Minnesota White Collar Crime Attorney

HomePractice AreasWhite Collar Crime

There has been a large increase in the prosecution of “white collar crimes” in the past ten years. Society, in general, and courts, specifically, have recognized the unfairness of prosecuting people for stealing money with a gun but ignoring people who steal money with a pen or computer. As such, many prosecution offices such as the Hennepin County Attorneys’ Office and the local federal U.S Attorneys Office now have attorneys who specialize in prosecuting white collar cases. Many times these prosecutors are assisted by agents with a background in accounting, taxes or computers.

There is a wide range of charges which can issue for white collar cases but many times the charges include offenses of internal business theft, embezzlement or mortgage fraud. Frequently white collar cases are prosecuted in federal court versus state court (see our website’s discussion of Federal Law). White collar cases typically include evidence involving large amounts of documentation to track financial, real estate or business transactions over a period of time. Law enforcement may seek search warrants to obtain those records from banks, businesses and, on occasion, even law firms.

If you are the focus of a white collar investigation, it is important to remain silent until after you have talked with your attorney. Tina Appleby, Eric Nelson and Marsh Halberg are all very experienced in handling white collar cases in both State and Federal courts.
