Federal White Collar Crimes Attorney in Texas

Dallas-Based Lawyer for Fraud, Embezzlement, & More

White collar crime tends to rise during times of economic hardship. Even professionals may find that they struggle to pay their bills and are not able to enjoy the lifestyle previous generations did. This can lead to an uptick in financial crimes. Unfortunately, many types of fraud and other white collar crimes are charged at the federal level. If the criminal scheme reaches across state lines or involves a federal institution like the IRS, it is likely that the alleged perpetrator will be prosecuted by the federal rather than state courts. Some individuals who are charged with white collar crimes simply made a mistake, such as misstating their income on a tax form or inadvertently using another person's credit card. Others may be unaware of the seriousness of their actions.

Federal White Collar Crime Charges Our Law Firm Takes on

Most white collar crimes are financially motivated. Common charges our law firm handles include:

  • Credit card fraud - Using another person's credit card without permission or using a fake credit card can result in charges.
  • Bank fraud - As banks are generally backed by the federal government, fraud against a bank is likely to be treated as a federal crime.
  • Tax fraud - Tax evasion is a common, but serious, federal offense if the fraud involves federal tax liabilities.
  • Embezzlement - Funneling money that belongs to a company or charitable organization into your own pocket can result in federal prosecution, especially if the company or organization does business across state lines.
  • Securities fraud - Fraud involving the national stock market can seriously harm any good-faith investors involved and the national economy.
  • Cryptocurrency fraud - Virtual currency has become a lasting part of the national economy, and updated laws now allow cryptocurrency fraud to be prosecuted federally.
  • Identity theft - Stealing another person's personal identifying information in order to obtain some benefit is a serious form of fraud.
  • Money laundering - The act of making money obtained through illegal activity appear legitimate can result in federal charges, especially in cases involving drug trafficking.
  • Mortgage fraud - Mortgage lenders are often national or federally-backed institutions, so fraud against them may be addressed in federal court.
  • Insurance fraud - Fraud committed against an insurance company is likely to be handled federally, as most providers are national organizations.
  • Wire fraud - When any form of electronic communication is used to further a criminal scheme, wire fraud charges can be levied.
  • PPP loan fraud - There has been considerable confusion regarding the acceptable use of Paycheck Protection Program loans, leading many to face criminal charges.
  • Computer and internet crimes - A large portion of crime is now conducted online. While you may feel anonymous behind a computer screen, the FBI can often still identify computer users and prosecute them for federal offenses.
  • Mail fraud - Using the U.S. Postal Service to further a criminal fraud scheme is a federal crime.

If you have been charged with any federal white collar offense, it is critical that you secure legal counsel immediately. The penalties for these crimes can be severe, with some offenses carrying several decades in prison.
