4 Ways to Protect Your Rights When Facing a White Collar Crime

Most criminal cases require a thorough investigation, and white collar crimes are no exception. They typically demand an extensive analysis of various documents and defense strategies to receive a favorable outcome. If you are facing a white collar crime charge, the following steps may increase your chances of a successful legal case. 

Contact an Experienced Defense Attorney

Hiring a highly-qualified white collar criminal defense lawyer is essential for your case. A lot of time, energy, resources, and communication goes into building a solid defense, and without a lawyer, your rights, assets, and future may be on the line. At the Aron Law Firm, we will be able to act on your behalf and thoroughly investigate and gather the information necessary to prevent you from suffering severe consequences.

Understand Your Charges

White-collar crimes are multifaceted charges. We will be able to help you fully understand the nature of your charges and provide answers to any questions you may have about your case. Without a thorough grasp of your situation, you may miss essential information and evidence. 

Collect Relevant Documents and Transactions

By gathering documents and copies of transactions, you will have a clear picture of the situation and evidence rebutting the charges against you. At the Aron Law Firm, we have the tools and knowledge to understand and collect any required documents for your case. We may also analyze the information for any potential legal issues or incriminating evidence. 

Build a Comprehensive Defense Strategy

You do not want to enter the courtroom like a bull in a china shop. Developing a thorough, meticulous, and comprehensive defense strategy is vital for you to receive the best possible outcome. Some examples of beneficial defense strategies include the following:

  • Lack of intent: If the prosecution cannot prove you aimed to commit the criminal offense, you may be able to show your actions were unintentional or involuntary. 
  • Duress: A defense for white collar crimes may be duress or the existence of pressure and threat. If someone forced or coerced you into committing the crime, you may be able to claim duress.
  • Entrapment: Entrapment refers to when a government official tempts you to commit a criminal offense you would not perform on your own. 

Your defense strategy will depend on your case’s specific circumstances. The Aron Law Firm has extensive experience handling various types of white collar criminal trials. We understand what it takes to build a successful and proactive defense. Before you speak with anyone else, contact our team for professional legal representation.
