White-collar crimes are typically prosecuted by the federal government. Sometimes suspects receive lengthy prison sentences to deter others from committing similar crimes. Although white-collar crimes rarely involve violence, state and federal prosecutors treat suspects with zero tolerance.
Our experienced and sophisticated team at Bernfeld, DeMatteo & Bernfeld, LLP handles the toughest white-collar crime cases, ranging from healthcare fraud to tax crimes and mail fraud. The moment you believe you are under investigation for a white-collar offense, it’s essential to seek the advice of a criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
Types of White-Collar Crime
Some white-collar crimes seem to blur the line between what’s legal and what’s not. If you find yourself caught up in a plan of questionable legality, get legal assistance as soon as you can. Our firm has represented many clients throughout New York City on charges of many different types, including:
- Bribery. The offering of money, goods or something else of value in exchange for services or someone’s influence.
- Extortion. Unlike bribery, extortion does not involve gifts to obtain goods and services, but rather threats and force.
- Embezzlement. When you fraudulently misappropriate funds or property you were entrusted to look after, you’ve committed embezzlement.
- Fraud. The act of using deceit for personal or financial gain. There are many different types of fraud, including tax fraud, mail fraud and mortgage fraud.
For any of these charges, you’ll need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to help you navigate the legal process and secure your best outcome in the case. Experienced in federal crimes and sentencing, our team at Bernfeld, DeMatteo & Bernfeld, LLP has provided sound criminal defense guidance to clients in some of the most complex white-collar cases.
