Speak to Our Brooklyn and Queens Embezzlement Attorneys BEFORE You Are Charged

If you are being investigated for white collar crimes, it is important not to interface with investigators, especially before talking to an attorney. You will not help your case by admitting anything or trying to talk your way out of it. Remember, Martha Stewart went to prison not for insider trading, but for lying to investigators.

In many white collar crime cases, investigations are conducted over the course of months before arrests are made and charges filed. Early intervention in these cases could mean that charges never get filed — significantly preserving the individual’s future career opportunities.

Our attorneys will analyze your specific circumstances to determine how to proceed. We may recommend testifying before a grand jury to try to avoid an indictment or we may have to litigate to the end if there is a possibility of acquittal. Whether we are fighting the case in court or negotiating with prosecutors, our goal is to avoid incarceration and a felony conviction if at all possible. Early and aggressive defense may allow us to resolve your case with fines and restitution, or perhaps no criminal record at all.
