White Collar Crimes

White Collar Crimes

White collar crime investigations can be lengthy. Often those under investigation know well in advance of any charges being filed. If you have been charged with a crime or have been advised that you are under investigation, you need to take steps to ensure that your rights are fully protected.

Typical white collar crimes in Richmond and throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia include:

  • Securities fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Computer hacking
  • Computer fraud
  • Theft of government property by fraud or deception

In these cases J. Thompson Cravens is our lead white collar crimes attorney. He has represented bankers, brokers and numerous others in the banking and securities industry, including accountants, IT personnel and security team members. His wealth of criminal experience as a state, military and federal prosecutor, coupled with 24 years of experience defending cases in state, federal and military courts means your defense will have incredible depth of knowledge and effective legal advice and guidance.

If you have been arrested, you are not required to cooperate with investigators. Further, it is exceptionally important that you do not waive any rights until you have met with counsel.

Remember in interrogations by police, they do not have to be truthful. They are legally allowed to present false evidence as part of an interrogation. Do not attempt to strike a deal without counsel or you may have no deal at all.

If you have been charged with or even simply believe that you are under investigation for a white collar crime, you need to take a proactive stance regarding the defense of your rights. Our experienced attorneys can help ensure that your rights are protected.
