Los Angeles White Collar Fraud
Knowledgeable Criminal Defense Lawyer
White collar crime refers to crimes committed by professionals and public officials and typically revolve around a deliberate attempt to mislead or trick others for their own financial gain. If you have been arrested or are under investigation for white collar fraud, speaking with a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer is in your best interest. At Law Offices of Scott R. Spindel, we have extensive experience representing offenses of this nature.
Fighting White Collar Fraud Charges
Fraud and other white collar criminal charges often take months of investigation before the police make an arrest and prosecutors press charges. If you have been questioned by a federal or state investigator or you have already been charged, you must consult with your counsel before you say anything to the prosecutor.
White collar crime charges are often complex and require a thorough understanding of financial laws and RICO regulations. Investigators often don’t understand the evidence they need for probable cause and mistakes can lead to our firm obtaining a dismissal of charges or a reduction to a non-federal offense.
