Miami White Collar Crimes Law Firm
Protecting your rights
White collar crime is the term used for elaborate crimes that are committed for the sole purpose of financial gain. Although these crimes are distinguished from physical and violent crimes, the penalties can be equally severe. Fighting a white collar crime charge requires an attorney with substantial financial, accounting, securities, tax and business knowledge in addition to extensive criminal defense and trial experience. Because many white collar crimes are federal, only an attorney who can successfully navigate the complexities of the federal court system can provide an effective defense. The attorneys at Neal R. Sonnett, P.A. have 40 years of experience in white collar criminal defense and can help you with cases involving:
Professionals and corporate entities caught in the system
Often the targets of white collar criminal investigations are professionals with no past criminal history. CEOs, doctors, lawyers, accountants, financial traders and high-level executives may suddenly face serious repercussions for their mistakes. The penalties for white collar crimes include heavy fines, restitution, long jail sentences, forfeiture of professional licenses and tarnished reputations. An indictment alone can severely devalue corporate entities and risk stockholder investments and the future of the company. Attorney involvement at every stage is crucial. Our attorneys stand by our clients throughout every stage of the judicial process, including:
- Grand jury investigations
- Regulatory investigations
- Internal corporate investigations
- Complex criminal trials
- Post-conviction issues
- International extradition
Time is of the essence
White collar crimes are often highly technical cases that require thorough examination of financial and personal information and communications. Although these cases may take years to resolve, a mere five seconds and one errant email or statement may seal your fate. If you have any suspicion that you are under investigation or if you are compiling a case against another party, it is essential that you contact a qualified white collar attorney to obtain advice on how to limit your own liability.
