Milwaukee White Collar Crime Attorney

What are White Collar Crimes?

Often committed in a business situation, a white collar crime usually involves some kind of nonviolent criminal activity that is carried out for the purpose of financial gain.

In the 1930s, legal violations by persons of “respectability and high social status” made during the course of their work became known as “white collar crimes.” Since that time, these types of crimes have significantly increased in number and complexity.

At Schiro Criminal Defense, we’ll give you one-on-one counsel through every step of the legal process. Schiro Criminal Defense offers more than 40 years of experience fighting for its clients. Attorney Schiro has the skills and resources to handle the most complex issues that come with charges of fraud and financial offenses.

Understanding White Collar Crime in Milwaukee

Being charged with a white collar crime is a serious matter. The potential impact and legal punishment can be severe, so it’s important to have an experienced attorney advocating for you as soon as possible.

Types of White Collar Crimes

There are a variety of offenses that fall under the umbrella of white collar crime, including:

  • Fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Bankruptcy fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Bribery
  • Antitrust violations
  • Credit card fraud
  • Theft of trade secrets
  • Health care fraud
  • Corporate fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Intellectual property theft
  • Environmental law violations

If you have been accused of or are under investigation for any of the above offenses, we strongly encourage you to seek representation sooner rather than later. Early action can often clear up a matter before it becomes public knowledge and thereby protect the defendant’s reputation.

If convicted, you could be facing:

  • Large fines
  • Prison time
  • And restitution to victims

Not only that, you reputation could be severely jeopardized.
