Facing White Collar Charges in Staten Island? How an Attorney Can Help

Hey there, I know the anxiety you must be feeling after being charged with a white collar crime in Staten Island. Maybe it’s fraud, embezzlement, money laundering or something else – either way, these complex allegations can ruin lives if not properly defended. Don’t lose hope though, you’ve come to the right place.

My name is Todd Spodek. I’m a top NYC white collar criminal defense lawyer who has successfully defended alleged financial and corporate crimes in Staten Island for over 20 years. From grand larceny and identity theft to Ponzi schemes and other “white collar” cases, I know how to fight back hard against accusations by the DA’s Office.

In this article, I’ll explain the common white collar charges brought in Staten Island, the assertive defense strategies skilled lawyers use, and why you need experienced representation on your side ASAP. Keep reading to understand your best path forward.

Common White Collar Charges in Staten Island

While most people associate white collar crime with Wall Street, it happens throughout NYC, including in Staten Island where local prosecutors are quite active. Some of the most frequent allegations there include:

Grand Larceny – Theft of money, property, or services valued over $1,000. Felony.

Embezzlement – Theft of money or assets entrusted to the defendant legally. Felony.

Identity Theft – Assuming someone’s identity to defraud them financially. Felony.

Money Laundering – Concealing assets obtained illegally to appear legitimate. Felony.

Forgery – Falsifying documents or signatures for unlawful gain. Felony.

Insurance/Tax Fraud – Providing false information on taxes or insurance claims. Felony.

Penalties range from probation to many years in prison. You need an attorney well-versed in fighting these charges.

How White Collar Crime Lawyers Beat Allegations

Skilled white collar defense attorneys can frequently defeat these allegations by leveraging their complexity to introduce reasonable doubt. For instance, I have effectively argued:

You lacked criminal intent – Sophisticated financial crimes require proving intent to defraud beyond mistakes or accidents. This allows room to fight allegations.

Transactions were legitimate – Complicated money trails can be perfectly legal once understood. We dig deep to show legitimacy.

No provable financial loss occurred – In embezzlement and fraud cases, documenting alleged losses can be challenged.

Statute of limitations expired – Many financial crimes have a 5 year statute we can argue has lapsed if old events are alleged.

Illegal police conduct – Agggressive prosecutors sometimes skirt laws, allowing for evidence suppression.

By relentlessly pursuing every possible argument like these, I’ve helped many Staten Island clients accused of white collar crimes avoid convictions. Don’t lose hope – fight back!
