Lexington White Collar Crime Lawyer

The Lexington criminal defense lawyers of the Law Office of James R. Snell, Jr., LLC represent individuals facing allegations of fraud, embezzlement, or any other state or federal white collar crime. Offenses are classified as white collar crimes typically when they are non-violent and involve a professional or executive level defendant. Frequently those charged with white collar crimes have been very successful in their chosen careers and have no prior contact with the criminal justice system.

Typical Examples of White Collar Crimes

  • Bankruptcy fraud
  • Breach of trust
  • Computer hacking
  • Counterfeiting
  • Embezzlement
  • Environmental crimes
  • Forgery
  • Fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Postal crimes
  • Real estate violations
  • Securities law violations
  • Smuggling
  • Tax evasion
  • Certain weapons violations

Many times, white collar crimes are investigated by federal law enforcement agencies such as the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), or Postal Inspectors, either alone or in conjunction with local authorities and the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED). Frequently, by the time you learn you are under investigation for a white collar crime, law enforcement has already spent months obtaining evidence, employing forensic accountants, and preparing their case against you.

With today's political and economic climate, white collar offenses are often prosecuted just as vigorously as other major felonies or violent street crimes. If you have discovered that you or a loved one is under investigation for a white collar crime, you owe it to yourself to immediately obtain the services of an experienced criminal defense lawyer. It is imperative that you consult with a Lexington criminal defense attorney prior to agreeing to cooperate in any sort of deposition or proffer agreement or make any statements or admissions to law enforcement.
