Legal options for those facing white collar crime charges

The penalties for white collar crime in Washington can be severe, and investigations are sometimes triggered by simple mistakes or financial assumptions that later turned out to be incorrect. If you have been accused of committing a white collar crime or feel that you could be under investigation, you may wish to consult with an attorney who has experience in this area to get a better understanding of your situation and learn more about your available options.

Cases involving white collar crimes can be complex and generally involve large amounts of financial data. If you are suspected or accused of committing one of these crimes, you may wish to seek out a criminal defense attorney who is familiar with these laws and may know what to look for when scrutinizing corporate records and bank statements. Attorneys with this kind of experience could also be better able to identify weaknesses in criminal complaints and the key evidence that will likely swing cases one way or another.

These matters generally take at least four to six months to resolve, and especially complex cases can drag on for a year or longer. You may be eager to bring your case to a speedy conclusion, but experienced attorneys may recommend a more cautious approach. Prosecutors are sometimes reluctant to take these cases to trial, and they may become more flexible during plea negotiations when court dates are looming.

Prosecutors often like to settle white collar crime cases at the negotiating table because they know that jurors can become distracted or lose interest when they spend days listening to experts pore over financial records.
