A conviction can ruin your personal and professional reputation, so it is important to seek representation from an attorney with the right experience. At Hart Jarvis Murray Chang PLLC, our white collar crime lawyers in Seattle fight for justice and represent our clients with legal skill that draws upon decades of combined experience.
What Constitutes a White Collar Crime?
When the federal government has jurisdiction, the investigation and prosecution of white collar crimes is performed by the United States Attorney’s Office. These offenses generally occur in financial, business, or commercial settings. A wide variety of criminal activities are classified as white collar crimes.
Our attorneys represent people charged with:
- Identity theft
- Money laundering
- Bank fraud
- Tax evasion
- Mail and wire fraud
While white collar crimes are nonviolent, they are serious, and being convicted can carry severe penalties. The reach of the federal government is sweeping, but the burden of proof always rests with the prosecution. They must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant committed the offense. You deserve experienced attorneys with the same level of skill and experience on your side.
