White collar crime is a phrase that means different things to different people. In Arizona it refers to crimes such as theft, embezzlement and fraud — in short, so-called white collar crimes often involve fraudulent business schemes. The penalties for such offenses can be significant, especially if large sums of money are involved.
White Collar Crime Lawyer in Arizona
When facing any white collar crime charge, it is important to have an experienced and knowledge defense lawyer. I am attorney, and Board Certified Specialist, Howard Snader and have been practicing criminal law in the Phoenix area since 1989. In addition, I have been certified as a Criminal Law Specialist by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization. This combination of experience and knowledge has allowed me to obtain favorable outcomes for many clients charged with fraud, embezzlement and other white collar crimes.
Examples of White Collar Crimes
I have successfully defended clients against charges such as these:
- Fraud and embezzlement schemes
- Internet crimes
- Identify theft
- Racketeering (RICO) and illegal enterprises
- Credit card fraud
- Ponzi schemes
My success in white collar crime cases is based on learning all the facts and understanding how to effectively negotiate with the prosecution. I understand what tactics are needed to convince the State they do not have sufficient evidence or have targeted the wrong person. I have obtained dismissals, and even prevented formal charges when hired at the first accusation.
In those cases formally prosecuted, I have obtained dismissals, not-guilty verdicts, and/or successfully negotiated lower amounts of restitution. I am not afraid to attack the accuser’s financial and insurance information to obtain the evidence needed to aggressively defend my clients. I am prepared to do the work necessary to build a strong and compelling defense for a client facing fraud or theft charges.
