Why White Collar Crime Cases are Different

July 2018

We handle a multitude of different types of criminal cases – from DUI and traffic cases to felony assault and drug cases to white collar crime cases. Each of these cases are treated differently from a number of reasons, including:

  • The seriousness of the crime and the consequences.
  • What the government is required to prove.
  • Available defenses.

 

White collar crime cases have a unique aspect to them that require a defense team to take a unique approach. Many times, though not always, white collar crimes are high-profile cases. This means that we need to take the media into account when fashioning a defense to a white collar criminal charge. So just how do we do that?

First, we listen to our clients. Our clients know better than anyone what they want and what their priorities and goals are for resolving the case. For many of our clients, anonymity is one of their top priorities. News of criminal charges can affect reputation, job security, livelihood, family, friends and more.

Second, we fashion a defense around our client’s top priorities. When anonymity is a top priority, we do everything in our power to reduce the likelihood of media coverage or identifying information being available. We create a plan, working hand in hand with our client, that is uniquely tailored to their goals.

We have experience making public media statements, responding to inquiries and answering questions on behalf of our clients. We do all of this with our client’s top goals in mind at all times.

If you are charged with a white collar crime, you can know that by coming to Hester Law Group, you get the experience and knowledge associated with large firms, but the unique approaches, client-centered services of a smaller firm. We will work to help you identify your top priorities each step of the way and then create a plan to achieve those.
