The Woodlands White Collar Crimes Attorney
What Are White Collar Crimes in Texas?
In recent years, the mere mention of white-collar crime often invokes images of well-dressed, wealthy men who went out of their way to pillage pension funds and “rip off” investors, clients and/or the public. However, white-collar crimes can be committed – knowingly or not – by any employee with access to certain information. And while charges stemming from white-collar crimes are serious, it is easy to engage in such crimes without full knowledge of your actions or their repercussions.
If you have been accused of or currently under investigation for a white collar crime, our The Woodlands white collar crime lawyers at Morgan Bourque Attorney at Law can fight for you inside and outside the courtroom in order to help you avoid serious criminal penalties or get your entire case dismissed. With more than five decades of combined experience, we can investigate your allegations, gather evidence, and prepare an aggressive and effective defense for trial.
A basic definition of white-collar crime is that of a nonviolent crime committed by business and government professionals. These crimes have made headlines in recent years due to the fall of companies that were exploited by the greedy and unscrupulous actions of very few people.
Examples of white-collar criminal offenses include:
- Bank and mortgage fraud
- Money laundering
- Mail fraud
- Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Securities and stock fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Identity theft, including credit card fraud, and check forgery
- Violations of environmental regulations
- Embezzlement, pilferage
Authorities are cracking down on suspicious white-collar behavior and activities. In fact, in 2016, thousands of arrests were made related to white-collar crime in Texas. If you have been accused of any of the above descriptions or another white-collar crime, our legal team can craft a defense that demonstrates your innocence to a jury.
