White Collar Crime
Many people consider computers to be a wonderful innovation for gathering information, managing your bank account and utility bills, and just having fun. However, because we now rely so much on computers for financial information and storing personal data, the rates of white collar crime have risen dramatically. Now, the FBI estimates that white collar crimes cost the U.S. at least $300 billion each year.
Because many types of fraud and schemes are now coming to light, people can be paranoid about succumbing to fraud. If you have been accused of participating in a white collar crime, you deserve a solid defense to help you with your case.

Types of White Collar Crimes
“White collar” crimes have that name because they are typically committed by high-level employees and government workers, who have access to important personal and financial information. The types of white collar crimes vary and can include:
- Money laundering
- Fraud – insurance, credit card, healthcare, hedge fund, etc.
- Insider trading
- Tax evasion
Because these crimes often involve the manipulation of facts and figures using a computer, there is typically no physical “paper trail.” Thus, they can be very hard to detect.
