White Collar Crimes Examples in Washington

Though white-collar crimes are generally not violent in nature, they are still aggressively pursued and prosecuted through state and federal courts. This is especially so in cases that involve many victims, large financial losses, or cross state lines. These crimes are often investigated for months or even years by such federal agencies as the FBI and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

White-collar crimes include such offenses as:

  • Medicare or Medicaid fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Tax evasion
  • Credit card fraud
  • Bank or wire fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Investment scams
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Corporate fraud
  • Internet fraud

If you believe you are being investigated or if you are facing state or federal charges involving white-collar crimes, it is strongly advised that you consult with a Tacoma white-collar crimes defense attorney at Hester Law Group. You should not answer questions or speak to law enforcement or investigators concerning such crimes without legal protection. The sooner you contact us, the better chance we have at employing legal protections and tactics that could lead to no charges being filed, charges being dropped, or other benefits.

White-Collar Crimes & Consequences

These are often extremely complex crimes involving huge quantities of documentation and, if filed on the federal level, require an attorney who is well-versed in federal law, federal court procedure, and federal rules of evidence. You will need an attorney who has experience standing up to aggressive prosecutors in federal court as well. Restitution to victims may also be included in penalties.

Examples of penalties involved with white-collar crimes include:

  • Forgery as a Class C felony punishable by up to 5 years of incarceration and fines of up to $10,000
  • Embezzlement of more than $5,000 punishable by up to 10 years in prison and fines of up to $20,000

Our firm can take on your case at the investigative stage which often leads to the greatest effect. We can assess your situation in order to give you an honest appraisal of where you stand and the strategies that can be used in your defense. Throughout your case, we can keep you fully apprised so that you can make informed decisions as we work to exhaustively investigate and research your situation, leaving no stone unturned.
