Charged with a white-collar crime?
Greenville attorney Keith Williams is board-certified in both state and federal criminal law.
Protecting Careers In White Collar Cases
White-collar crimes are paperwork cases. The government relies upon bank records, business records, and other documents to build a case against you. The problem is that a case can look one way on paper but another way in real life. An experienced white-collar crime lawyer can help with your defense.
A white-collar case generally carries a lower prison sentence than a violent crime, but its consequences are no less serious. I am keenly aware of the career consequences of any criminal conviction, especially when it comes to representing a professional, such as a doctor, lawyer, or business owner.
I’m Dedicated To Protecting Your Rights
I am criminal defense attorney Keith Williams. I have dedicated my Greenville law practice to defending people charged with federal criminal charges in Eastern North Carolina, including white-collar crimes such as:
- Fraud charges, specifically wire fraud, bank fraud, credit card fraud, mortgage fraud, tax fraud, and Medicare and other types of health care fraud
- Embezzlement from an employer or organization
- Kickback investigations
- Making false claims to the government (under the False Claims Act)
- Money laundering
- Honest services cases
In conclusion, white-collar cases are almost always about money. The larger the amount, the more likely that prosecution will take place in federal court. I am certified by the North Carolina State Bar as a board-certified specialist in both federal and state criminal law.
Defenses Exist But Are Based On The Specific Facts Of A Case
Just as some evidence in a white-collar crime case can make you look guilty, other evidence can support a lack of criminal intent. Often, police stop their investigation as soon as they find information that looks incriminating.
My goal is to find what the government missed. It’s not unusual for a white-collar crime case to involve thousands of records. As your white-collar crime lawyer, I will sift through all of it, searching for evidence that shows what you did was not criminal.
