“White collar crime” is the term used to describe potentially intricate crimes committed usually for financial gain.

What you need to know

White collar crimes are often highly technical cases that require examination of years of financial and personal information and communications.  Unfortunately, it may only take five seconds to send an errant email that may seal one’s fate.  Issues often concern alleged criminal intent versus negligence, mistake, or other non-criminal cause.  The validity of a search warrant, suppression of evidence, admissibility of evidence, confrontation of alleged witnesses, reliability of informants, and many other factors may be involved.  If you have any suspicion that a case is being assembled against you, feel free to contact William Fanciullo to obtain representation and advice on how to possibly avoid or limit liability.  The penalties for white collar crimes can be extremely severe and may include payment of heavy fines and restitution and long jail sentences.
