Staten Island White Collar Crime Lawyer

Hey there! If you’re looking for help with a white collar crime case in Staten Island, you’ve come to the right place. My name’s [insert name], and I’m a lawyer here in Staten Island who focuses on defending folks accused of white collar crimes like fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, tax evasion, and more. I know dealing with criminal charges can be scary, but don’t worry – I’m here to help explain the process and make sure your rights are protected.

First off, what exactly are white collar crimes? Basically, they’re non-violent crimes that involve some kind of financial fraud or deception, often committed by business professionals or public officials. The term “white collar” comes from the fact that these crimes are usually committed by folks in professional settings who wear white collar shirts, as opposed to “blue collar” manual laborers. White collar crimes can include:

  • Fraud (like identity theft, forgery, wire fraud, bank fraud, etc)
  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Tax evasion
  • Insider trading
  • Bribery and kickbacks

While these crimes don’t involve physical violence, they can still carry serious penalties. That’s why it’s so important to have an experienced white collar crime attorney on your side if you’re facing charges. Here are some of the ways I can help:

  • Review the charges and evidence against you – I’ll look closely at the prosecution’s case to identify any weaknesses.
  • Conduct an independent investigation – I often find exonerating evidence the police missed.
  • Negotiate with prosecutors – My goal is getting charges reduced or dismissed completely.
  • Defend you in court – If necessary, I’ll vigorously defend you at trial.
  • Argue for minimal sentencing – If convicted, I’ll fight for the lightest possible punishment.

When looking for a white collar crime lawyer in Staten Island, make sure to choose someone with specific experience defending these types of cases. Don’t just go with any criminal defense attorney. White collar cases often involve complex financial transactions and require an attorney with specialized knowledge. As a former Manhattan prosecutor, I have the perfect background to handle these cases from the defense side.

I offer a free consultation, so get in touch to go over the details of your case. I’ll assess your options and help put together the strongest possible defense. My goal is avoiding jail time and keeping your record clean. Don’t go it alone against experienced prosecutors – let me stand by your side and fight for the best possible outcome.

Common White Collar Crimes in Staten Island

Staten Island has seen its fair share of white collar crime cases over the years. Some of the more common offenses I see here include:

Tax Evasion

Al Capone famously went down for tax evasion back in the day, and it remains a common charge today. Failing to report income, inflating deductions, hiding money overseas – these are some ways folks get in trouble with the IRS. But an experienced tax attorney can often negotiate settlements or even avoid prosecution altogether. For more, see this overview of federal tax evasion laws.

Wire Fraud

Wire fraud involves using electronic communications like phone, email, or fax to execute fraudulent schemes. Common examples include identity theft, advancing fee scams, and phony investment opportunities. Penalties can be severe – each instance of wire fraud carries up to 20 years in prison. But an aggressive defense can get charges reduced or dismissed. Learn more about federal wire fraud statutes here.

Medicare/Medicaid Fraud

With major healthcare programs like Medicare and Medicaid, there are ample opportunities for unscrupulous medical providers to commit fraud. This could involve overbilling, kickbacks for referrals, billing for unnecessary services, etc. But healthcare fraud cases require highly specialized legal knowledge. An experienced attorney can identify procedural flaws and other ways to undermine the prosecution’s case.

Finding the Right Lawyer

If you or a loved one is facing white collar crime charges in Staten Island, it’s critical to have an attorney with specific experience in this area. Here are some tips on finding the right lawyer:

  • Look for 5+ years of relevant experience – White collar defense is a specialty.
  • Find someone familiar with local courts and prosecutors.
  • Ask about trial experience – You want someone aggressive who won’t back down.
  • Make sure they have resources to conduct in-depth investigations.
  • Personality fit – You’ll be working closely together.
  • Avoid promises or guarantees – Ethical attorneys won’t make these.

Also important – make sure to ask about legal fees upfront so there are no surprises. White collar cases can sometimes drag on, leading to mounting bills.

If you need an experienced and aggressive white collar crime lawyer in Staten Island, get in touch to set up a free case evaluation. I have the skills and knowledge to protect your rights and future. Don’t wait – the sooner we start building your defense, the better.
