How to Defend Against White Collar Crimes

  • Lack of Intent: In many white collar crime cases, proving intent is crucial for a conviction. If we can demonstrate that you had no intention to commit a crime, it can significantly impact the outcome of your case.
  • Mistaken Identity: If there is a possibility of mistaken identity or insufficient evidence linking you to the crime, we will diligently investigate and present this evidence in your defense.
  • Violation of Rights: We will scrutinize the methods used by law enforcement during their investigation to ensure your rights were not violated. Any violations may lead to the suppression of evidence.
  • Insufficient Evidence: If the prosecution's evidence is weak or circumstantial, we will work to create reasonable doubt in the jurors' minds.
