White Collar Crimes

White Collar Crimes in Philadelphia

White collar crimes usually refer to criminal activities that are nonviolent in nature and involve a financial element. These crimes are often quite serious and may even be prosecuted as a federal offense, carrying significant penalties such as jail time, probation, and expensive fines.

Some white collar offenses are brought in front of a grand jury before any formal charges are filed. If you have received a “target letter” saying that you are under investigation by a grand jury, you should contact an attorney immediately.

Some examples of white collar crimes include:

  • Credit card fraud.
  • Embezzlement.
  • Identity theft.
  • Money laundering.
  • Insurance fraud.
  • Tampering with records.
  • Forgery.
  • Tax evasion.

Defending Against White Collar Crime Charges

There are many ways the attorneys at Kenny, Burns & McGill can help to defend you against charges of white collar crimes. One important element of all white collar crimes is intent. In order to successfully convict you of a white-collar offense, a prosecutor must prove that you intentionally defrauded another party or took something that was not yours. If our attorneys are able to prove that you did not intend to commit a white collar crime, you may have charges against you dismissed.

If you have been charged with a white collar crime or believe you are under investigation by a local, state, or federal law enforcement agency, it is important to reach out to an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately. At Kenny, Burns & McGill, our attorneys have handled thousands of cases from start to finish, including many different types of financial and white collar crimes.

As our firm also handles highly-complex civil litigation cases, our attorneys have additional experience in business disputes and transactions, matters involving the IRS and insurance companies, and criminal defense cases which are connected to civil litigation cases in which victims are seeking compensation for monetary damages.
