Have You Been Charged with a White Collar Crime?
What is a white collar crime?
“White Collar” charges are considered those charges that involve sophistication and lack any use of force. Though they may lack violence they are no less serious in the eyes of the law. Common types of white collar crimes are embezzlement, fraud, and other financial crimes. Contact an experienced white collar crime lawyer at the Law Offices of William C. Makler.
The phrase “white collar crime” was reportedly coined in 1939 by Professor Edwin Sutherland and has since become synonymous with the full range of frauds committed by business and government professionals. The possible penalties vary depending on the charge(s).
