profession, and it can also impact their accreditation and licensing.
We have a proven track record of achieving successful results for our clients. We have been able to secure reduced or dismissed charges, as well as getting them dropped before they ever went to trial. Our lawyers have been able to challenge the basis for the fraud charges on several different issues, such as demonstrating that the defendant did not have any intent, arguing that the defendant’s Fifth Amendment and “Miranda Rights” were violated during questioning by authorities, or challenging whether or not the crime even occurred at all.
Statistics show that parties represented by a criminal lawyer are much more likely to have their case resolved with a favorable outcome than those who represent themselves. If you are facing state or federal white collar crimes, contact a qualified criminal defense attorney immediately. We can discuss your options for defense and come up with a plan to move forward.
