White Collar Criminal Defense Attorney
White collar crimes are paperwork cases. Bank records, business records, and other documents are relied upon by the Government to build a case against you. The problem is that a case can look one way on paper but another way in real life.
A white collar case generally carries a lower prison sentence than a violent crime, but it is no less serious in terms of its consequences. Especially when I represent a professional, such as a doctor, lawyer, or business owner, I am keenly aware of the career consequences of any criminal conviction.
I am criminal defense attorney Keith Williams. I have dedicated my Greenville law practice to defending people charged with criminal charges in eastern North Carolina, including white collar crimes such as:
- Wire Fraud
- Bank Fraud
- Tax Crimes
- Credit card fraud
- Financial fraud
- Kickback investigations
- Making false claims to the government (under the False Claims Act)
- Money laundering
- Medicare and other types of health care fraud
- Honest services cases
White collar cases are almost always about money. The larger the amount, the more likely the case will be prosecuted in federal court. I am the only criminal defense lawyer in the Greenville area who is board-certified in both federal and state criminal law.
Defenses in White Collar Criminal Cases
Just as some evidence in a white collar crime case can make you look guilty, other evidence can support a lack of criminal intent. Police may stop their investigation as soon as they find information that looks incriminating. My goal is to find what the Government missed. It's not unusual for a white collar crime case to involve thousands of records. As your lawyer, I will sift through all of it in search of evidence that shows what you did was not criminal.
White collar criminal cases often involve someone who has never been in trouble with the law before. For the accused, the consequences can be devastating. It can affect your freedom, your reputation, your property, and your ability to earn a living. I understand the seriousness of these charges and will defend you aggressively.
