Panama City White Collar Crimes Lawyer

Defense Against White Collar Charges in FL

According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, our state is a haven for white collar/financial crime. In the Panama City area, white collar/financial crimes have not historically been a high priority for local law enforcement. However, with the increased presence of federal law enforcement and recent high-profile arrests in Panama City, white collar/financial crimes are now receiving increased levels of attention from state and federal law enforcement investigators and prosecutors.

If you are wanted for questioning or being investigated for a white collar/financial crime, it is imperative that you act swiftly to retain competent and experienced legal counsel to help you navigate the investigative process and criminal justice system. In many white collar crimes, it is important to understand the nature of the evidence and what the “the paper trail” will show to speaking with law enforcement. The actions taken by a suspect early-on in a white collar/financial criminal investigation and/or immediately after an arrest will many times determine the outcome of the case.

Consequences of a White Collar/Financial Crime Conviction

Depending on the circumstances of the alleged crime, white collar/financial crimes may either be prosecuted in state law or federal court. Many white collar/financial cases are treated as federal crimes given that they involve interstate commerce, which falls under the jurisdiction of the federal Department of Justice and its various law enforcement agencies. Whether the case goes to a state or federal court, you could be facing penalties including prison, steep fines and a lengthy probation. To make matters worse, a conviction would leave you with a criminal record which could have a devastating effect on your professional reputation and future opportunities.
