Well-Versed In All Types Of White Collar Crime

The term “white collar crimes” is somewhat of a misnomer. Although business executives and high-level managers can certainly face such charges, so can any individual. The term simply refers to nonviolent theft-related crimes in a broad sense.

Many different state and federal crimes fall into this category. Examples include:

  • Embezzlement
  • Fraud
  • Insider trading
  • Forgery
  • Bribery
  • Identity theft
  • Credit card fraud
  • Criminal copyright infringement
  • Money laundering
  • Internet crimes and hacking

Mr. Hiatt handles all of these cases, among others. He can advise you of your options and the potential penalties in your particular case.

Although white collar crimes carry a less weighty stigma than violent crimes, they can still lead to significant consequences. Most are felonies, which means you could be facing jail time in a state or federal prison. Additionally, a conviction can leave a lasting stain on your reputation, impeding your employment prospects and limiting other future opportunities.
