White collar crimes, sometimes referred to as "professional crimes", are illegal activities which typically involve the use of technology, actions to defraud organizations, institutions, or others for financial gain. Professional white collar crimes are illegal activities that typically do not include physical violence. When charged with a white collar crime you should take it very seriously, and consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately.
Being convicted of a professional white collar crime can be catastrophic to you personally, professionally, and financially. As new behaviors are identified, professional white collar crimes are an ever-changing field with new laws being written to include these new behaviors.
