Background from a Manhattan White Collar Crime Lawyer
Today White Collar Crime is currently on the rise in Manhattan, and the Manhattan office of the District Attorney is prepared to combat it aggressively. A Manhattan White Collar Crime Lawyer will be aware that the Manhattan office of the District Attorney is focused on and committed to stopping all kinds of White Collar Criminal Behavior. At Stephen Bilkis & Associates, PLLC, each Manhattan Criminal Lawyer on our team is aware that, depending on the facts of the case, a White Collar Crime can be a violation of the law in New York State as well as of Federal law (tax fraud).
White Collar Crime is in fact a broad category, including a wide range of dishonest business-related schemes (as opposed to “physical” crimes). It can include any of the following criminal behavior:
- Money Laundering
- Insurance Fraud (including Auto Insurance Fraud, Workers Compensation Fraud, Health Insurance Fraud, and more)
- Unemployment Fraud
- Tax Fraud
- Mail Fraud
- Bank Fraud
- Credit Card Fraud
- Stock Fraud
- Securities Fraud
- Mortgage Fraud
- Medicaid Fraud
If you commit any of the above acts, you have committed a White Collar Crime. Obviously, a White Collar Criminal act can involve types of Fraud and other attempts to distort or misrepresent information in order to illegally achieve a personal gain or benefit. These cases can often involve multiple charges. An Insurance Fraud case can, for example, lead to an added criminal charge of Grand Larceny. And a charge of Credit Card Fraud could very well be accompanied by a charge of Mail Fraud. These charges are, however, defensible—with the right Manhattan White Collar Criminal Lawyer on your side, it is possible for you to avoid a conviction.
