OUR WHITE COLLAR LAWYERS DEFEND INDIVIDUALS AND BUSINESSES FACING FEDERAL AND STATE COURT CHARGES IN UTAH, NEVADA, IDAHO AND WYOMING

What are White Collar Crimes?

White collar crimes refer to a class of financial crimes committed by professionals, business people, public officials, and others that involve theft, fraud (including wire fraud and mortgage fraud), money laundering, stock manipulation, and similar matters.

Most white collar crimes involve some form of theft by fraudulent representation for obtaining money under misleading circumstances.  These cases are notoriously complex; particularly as it is not always clear whether a crime, in fact, was committed.

PROVIDING A VIGOROUS REPRESENTATION AND DEFENSE OF OUR CLIENTS

Our white collar criminal defense lawyers provide a vigorous defense of individuals and companies facing criminal proceedings in federal and state courts.  We recognize what is at stake.

We often work proactively with prosecutorial and investigative agencies to prevent criminal charges from being filed against our clients in the first place – our constant goal is to shield our clients, whenever possible, from significant financial damages, devastation of their professional reputations, and ruin of their personal lives.

When charges are filed, we are well-prepared to provide a knowledgeable and vigorous courtroom defense.  When the freedom of our clients is at stake, we are tenacious in challenging the prosecution, their theories of the case, and their evidence – at every point – in seeking the best outcome for our clients.  From our Salt Lake City and St. George offices, we provide representation for clients charged with crimes throughout Utah, Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, and other states.
