Dallas White Collar Crime Defense Attorney
White-collar crimes refer to non-violent violations of the law, generally involving either money or financial gain. As these types of crimes are often associated with professionals or government employees that have access to other people’s assets or sensitive data, the term “white-collar crime” is used to distinguish these alleged offenders from blue-collar workers. Of course, white collar crimes may be committed by any individual or entity.
To many people, white-collar crimes are not grave offenses as they do not involve bodily harm to another party. However, the reality is that these offenses can cause serious harm to both the economy and to society in general, and so government authorities take white-collar crimes very seriously.
Often, white-collar offenses fall under the jurisdiction of the federal government. State authorities such as the District Attorney or Attorney General, however, are now authorized to prosecute these charges.
Dealing with federal white collar criminal accusations require a great deal of experience, skill, and expertise. If you or someone you love has been charged with a white-collar crime, contact David Finn, P.C. at (214) 871-1112 today to discuss your case.
