WHITE COLLAR CRIMES
White collar crime is a phrase used to describe fraud, deception and other criminal offenses that typically occur in the business world. The government aggressively prosecutes anyone suspected of committing a white collar crime. The Law Offices of Bobby D. Mims, P.C., is a law firm made up of a team of skilled, intelligent and experienced white collar crime defenders who know what it takes to combat even the most complex criminal charges.
If you suspect you are under investigation for any white collar crime, seek legal help immediately. Delaying can only hurt your case. Below are a few examples of the types of cases a criminal defense attorney at our firm can assist you with:
Bank fraud: Any behavior that seeks to ultimately defraud a bank of funds is considered bank fraud by law enforcement.
Computer fraud: The use of a computer to commit identity theft or any degree of fraud is a serious crime that is usually prosecuted on the federal level.
Securities fraud: If law enforcement accuses you of stockholder theft or deceiving investors into making decisions based on invalid information, you may be charged with securities fraud.
Credit card fraud: Unauthorized use of a credit card to obtain items of value is considered a white collar crime.
Mortgage fraud: Misrepresenting information on a mortgage loan application is becoming more common given the current economy. If you face charges of mortgage fraud in NYC, our white collar crime defense lawyers can help you fight back.
Although nonviolent in nature, white collar crime is not victimless. Because of the propensity for individuals to profit from and repeat this type of offense, the government penalizes offenders harshly. After the banking crisis of 2007, the Congress extended the statute of limitations on Federal cases to 10 years after the fraud is discovered. Without the help of a criminal defense trial lawyer with experience in defending mortgage fraud or Internet fraud, you could face costly fines and a lengthy prison sentence.
