DC White-Collar Criminal Defense Team

White-collar offenses are typically related to business, commercial, and financial enterprises. Offenses such as fraud, embezzlement, government procurement fraud, healthcare fraud, and public corruption and bribery are typically referred to as white-collar crimes because white-collar professionals are generally individuals who are targeted for investigation.

Due to the complex nature of these offenses and the potential risks and damage that can be wrought by conviction, it is crucial that anyone facing such charges contact a DC white-collar criminal defense lawyer. That lawyer will possess the skills and experience necessary for providing a strong defense against all of the offenses that fall within the category of white-collar crimes, which includes:

White-collar cases are often document-heavy and involve complex financial information. A DC white-collar criminal defense lawyer will have experience with the evidence and investigative tactics often seen in these criminal cases.

There are a myriad of law enforcement agencies that conduct investigations of potential white-collar crimes. Those agencies include but are not limited to, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Department of Labor (DOL), the Small Business Administration (SBA), the Food & Drug Administration (FDA), and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). These agencies devote an enormous amount of money, manpower, and investigative techniques to their efforts.

Federal Criminal Defense in Washington, DC

Many offenses in DC, particularly serious felonies, may be brought against an individual in federal court. The federal court system is different from local DC Superior Court, requiring representation from a skilled DC federal criminal attorney who is admitted to practice in federal court. Although the District of Columbia is a city under federal control, crimes such as assault, robbery, and DUI are typically prosecuted as local crimes in the District of Columbia Superior Court. Local statutes govern these crimes, though the procedures and punishments are heavily influenced by federal law.

No matter what the alleged crime may entail, an aggressive DC federal criminal lawyer is essential if an individual finds themselves targeted by the federal government. We represent individuals accused in white-collar criminal cases, congressional investigations, federal criminal cases, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and RICO matters.

If you have been charged or are currently under investigation for such crimes, please click through to our contact page to schedule an office consultation.

Finding The "Best" Lawyer For Your Case

When someone is facing serious federal or white-collar charges, they often ask who the “best lawyer” is. In truth, there is no “best lawyer” who fits under such a broad label. What you should be looking for is the attorney who you believe is best suited to your case, and that can depend on a number of things. If you are facing federal charges, you will want to look for lawyers (or a law firm with lawyers) who are admitted to practice in federal court. Some criminal defense attorneys only practice at the state level.
