Whether an accountant is charged with embezzling money or someone is facing allegations related to computer fraud, there are a number of different white collar offenses that people are charged with across various industries. These allegations can be extremely disruptive when it comes to one’s mental health, finances and career, and our law office knows all too well how many lives have been turned upside down as a result of white collar crime allegations. Unfortunately, some people have found themselves in this position as a result of lies and false claims.
There are many different reasons why people may be falsely accused of a white collar offense. In some instances, false accusations may be an attempt to assassinate someone’s character or exact revenge. In other cases, someone may have simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and the false charges may be a result of confusion and misunderstanding. Either way, it can be very hard for someone to defend themselves against these claims, especially since there is such a harsh stigma that surrounds these cases.
If you are facing white collar crime charges and you are innocent, you may be devastated and completely unsure of how to handle the situation. We are very aware of the pressure that many people feel under these circumstances, whether they are a business owner or CEO, or someone who has only been working in a particular field for a matter of months. Regardless of whether the white collar offense allegations are true or not, the outcome of the case could significantly impact your life in many ways.
