White Collar Crime Attorney in Tucson
Tucson Federal Defense Attorneys Protecting Your Rights
White collar crimes are nonviolent crimes committed for financial gain. The reference to “white collar” describes the typical defendant — usually a professional, often working in the financial field or in real estate, with access to the private financial information of another individual or company.
Establishing a successful defense to a charge involving a white collar crime generally requires extensive knowledge of financial practices, accounting, securities law and technology. With more than 80 years of combined experience, our lawyers at Nesci & St. Louis defend you in the most challenging white collar charges.
If you suspect that you are being investigated for a white collar crime, please contact us immediately. We may be able to keep the prosecution from filing embarrassing charges against you by intervening in the early stages of an investigation. We may also be able to prevent the prosecution from gaining access to evidence that you have a legal right to withhold.
