Common White Collar Crimes
Crimes are usually labeled “white collar crimes” if they involve what federal investigators believe are deliberate tactics to deceive another party for the sake of unfair or unlawful gain.
Many of our clients who are arrested for white-collar crimes are upstanding professionals who have no criminal history and are dealing with the criminal justice system for the first time. Often, these individuals are simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Mr. Whalen’s Frisco criminal law practice brings years of criminal defense experience to each white collar crime offense his clients are up against, including the following:
- Business fraud
- Securities fraud
- Internet and mail fraud
- Tax fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Health care fraud
- Government contract fraud
- Money laundering
- Conspiracy to commit any white collar crime
You may even see an increase in federal arrests in some white collar crimes as the media reports highs and lows in certain markets. For example, when the housing market peaked before and after the last economic decline, there appeared to be more arrests of homeowners, realtors and brokers for crimes such as fraudulently obtaining mortgages or debt relief. After natural disasters, you may hear more about alleged victims being arrested for insurance fraud. Call Whalen Law Office now if you feel you are a victim of circumstance in such a case.
