Business Crime and White Collar Defense
Federal and state white collar criminal attorneys
If you have been charged with a business crime or white collar crime, at the state or federal level, you are going to need an experienced white collar attorney. The Ohio criminal defense attorneys practicing at Yavitch & Palmer Co., L.P.A. are seasoned and skilled criminal defense lawyers.
The difference between state and federal white collar crimes is based on whether you have violated a state or federal law. Similar to other types of criminal law, if your crime involves a federal agency then you have committed a federal crime. There are specific federal agencies that are often affected by white collar crimes:
- Internal Revenue Service
- United States Postal Service
- Securities and Exchange Commission
- United States Treasury
White collar crime penalties
If you have been convicted of a white collar crime, at the state or federal level, you could face:
- Giving back any monies or property you have unlawfully taken
- Surrender money and/or property
- Remain on home detention
- Released under strict supervision
Keep in mind that your lawyer is able to engage in negotiations with federal prosecutors if you have been charged with a federal offense. The federal prosecutor will likely refer to sentencing guidelines and suggest penalties without taking into consideration any extenuating circumstances. This is why hiring a sharp and experienced Ohio white collar criminal defense lawyer is in your best interest.
