White Collar Crimes

White collar crime can describe a wide variety of crimes, but they all typically involve crime committed through deceit and motivated by financial gain.

What are White Collar Crimes?

White collar crimes consists of a wide variety of financial transactions, ranging from relatively simple property transactions to complex, sophisticated corporate embezzlement. White collar crimes include the following:

  • Bribery
  • Corporate Fraud
  • Credit Card Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Extortion
  • Fiduciary Crimes
  • Forgery
  • Identity Theft
  • Internet Crimes
  • Investment Fraud
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Mail/Wire Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Public Corruption
  • Real Estate Fraud

White collar crimes typically require long-term investigations by law enforcement. Therefore, these cases present excellent Pre-File opportunities for Ninaz Saffari to convince the prosecutor not to proceed with the case against you, or to convince the police detective not to refer the case to the District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.

White collar criminal charges require a highly skilled, experienced white collar crime attorney who works with a private investigator, as well as forensics and financial experts. There will often be a great deal of evidentiary paperwork to examine and, therefore, it is important that your attorney have a sharp eye for certain details that could make the difference between dismissal and prosecution, or acquittal at trial or conviction. Ninaz Saffari has worked on fraud cases that involve thousands of documents covering financial transactions spanning many years.

Another challenge is attacking the District Attorney’s evidence, and presenting your defense evidence, to a jury in such a way that they will remain alert and engaged when listing to witnesses and reviewing documents regarding what could otherwise be dull financial transactions.

What Happens If I am Convicted of a White Collar Crime?

These types of crimes can carry severe penalties, including decades in prison and asset forfeitures. They can include the loss of educational and employment opportunities, the loss of your ability to obtain or maintain a professional license or adverse immigration consequences (if applicable). Ninaz Saffari works closely on these types of cases with another top attorney who specializes solely in these types of professional licensing issues.
