White Collar Crimes

We have experience protecting the rights of individuals facing white collar criminal charges in Virginia’s state courts and in federal courts throughout the United States. White collar cases can involve allegations of large conspiracies comprised of numerous individuals and corporations. Substantial financial losses caused by embezzlement, bid rigging, tax evasion, or other types of alleged fraud may be an issue. Our lawyers have the knowledge and ability to analyze the unique factors of your case in order to prepare an effective defense.

The media can play a substantial role in white collar criminal cases. Our lawyers are experienced in dealing with the media. As part of your defense, we will help you devise a strategy to address the publicity that may surround your case. It is important that potential judges, prosecutors, and jurors not be negatively influenced by the media’s reporting. In addition, more favorable or limited publicity will better allow you to return to a normal life once your case is over.
