White Collar Crime
New Jersey Defense Lawyer
White Collar Crime, Contractor fraud
White collar crime is a broad category referring to non-violent crime committed for financial gain. Examples include fraud, embezzlement, employee theft, and Internet crime, contractor kickbacks, and illegal purchasing schemes. In many cases, activities formerly considered standard business practices are now prosecuted as criminal offenses. If you suspect that you are under investigation, or have been questioned about your business practices, it is extremely important that you exercise your Constitutional right to remain silent until you are represented by an attorney. Any comment you make in an effort to explain your situation can later be held against you.
