White Collar Crimes
In the wake of the financial crisis, federal agencies and law enforcement are utilizing increasingly sophisticated techniques to identify white collar crime. Due to lengthy investigations, individuals accused of fraud, embezzlement and other white collar crimes are frequently charged with multiple offenses and face substantial fines and lengthy prison terms if convicted.

Defending Against Embezzlement, Fraud and Other White Collar Offenses
White collar defense is different from other areas of criminal defense because it frequently involves extensive financial records. Our attorneys are effective because we know how to analyze the evidence. We utilize a team of respected experts, including forensic accountants and computer specialists to construct a robust defense.
The evidence against you may not always be on paper. Federal authorities are increasingly using wiretaps and other methods of electronic surveillance to build cases against people. Our attorneys know what to look for to effectively challenge the use of evidence against you. Whenever possible we will try to have the evidence against you either thrown out or discredited.
At Knight & Cerritelli, LLC, we provide vigorous defense to individuals charged with the following white collar crimes:
- Credit card fraud
- Health care fraud
- False Claims Act
- Corporate and accounting fraud
- Money laundering
- Tax fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Mail and wire fraud
- Securities fraud
- Bank fraud
- Anti-trust violations
- Bribery and extortion
- Foreign Corrupt Practices Act
- Computer crime
Most white collar crime involves theft in one format or another. Many companies are often embarrassed to report them and will do what they can to avoid exposure. When we are retained before charges have been filed, we may be able to work with companies and their board of directors to negotiate a settlement without criminal charges.
