White collar crimes can be very exciting because there are usually so many different pieces to the puzzle that create a case. In almost every white collar case there are mountains of evidence that the government can have which can be exciting to be able to go through that. It is sort of like looking for needles in haystacks, trying to find a nugget or two, something that the government might have missed.
Absolutely. As I have said, white collar cases generally have a ton of discovery, and you need a law firm behind you because a sole practitioner really just isn’t going to have the bandwidth to go through all of this and still maintain his caseload.
I have a case pending right now where our initial discovery from the government contained five CD-ROM’s which were filled to maximum capacity with evidence. There are thousands and thousands of documents that we’re going through as we speak. That is too much for one person to adequately handle. It just is.
For this reason, if charged with the white collar offense, I would definitely be hiring a law firm that has a large enough staff that can help navigate these waters.
