West Palm Beach White Collar Crime Lawyer
Defense for Fraud & Other White Collar Crimes
Increasingly, federal and state officials are finding themselves investigating white collar crimes – types of alleged criminal acts committed every day in corporate offices by those who otherwise would not be suspected of engaging in criminal activity. The person accused of white collar crime sometimes is armed only with information which could be used to defraud or otherwise harm a company. If you have been accused of a white collar crime, seek the immediate assistance of a West Palm Beach white collar crime lawyer at Perlet, Shiner, Melchiorre & Walsh, P.A.

However, the increased government interest in prosecuting white collar crime becomes a double-edged sword: It’s designed to protect the innocent, but even innocents could be caught up in investigations they don’t understand, and face charges for crimes they didn’t commit. In South Florida, highly experienced federal white collar crime lawyers play an important role in assisting and defending the accused. Statistics on white collar crimes are elusive, as issues often are not detected for weeks, months or even years. Crimes often are not accurately measured or reported properly, and claims rapidly are increasing. For example, 7.9 million households in the U.S. have reported identity theft of one form or another since 2007.
