Choosing to hire a white collar crime defense attorney will not only be beneficial to your case but it will also ease some of the unavoidable stress during this difficult time.

  • Bribery is the act of offering, or promising, an individual or a corporation something such as money, goods, or a favor with the intent to influence an action or a decision.
  • Counterfeiting is selling a fake item and claiming that it is an original.
  • Embezzlement occurs with the misuse of funds or property that one was entrusted with.
  • Scheming can occur in many different forms including currency, environmental, investment, airport scheming, auto repair, coupon redemption, home improvement, and many more.

If you have been charged or suspect you are going to be charged with any of these offenses, contact a Clearwater lawyer right away. When you hire a professional, they will:

  • Work to negotiate bail or bond options to work towards your benefit
  • Interview any witnesses to help build your case
