White Collar Crimes

Fraud And White Collar Crimes

Many people who are charged with white collar crimes never had the intention of doing anything illegal. In most cases, the criminal charges are the result of something that went wrong along the way.

I am Barry M. Lewis, a Chicago criminal defense lawyer. I have successfully defended people accused of white collar crimes in both state and federal courts. If you are contacted by police or any government investigator concerning a crime, politely decline to answer any questions and contact me for a free initial telephone consultation.

Defending Your Reputation And Your Future

I defend people charged with all types of white collar crimes, including:

  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Securities fraud
  • Computer crimes such as identity theft
  • Theft of trade secrets

There are often strong defenses to white collar crimes. Sometimes a company is embarrassed by missing money and poor accounting records, and needs a fall person. When a crime is committed electronically, a strong defense may be the fact that multiple persons had access to the computer system through the same connection or even the same computer.

The sooner you put your case in the hands of an experienced lawyer, the better off you will be. You should never try to explain your situation or answer questions without legal advice. You could end up giving investigators the evidence they need to charge you with a crime.
