North Carolina Lawyer: White Collar Crime Defense
At Freedman, Thompson, Witt, Ceberio & Byrd, PLLC, our attorneys will begin a vigorous defense early in a white-collar crime case, ideally before prosecutors file charges against our client, in many cases before law enforcement officials even approach our client. This proactive, aggressive approach allows us to position our client for the best possible outcome in the case.
When Should You Contact A Defense Attorney?
Before responding to any inquiry, contact an attorney with experience in financial crime defense if you experience any of the following:
- You believe your name might be connected to a preliminary investigation of an accounting or financial issue.
- You have received a letter from the IRS, FBI or another investigative agency requesting information.
- An IRS or FBI agent knocks at your door and asks to speak with you.
- You have received unusual requests at work, or your supervisor and coworkers are acting strangely.
If you would like to discuss your situation with a member of our firm, please contact our office to arrange a complimentary consultation at our Winston-Salem office. Mr. David Freeman is lead attorney in our criminal law practice, and has extensive experience defending white-collar crime cases in state and federal courts throughout North Carolina and in surrounding states.
The term white-collar crime refers to non-violent financial offenses, including embezzlement, bribery, extortion, tax fraud, bank fraud, Medicaid fraud, sale of sample drugs, Internet crimes, conspiracy to distribute illegal substances and employee theft. An investigation in a complex case may be underway for years before charges are filed and the case goes to trial.
When a white-collar case leads to a civil suit, attorneys from our litigation practice collaborate with members of our criminal law practice to provide efficient, cohesive representation. If our client is a member of the bar, we provide counsel in any related state bar matters.
If you have any reason to believe you may be under investigation for a financial crime, we invite you to call us at 336-725-8323 or e-mail our office to arrange a free consultation with an attorney from our white-collar crime practice.
