White Collar Crime Defense

The lines between legal and illegal actions in white collar crime can be very thin and easily crossed. Many of these charges may be based on technical regulations; you may have committed a crime without even knowing it. Activities involving accounting filings, use of the mails, wire transfers, downturns with investment instruments, may be characterized as criminal. If you are charged with a white collar crime, it may have a lasting impact on your career, resulting in fines, restitution, jail time and a permanent record, accessible by future employers.

We represent clients with many white collar crime cases, including fraud and embezzlement, including:

  • Bank fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Investment fraud
  • Bribery
  • Conspiracy
  • Cybercrimes
  • Extortion
  • Forgery
  • Identity theft
  • Mail fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Theft
Environmental Crimes

In addition to handling the defense of white collar crimes, we also represent the interests of individuals and businesses that have been accused of environmental crimes. To be considered an environmental crime, there must be an alleged violation of an environmental statute or regulation. Crimes involving the environment can include violations of federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations, California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA) regulations, pollutant emission standards, improper disposal of waste or byproduct matter, or trade/killing of endangered species.

California Environmental Protection Agency (Cal/EPA)

California has some of the strictest state standards for the environment of any state, often exceeding the federal standards, as with the emission standards for motor vehicles. The federal Clean Water Act was based in part on the California Porter-Cologne Water Quality Control Act. This large body of statutes and regulations makes it easy to inadvertently violate the law in California.
