White Collar Criminal Defense
If you or a loved one is accused of a non-violent crime, it can still be a risk for harsh punishment under the law, and a white-collar criminal defense attorney should immediately be retained. Charges such as embezzlement, fraud, money laundering, and bribery, while non-violent, are serious and require a strong legal defense. Many people are surprised to find that they carry more than financial penalties and can result in a possible jail or prison sentence. The experienced legal team at LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C. is dedicated to fighting on your behalf to have the charges dropped or reduced. No matter how serious the charges or how strong the evidence, we will find a way to help you.

Even if the charges are found to be baseless, the accusations alone can be damaging to a person and their reputation. It is common for someone accused of a white-collar crime to lose their job along with their business and/or professional licenses, as well as their family and even their home. These are all grave results from just an allegation. That is why at LEWIS & DICKSTEIN, P.L.L.C., we take white-collar criminal defense seriously. We know that there are times when an act can be committed without knowing it is against the law. Unknowingly breaking the law is no defense, but a skilled defense attorney will be able to present the case in a sincere, convincing manner that will show that there was no intent to commit a crime, resulting in the defendant’s acquittal.
We can frequently stop charges before they start. If there is simply an allegation or you believe that you’re a suspect, you will want to hire retained counsel immediately. The best hope of avoiding charges is with proactive, competent, and highly-skilled pre-charge representation. Many people worry about how it would “look” if they retained a known criminal defense attorney. The truth is that if you are suspected, the government already believes your guilty, and they are trying to build a case against you. Hiring a top quality and highly-respected lawyer makes you look responsible and serious about your defense. If a prosecutor was on the fence relative to deciding whether to charge you, the right lawyer might be able to push the prosecutor into not filing charges. If the police are only telling the prosecutor one side of the story, your lawyer can advocate for you and make sure your voice is heard. You cannot speak for yourself because “anything you say can and will be used against you.” Your lawyer is free to talk for you and make sure any mitigating information is passed along to the prosecutor or Assistant United States Attorney that may be considering filing charges.
