White Collar

Our Washington White Collar Criminal Defense Attorneys have extensive experience representing clients in federal court for white collar crimes. We handle cases involving medicare fraud, healthcare fraud, tax evasion, embezzlement, credit card fraud, bankruptcy fraud and counterfeiting, mortgage fraud, mail fraud, forfeiture of large amounts of money, and other matters.

White collar crimes are unique and require experience in both federal court and that type of crime. They typically involve a high volume of documents and require great attention to detail. If you hire an inexperienced white collar criminal defense attorney, they may not have the availability and capacity to handle your case. In addition, your attorney needs to be familiar with federal court procedure, evidence rules and local rules of the court. Federal court is extremely complicated and one mistake could be extremely detrimental to your case.

In defending your white collar criminal case in federal court in Washington, we will explain the process and what you can expect as well as answer any questions you have. We know this may be your first experience in federal court, and we want to ensure you fully understand everything that happens. No question is too small. We also understand that this can be overwhelming and are happy to explain things in multiple ways to ensure you truly understand everything about your case and have all of your questions answered. Communication is extremely important to us and a priority for all of our Washington White Collar Criminal Defense Attorneys.  We need to ensure you fully understand your case to be able to make decisions about strategy, negotiations and other aspects of your case.

All of our Washington White Collar Criminal Defense Attorneys are also available to handle appeals of white collar criminal convictions to the 9th Circuit and Supreme Court of the United States, if necessary. We petition, write and argue appeals, personal restrain petitions and writs of habeas corpus in both state and federal court. Similarly, we will explain this process and ensure you fully understand what is happening. We have successfully obtained numerous reversals of criminal convictions for clients who were wrongfully accused or victims of prosecutorial misconduct or ineffective assistance of counsel. We believe in our clients and will continue to fight for justice for you through the appellate phase.

In addition to handling negotiations, trials, sentencing and appeals, we also guide clients through federal investigations that have not gone to a federal grand jury yet. The earlier we get involved, the more we are able to help our clients and prepare for what may come next. We advise our clients on whether to cooperate with law enforcement, whether you should make any statements to anyone and whether you should disclose documents, among other things.

We know that white collar criminal defense cases can be high profile and appreciate and understand our clients’ need for anonymity. We are skilled in navigating the media, making statements and answering questions and requests for information.
