White Collar Crimes Losing Your Freedom Is Not an Option

White Collar Crime Attorney in Tucson

Experienced Defense Against White Collar Crimes in Arizona

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 over 40 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.

Understanding Federal and Arizona State Laws

Title 13 of the Arizona Revised Statutes (A.R.S.) contains the state’s criminal codes governing theft, forgery, credit card fraud, business and commercial fraud, embezzlement, bribery and other white collar crimes. State investigations may involve the Arizona Attorney General’s office, the state’s law enforcement agencies and the local city or county law enforcement agencies. Federal crimes are investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and other federal law enforcement agencies, and are governed by a long list of statutes, including:

  • The Sherman Act
  • The Counterfeit Access Device and Computer Fraud and Abuse Law
  • The Computer Abuse Amendments Act of 1984
  • The Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986
  • The False Claims Act
  • The Mail Fraud Statute
