White-collar crimes often present serious penalties for anyone who is convicted on federal charges. Louisiana residents may know that white-collar charges, such as fraud, bank fraud, mail fraud, immigration fraud and embezzlement, typically involve money obtained through acts of deception. These cases are often investigated by federal agents to determine how someone made off with money that was not theirs.
Mere allegations can severely damage a person’s reputation, which is why it is important to take these charges seriously. Our law firm has been providing legal advice for years to Louisiana residents facing such allegations. In a fraud case we look first at where the charges came from. White-collar criminal charges often result from errors in documentation and not from actual criminal conduct. Our attorneys dig into financial accounts to gather all of the requisite information. Once we have accumulated evidence, we can build a defense that not only addresses a prosecution’s arguments, but perhaps also discredit evidence. If, however, prosecutors have real evidence, we can negotiate deals for lesser penalties.
Our goal is to provide the best possible criminal defense and the best possible outcome for the defendant. With our years of experience in handling white-collar crimes in both state and federal courts, we know what strategies prosecutors use and what judges are looking for in allowing evidence against defendants. Our knowledge and diligence in handling such cases have helped many individuals avoid conviction or face only minimal charges.
