Vigorous Defense For Floridians Suspected Of White Collar Crimes
For a variety of reasons, Florida has a high rate of white collar crimes. Criminal charges of these types often begin with evidence of financial irregularities involving an organization such as a business, a nonprofit organization or a government agency. Suspicions and possible whistleblowing can then lead to lengthy investigations. If you are a target in such an investigation, your legal situation is very serious and you should not delay contacting an attorney.
At Michael A. Gottlieb, P.A., in Fort Lauderdale, you will find lawyers with extensive experience representing clients under investigation for federal and state-level white collar crimes. We are well-equipped to represent you aggressively in a white collar crime case.
No Matter What State Or Federal Financial Offenses You Are Accused Of, We Can Help
White collar crime investigations often take months and even years to reach the point of arrests, indictments and convictions. Someone who is under investigation should not take this to mean that they “have time to think about what to do.” Quite the opposite. White collar crimes such as the following can result in severe penalties and lengthy sentences:
- Fraud, forgery or identity theft (ID theft)
- Money laundering
- Violations of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act
- Ponzi schemes
- Medicare fraud
- Other scams involving abuse of government funds
Harsh penalties sometimes include lengthy prison sentences and severe financial repercussions. As soon as you know or believe that you are under scrutiny and may potentially be charged with a white collar crime, you should get qualified legal counsel.
