New Jersey White Collar Criminal Defense

What Is A White Collar Crime?

White collar crime is typically committed by people who are in the business world. Money laundering, insurance fraud, insider trading and tax evasion are some examples of some of the things that can be classified as a white collar crime.

White collar crimes can also be international. The Foreign Corrupt Practices Act prevents people from making payments to government officials outside of the country in order to secure business. Not only does the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act apply to bribery, but it can also apply to money laundering.

Defense Strategies for White Collar Crimes

Poking Holes

In order for you to be charged with any crime, there has to be evidence to prove that you actually did it. That is why your attorney will examine the evidence being used against you and look for holes in the argument.

Show Lack of Intent

The prosecutor has to be able to prove intent. Even if you were engaged in fraud, you may still get your charges dropped if your attorney can convince the judge and the jury that you did not intend to commit fraud.

Lack of Knowledge

If there are multiple parties involved in a white collar crime, then the prosecutor has to be able to prove that you knew you were engaged in fraud.


Coercion is the act of forcing someone to do something. If you were coerced into doing something, then this is a defense that you can use in court.


Entrapment occurs when a law enforcement official or police officers get people to commit crimes that they would not have otherwise done. The official or police officer uses intimidating tactics in order to get a person to commit the crime. Force, threats and fraud are examples of some of the ways that people can be convinced to do something that they would not otherwise do.

The Victims Are Guilty

If you are working with another organization that is also committing a white collar crime, then they will not be able to seek restitution. You may also be able to get your charges dropped.

Statute of Limitations

There is a Statute of Limitations that will apply. If someone who attempts to file a lawsuit after the Statute of Limitations expires, then it will likely be thrown out.

Plea Bargain

If you plead guilty, then you may be able to get a lighter punishment. An attorney can tell you whether it is a good idea to take a plea bargain.

Why It Is Important for You to Hire A White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer

There is a lot on the line if you have been accused of a white collar crime. Not only is your reputation and career on the line, but your freedom is also on the line. If you have a criminal conviction on your record, then it can be hard for you to obtain a professional license or get an educational scholarship. It can also be hard for you to get a job.

Your case will likely end up in court. That is why you need a New Jersey white collar criminal defense attorney. Your lawyer will fight hard for you. Their goal is to ensure that your case has a favorable outcome so that you can return to your normal life.

It is important to note that getting legal representation does not make you look guilty. In fact, this is one of the best things that you can do. You need to have an attorney to help with your case so that you avoid saying anything that can incriminate you.

How Long Can The Federal Government Investigate You?
The federal government is currently investigating thousands of people across the United States for a wide variety of crimes. They have a considerable latitude to investigate these men and women. However, that latitude is not unlimited. They eventually have to either cease their investigation or file charges in most instances. Individuals who are under investigation need to know their rights and be familiar with the law in order to minimize the impact of such a traumatic event in their lives.

Stress of federal investigations

Federal investigations can put an individual under a considerable amount of stress and strain. Investigators can pry into practically every part of a person’s life. With a search warrant, they may ransack a person’s home and rifle through all of their belongings. All of a person’s digital applications are subject to an extensive search. Investigators can talk to a person’s family, friends, and work. They can go through bank records and recover the multitude of digital information that a person tried to delete from their hard drives.

They can jeopardize a target’s career and relationships. In some instances, federal investigators want to put pressure on a person to confess to a crime or to testify against another individual. In order to do this, they may take actions that are legally or morally questionable. All of these factors can combine to make a federal investigation a significant detriment to a person’s life. The stress is partially the point of the investigation. Federal investigators want a confession and a plea deal. They want to be able to convict the individual involved and have that person testify to any crimes that they may have known about from other people.

Possible time limits

The main way that an investigation ends is when it runs up against the statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is a law stating that a person cannot be charged with a crime after a certain period elapses following the commission of the crime. For instance, if a person is investigated for bank robbery and the statute of limitations is five years, that person cannot be charged six years after the crime has occurred. Only certain serious crimes, such as murder and terrorism, do not have statutes of limitations in any system.

These statutes were put in place to prevent investigators from hounding individuals for years or even decades after an alleged crime is committed. They were enacted with the knowledge that evidence eventually grows stale and is no longer useful to a state or federal government. In some instances, the statute of limitations does not completely halt an investigation. It may simply force the federal government to file charges prior to a particular deadline.

In that case, an individual has more rights and power. They have the right to discovery and to know the evidence that has been collected against them. They also have more leeway to publicly discuss the case and eventually get it thrown out from an impartial judge. Charges are not the most desirable outcome of an investigation. But they can help ensure that the investigation ends relatively quickly.

What to do

Anyone who is currently being investigated by the federal government needs to immediately seek the help of an attorney. This attorney will inform them of any and all statutes of limitations regarding their alleged crimes. They will also be able to keep overzealous investigators away from a particular target. In instances where investigators are overstepping their bounds, a lawyer can bring an injunction that keeps investigators far away from the individual and gets any charges that result from the investigation thrown out. In most cases, investigators will back off and act legally if they know that the target is being represented by a competent, capable defense attorney.


A federal investigation is always a serious manner. Individuals should be honest with investigators and do nothing to impede their investigation. But they should also hire a lawyer and keep in touch with that lawyer surrounding any potential violations of the law committed by federal investigators. There are statutes of limitations and other confining concepts that constrain the activities of these men and women. A lawyer is essential to ensuring that a person is protected from these many potentially illegal and immoral actions.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

My attorney at Spodek was Abigail. She was very knowledgeable and helpful with all my questions and concerns, as well as responsive. Her fees are affordable and Abigail took the time to make sure I understood everything relating to my case. I highly recommend Abigail and will request her services in the future.

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.
I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
