Los Angeles Financial Crimes Lawyers

By Spodek Law Group | June 13, 2021

Protect Yourself from Financial Crimes with Help from Experienced Lawyers

Understanding Financial Crimes

Financial crimes are a vast spectrum of malicious acts that can leave investors and victims alike financially ruined. These crimes include fraud, white-collar crime, embezzlement, and other money-related offenses. If someone tries to swindle an investor out of their money, they may face trial in either state or federal court, with penalties varying based on factors such as the type and severity of the crime, the individual’s criminal history, and whether the case is prosecuted at the state or federal level.

The High-Stakes Battle in Court

Prosecutors often face intense pressure to convict people of financial crimes, especially when investors have been defrauded of significant sums of money. Public outrage and pressure from wealthy investors who fear losing their funds add to the pressure on prosecutors to pursue convictions aggressively.

Why You Need a Lawyer

If you are under investigation for financial crimes, it’s crucial to seek legal counsel immediately, even if you’re unsure if you’re being targeted. Investigations can take months or even years to build a case against you, making early preparation for your defense critical. An experienced financial crimes lawyer can audit your financial records, analyze any allegations against you, and create an effective defense strategy while ensuring you understand your legal rights.

The Devastating Consequences of Financial Crime Convictions

Convictions for financial crimes can result in decades of imprisonment and the payment of millions of dollars in restitution to victims. These convictions can devastate your financial security, happiness, and future.

Types of Charges

Federal and state laws define various financial crimes, including the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the Securities Act of 1934. If you are accused of investment fraud, that usually means you’ve used your clients’ money for your personal gain. Different charges cover this area, including accounting fraud, embezzlement, misrepresentation, and more. The type of crime you commit, such as negligence or intentional fraud, determines the charges brought against you, which may include conspiracy and mail fraud.

Don’t leave your future to chance – consult with an experienced financial crimes lawyer who can help you navigate the legal system, protect your rights, and ensure the best possible outcome for your case.

What Happens If You’re Convicted of Financial Crimes?

Severe Penalties Await Those Convicted of Financial Crimes

When it comes to financial crimes, the consequences of conviction are dire. With a guilty verdict, you can expect a lengthy stay in prison. Some may be handed sentences of 20 years or more, particularly if the crime involves hundreds of thousands of dollars. But that’s not all. You will also be required to make restitution – returning all the money that you took, even if you don’t have the funds to do so.

To make matters worse, the fines can run into thousands of dollars, adding another layer of financial burden. If you were a licensed financial professional, the chances are you will lose your license as well. Even after serving your time in prison, you will be placed on probation for an extended period. This means that any other illegal activity or breach of parole terms could result in a return to prison.

How to Defend Yourself Against Charges

The federal government has established a Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force, comprising agents from over 20 different agencies, which collaborates with state law enforcement to identify and prosecute fraudsters. It is an indication of the significant resources being allocated to tackling financial fraud.

To defend yourself against potential charges, your best option is to hire a lawyer. A skilled attorney can advise you on what to say and not say when dealing with law enforcement, protecting you from incriminating yourself. They can also assess the strength of the case against you and help you to prepare a defense.

If you’re facing prosecution at the federal level, a federal defense attorney is essential. If it’s at the state level, a California defense lawyer can help you navigate the complexities of the court.

No Financial Crime is Too Small to Warrant a Lawyer

Some of the most notorious financial crimes involve millions of dollars and celebrity investors. However, irrespective of the size of your financial crime, seeking legal advice is critical to mount a robust defense. Don’t hesitate to consult with a lawyer, even if you think your case is insignificant. Your future may depend on it.
