White Collar Crimes

White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes are typically non-violent crimes and they are typically not drug-related. They often involve a business person using his or her position to illegally obtain funds or otherwise break a business-related statute. The name “white collar crime” is attributed to Edwin Sutherland, a sociologist and criminologist. He first used this term in 1939, describing it as a “crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation.”

If you are being investigated for a white collar crime by a federal agency such as the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of the Treasury, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), then it is imperative that you seek qualified legal counsel. The Law Offices of Julie Rendelman, LLC defends clients who are accused of committing crimes related to:

  • Bribery
  • Campaign Violations/Campaign Finance Violations
  • Counterfeiting and Forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Environmental Law Fraud (Violating a federal law/regulation like the Clean Air Act)
  • Financial Crimes

Conviction of a federal crime may not only affect your ability to find employment, as it creates a criminal record, but it also may result in incarceration or substantial fines. Authorities may also pursue an investigation of your corporation as well. Federal authorities have significant resources to investigate and prosecute alleged violators of crimes, such as those mentioned above. If you are under investigation or you have been asked to answer questions by authorities, then it is critical to have an attorney present. Investigators are trained to ask questions in a way that may encourage you to give a statement that may be used against you later on or to pressure you to enter into a deal that may not be in your best interest. Julie Rendelman is a lawyer who can help explain your rights to you and represent you with care and diligence throughout your case.
