White Collar Defense

White Collar Defense

When a financial or business event or loss occurs, authorities are increasingly unwilling to leave the matter to the civil justice system. In 1984, the U.S. Congress passed the Sentencing Reform Act, which set criminal penalties for executives and other “white collar” workers involved in business losses that take into account the aggregate loss of those involved in the litigation. This means that office workers suspected of causing high losses could multi-million dollar fines and the loss of their liberty in prison. These high stakes require experienced lawyers. At Drumheller, Hollingsworth & Monthy, LLP, our experienced white collar criminal defense lawyers utilize industry knowledge and trial-tested tactics to defend those accused of these serious crimes.

Why You Need A White Collar Criminal Defense Attorney

White collar crimes may be non-violent, but they usually include large sums of money. Civil defense attorneys are not equipped with the unique laws and procedures involved with a white collar defense case, and most criminal defense attorneys are not equipped to handle these types of claims because they often involve complex financial regulations, complicated investigations, vast amounts of data and documents, and tangled webs of relationships.
