White Collar Crime
Detroit White Collar Crime Attorney
Do not wait until you are arrested to talk to a lawyer if you suspect that you are under scrutiny or suspicion over an alleged white collar crime.
Perhaps you have been told that the accounts that you were responsible for are short thousands of dollars, and that an audit will be initiated. You may read the handwriting on the wall, realizing that you could be accused of taking money from those accounts for your own use. This is the best time to contact an attorney — when the alleged white collar crime is still at the rumor stage.
Schwartz Law Firm is a well-established and respected white collar criminal defense law firm in the Detroit area. Our lawyers welcome your inquiry if you are under suspicion, have been accused, are under investigation or have been charged with any offense such as the following:
- ID theft
- Credit card fraud
- Check fraud
- Tax fraud
- Immigration-related crimes
From experience, we know that “guilt” in white collar crime scenarios often falls in a gray area zone. Often, white collar crime allegations come about from situations like these:
- Ex-wives, begrudging business partners or rivals of some kind make false or exaggerated allegations, which lead to investigations and charges.
- The person accused of a crime “borrowed” money from an account that he or she was responsible for, with full intention of repaying it as soon as possible. Allegations and charges developed before the money had been repaid.
- A treasurer was engaged in some type of “rob Peter to pay Paul” scheme, or creative bookkeeping that got out of hand.
Were you in a position of trust over some funds that went missing? Did another leader in your company or nonprofit organization have bones to pick with you, resulting in accusations and allegations against you?
However, your white collar criminal charges or allegations came about; remember that your constitutional rights apply just as they do with any other crime. Unlawful search and seizure of your computer or of official records that were in your possession can be a key component of your defense.
