White Collar Crime

By comparison, many types of white collar crimes may not seem as severe as those that do violent physical harm to others, but the penalties can be equally, if not more, severe. In addition, white collar crime cases take up considerable more time and court resources. Those charged with such crimes as real estate fraud or embezzlement may find themselves in jail or out on bond for months before ever making an appearance. If you or a loved one is being charged with a white collar crime in the state of Florida, having a good Florida criminal defense lawyer on your side can prove to be priceless.

 

White collar crimes in the State of Florida can encompass a broad variety of offenses, and they are becoming more and more prevalent during times of economic struggle. Many people are drawn to selling counterfeit goods because of the promise of quick profits. In areas such as Miami, access to open waters means access to incoming shipments of counterfeit merchandise. However, for many people, the promises of profits from this type of merchandise end in peril when Florida state law enforcement get involved. Often, these types of business people fail to include the added cost of Florida criminal defense in their overall cost of doing business.

 

Other types of white collar crimes that one can be arrested for in the state of Florida include:

 

  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Real estate fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Banking fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Healthcare fraud
  • Medicare fraud
  • Medicaid fraud
  • Conspiracy to commit fraud
  • Racketeering
