Honolulu White Collar Crimes Lawyer | Attorneys for Freedom Law Firm

Honolulu White Collar Crimes Attorney

The term “white collar crimes” relates to financial crimes that are non-violent in nature. These crimes are usually committed by individuals, businesses, or government professionals. It was first defined by the sociologist Edwin Sutherland in 1939 as “a crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of their occupation”. Because these crimes were thought to be usually perpetrated by people who wore suits, the term “white collar crimes.” was born.

Typical white-collar crimes may include:

White-collar crimes usually involve some type of fraud or deception as a means for financial gain. In many cases, these crimes are committed by people in the context of their workplace position who have or can gain access to their company’s bank accounts. These positions might include banking, investment firms, accounting, insurance, or mortgage industries. These types of crimes can be charged at the state or federal level. White-collar crime investigations may involve accounting and bookkeeping forensics.

Many times, in white collar cases the prosecution will be required to prove the defendant did not simply make a mistake. By doing this they will investigate what is known as the mens rea of the defendant or in other words, the mental state of the person charged. The prosecution needs to prove that the defendant acted with bad intent.

White collar crimes can be very serious and in certain cases involve mandatory prison, if the amount involved exceeds $100,000.00. These cases can be time-consuming and expensive to defend because they may require the use of many financial experts, such as tax professionals, forensic accountants, document examiners, and other investigators.

I have had the distinct pleasure of working with the Attorneys For Freedom Law Group during a... couple difficult circumstances in my life and although it is never fun to have the need for a defense attorney, the tireless efforts that Mark, Rachel and the rest of the team put in on my cases went over and above. At the end of the day my results were better than I could have expected. I highly recommend them for all of their services and more than satisfied with everything that they did for me.Thank you Attorneys for Freedom,Chip Kotyread more

I highly recommend the Attorneys For Freedom! I signed up for the attorneys on retainer program and... it has literally saved me tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The program manager, Jonathan Harris, guided me through the process of using their legal service’s like a true professional. The communication has been excellent and it truly was refreshing and comforting knowing I had a reputable law firm helping me every step of the way. He actually relieved me from the headaches of trying to deal with this issue, so I could focus on our business and as a result my business partner and I did get a favorable outcome that we’re happy with.read more
