Chattanooga White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers

Federal and State Criminal Defense

If you have been charged with a white collar crime, your defense attorney must have experience with these complex cases, as well as federal trial experience. Federal court has its own procedures and typically imposes harsher penalties on defendants. To fight the charges, you need an attorney with the knowledge and skill to battle federal prosecutors.

He can create a defense strategy tailored to the specifics of your case.

Thorough, Aggressive Representation

White collar crimes cover a broad spectrum of offenses, including:

  • Drug charges
  • Fraudulent prescriptions
  • Bank fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Forgery
  • Computer and Internet crimes
  • Child pornography possession and distribution
  • Identity theft
  • Wire fraud
  • Health care and Medicaid fraud

Depending on the crime, you may be facing state charges in Tennessee or federal charges. Our lawyers can defend you at the state and federal levels. We also handle federal and state criminal appeals.

Fighting a white collar criminal charge can take many months. We know how to investigate these cases, using accounting and computer experts when necessary. To convict an individual or business of fraud, for example, the prosecution must prove that the fraud was intentional. Our attorneys may work with accountants to show that there was no fraudulent intent. In some cases, an error in accounting or record keeping can be mistaken for fraud.

If you are facing white collar criminal charges, it is best to contact an attorney immediately. When we begin working on a case while law enforcement is still in the investigative stage, we may be able to prevent it from moving to an indictment.
