    Criminal Law Legal Research

    • The sufficiency of an indictment
    • The legality and propriety of an arrest
    • The adequacy of a search warrant and the application of exceptions to the warrant requirement
    • The validity and admissibility of a confession
    • The scope of the right to counsel and what constitutes effective representation
    • The admissibility of evidence
    • The laws governing wiretaps and other interceptions of communications
    • The applicability of various defenses, such as insanity, entrapment, self-defense, and double jeopardy

    White Collar Crime

    Our attorneys have dealt with many cases involving White Collar Crimes, including, but not limited to, antitrust violations, embezzlement, mortgage fraud, money laundering, insurance fraud, environmental law violations, government fraud, mail fraud, tax evasion, financial fraud, and securities fraud. White Collar Crime cases can be quite complicated in nature, and involve a variety of federal and state laws, and possible sentences. Typically, the government will charge individuals with white collar crimes, but they also have the power to sanction corporations as well. Since white collar crimes have cost the U.S. government a significant amount of time and money, and they be very difficult to prosecute without substantial evidence, whistleblowers are increasingly used to help with these criminal law cases. If you are finding that you need additional assistance with your case, in the prosecution or the defense, our criminal law research attorneys can help.
