I just learned that I am facing white collar charges. What’s the next step?
If you think you’re facing a white collar crime, and white collar crimes are generally those crimes that involve some type of fraud or theft or embezzlement of money. First, we’d need to determine is it in state or federal court?
If it is in federal court you definitely need to consult an attorney to, one, remain silent and not talk to the authorities because a good experienced criminal defense lawyer who knows the federal system can help you through that process a great deal.
On the state side if it’s a white collar crime things like always remain silent but then efforts can be made to arrange for bail and get you surrendered in a professional manor. Those are some tips that you should have in a white collar case but always make sure you consult with an attorney before you make any decisions or make any statements to law enforcement.
