White Collar Crime

Littleton Defense Lawyers

White collar crime stands alone in the minds of many, in relation to other crimes. Violators of white collar crime laws are rarely people who have chosen a life of crime. Often, they have not chosen to commit a crime at all.

White collar crimes occur almost exclusively in business environments, in the course of legal and even laudable business endeavors. As opportunities for new businesses present themselves or a business begins to fail, the temptation for "creative accounting" and other legal maneuvering and "bending" can be strong. Mistakes can be made.
