The term white collar crime describes crimes that typically do not involve violence and often involve money. The effective criminal defense of these charges can be complex and often requires familiarity with other areas of expertise, such as accounting, banking or medicine. In terms of the penalties and consequences of conviction, however, these crimes can be just as serious — if not more — than other more common crimes.

The white collar criminal defense attorneys at Willey & Chamberlain defend clients involved in all types of white collar criminal cases, ranging from accounting fraud to insider trading and including:

  • Health Care Fraud
  • Tax Evasion
  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Medicare Fraud
  • Medicaid Fraud
  • ERISA Violations
  • Pension Plan Fraud

  • Business Crimes
  • Accounting Fraud
  • Insider Trading
  • Securities Fraud
  • Anti-Trust Violations
  • Kickbacks
  • Money Laundering
  • Bankruptcy Fraud

  • Insurance Fraud
  • Mail Fraud
  • Wire Fraud
  • Retail Fraud
  • Telemarketing Fraud
  • Perjury
  • False Statements

What sets white collar crimes apart from other offenses is ordinarily the length and scope of the prosecution’s criminal investigation and the complexity of the defense. Often an investigation will take many months — and even years — putting your reputation, your livelihood and your freedom at risk.
