Phil Weinberg on White Collar Crimes

The criminal penalties associated with white collar crimes, such as theft or fraud, are very serious. For many people, however, the professional consequences associated with white collar crime are just as serious. A conviction for a white collar crime will make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to find employment in many professions.

Clearly, if you are facing a white collar crime charge, the consequences you face could impact your life for years to come. With everything that is riding on the outcome of your case, it is essential to seek out professional legal assistance at the earliest opportunity.

I am criminal defense attorney Phillip L. Weinberg. I have the skills and experience to assist Washington residents with a wide variety of white collar criminal charges, including:

  • Theft
  • Forgery
  • Identity theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Cybercrime
  • Fraud, including tax fraud, insurance fraud, and accounting fraud
  • Criminal impersonation
  • Internet crimes

An Experienced White Collar Crime Defense Lawyer Protecting Your Rights

I view criminal cases as a problem to be solved, not just a battle to be fought. This is especially the case in white collar charges, which can involve extensive paper and electronic documentation. Your attorney must be able to sort through this evidence and arrange expert investigation, occasionally forensic computer investigation, in order to understand the charges and identify possible defenses. In certain cases, the government may not have sufficient evidence to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. You will not know this, however, until you have a skilled lawyer familiar with this type of criminal law and defense on your side.

When dealing with white collar crime charges, I work closely with my clients, and as I said, with my own private investigator, to develop a defense strategy that best suits their needs. In some cases, this could mean pushing for a dismissal of charges or challenging the evidence brought forward by the prosecution. In others, I may negotiate with prosecutors to arrive at a favorable plea deal. However your case is resolved, I will always seek the solution that best suits your interests and promotes maximum damage control.
