What are the White Collar Crimes?

A white collar crime can be almost any non-violent crime committed by a corporation, government entity, or individual for monetary or commercial gain. For example, when filing tax documents, companies must take special care to declare their income and outline their financial situation. Tampering with those numbers could result in a tax fraud charge.

Many business dealings are complicated. While some companies may intentionally fudge their numbers in hopes of receiving tax breaks, other professionals may simply get the math wrong. One simple mistake may lead to criminal charges of white collar crimes. At Jack Diamond Law Offices, our white collar crimes attorney knows that errors happen. With our help, you may be able to prove your innocence before the court. We do our best to get each white collar case dismissed or secure a not-guilty verdict.
