White Collar Crime Attorney in Savannah
Fraud and Other White Collar Crimes: Savannah Criminal Defense Lawyer
A white collar crime is non-violent and involves financial gain through some form of illegal activity. These crimes, although no other person was physically injured, carry heavy punishments in our state. At The Schneider Law Firm, we defend people who are accused of a range of white collar offenses, including but not limited to the following:
- Credit card fraud
- Insurance fraud
- RICO crimes
- Accounting fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Bank fraud
- Money laundering
- Identity theft
- Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Tax evasion
- Securities fraud
- Ponzi schemes
Are you accused of any white collar offense? We are ready to get to work on your defense at once. You may or may not be guilty or you may have had some level of involvement. What is important to us is that you are defended correctly, and that you are protected. All defendants have rights, but these rights can be violated in any part of the criminal justice process. You may be the victim of illegal search and seizure or other act that oversteps the bounds of the law. You were accused of a crime, but the final outcome of your case rests in large part with the Savannah criminal lawyer you select to defend you.
As a former prosecutor, our lead and founding attorney has seen many people put away merely because their defense lawyer was not effective. This inspired him to move into the area of criminal law, and to utilize his experience and legal talent to zealously protect those facing criminal charges. It is advised that you get help from our firm at once if you are under investigation in a white collar crime case. Do not submit to questioning by law enforcement, even if you are innocent. Once you have been targeted as a possible suspect, you could face charges whether you are guilty or innocent, and will be forced to defend yourself.
Punishments for White Collar Crimes in Georgia
The penalties imposed are based upon the level of financial damage, and the impact the crime had on a company, government agency or other party. You may be forced to pay expensive fines, or in some cases, will face forfeiture of assets if it is believed that these assets were purchased with money you gained through a criminal operation. All you have worked for could be lost, including cars, home, property, and anything of value. Even if you are not guilty, these assets can be held until the case is resolved at trial. It stands to reason that your most important choice to make is who should represent you.
We believe that our firm offers the highest level of defense counsel possible, and we are extremely proud of our many positive verdicts in cases that at first appeared to be unwinnable. Read our client testimonials. We know all of the strategies to employ to protect our clients, and you can be confident that we will engage in any defense action that could benefit you. These actions include calling upon our professional resources in forensic accountants, computer experts and others that could provide expert testimony to support the case for your defense.
