“White-collar crimes” refer to nonviolent offenses that are perpetrated for financial gain. Nearly all of these types of crimes involve fraud and will often be prosecuted in federal court. Penalties can include substantial fines, forfeiture of stolen assets, and many years of imprisonment.

We understand how federal prosecutors approach these cases and will do everything possible to protect your rights and secure a favorable outcome.
Responding to a Government Investigation
Many white-collar crimes are concealed through complex transactions and intricate schemes. The federal government devotes numerous resources to investigating and uncovering these plots.
You should immediately seek qualified legal representation if you learn that you are the subject of an official government investigation, even if you are confident that you did not do anything wrong. Government investigators may ask for your voluntary cooperation, which might include answering questions or providing access to personal or work computer devices.
If investigators come to your office or home and explain that you are under investigation for a white-collar crime, understand that you are most likely not currently under arrest. You can exercise your right to remain silent and refuse to let them search your property or access your personal devices.
You should never speak to a law enforcement officer or government investigator without your attorney present. It is also almost never advisable to give access to your devices if investigators do not have a warrant.
Our team at Peek & Toland can help you build a proactive defense if you are under investigation and believe an arrest may be imminent. We can evaluate what has transpired thus far, the evidence the prosecution may have, and all currently available legal remedies.
