White Collar Crimes in Redmond
Business people and professionals can be charged with white collar crimes, even though they didn't know they were breaking the law. A white collar crime conviction could land you in jail and cause serious damage to your personal reputation, so it makes sense to have a qualified lawyer defending your legal interests.
Crimes that qualify as "white collar" include such offenses as mail fraud, tax fraud, internet fraud, insurance fraud, and wire fraud, among others. The Redmond white collar criminal lawyers at the Law Office of Jason S. Newcombe have seen firsthand how a conviction can derail a professional's life. Earning the trust and respect of your peers takes hard work and dedication, so protect your reputation with help from our team of experienced Washington lawyers.
Some of the other more common white collar crimes committed in Redmond include extortion, forgery, bribery, racketeering, regulatory violations, and securities fraud. If someone purchases a home from another party who is losing it to foreclosure, and then rents it back to them, they can be charged with a serious crime. While they may think that they're conducting a legal business transaction, the government calls this practice equity-skimming, and it's against the law. Even if they are unaware that they were breaking the law, a conviction will incur punishments that could be life-altering.
If you are facing formal grand jury charges, your attorney will pursue any legal means to resolve your case favorably and discreetly. We may want to ask you some questions as we build your defense:
- Did you commit the crime or was it somebody else?
- Are you innocent of the charges?
- Were your actions legal?
- Did you commit the offense to the level at which you're accused?
