White Collar Crimes

Call The Orange County Criminal Defense Firm

White collar crimes are defined as illegal acts that are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and which are not dependent upon the application or threat of physical force or violence. These types of crimes are committed by individuals and organization in order to obtain money, property or services, or to avoid the payment or loss of money and services.

While being accused of a white collar crime may seem harmless, a conviction for this type of criminal activity can prove to be as severe as a violent crime conviction. At the Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman, we provide our clients with 20 years of criminal defense experience, particularly in the area of white collar crimes, with the goal of obtaining a resolution that preserves our client's professional position and standard of living, while also avoiding a lengthy incarceration. Your livelihood and ability to support your family may be at stake and you cannot afford any delay in retaining experienced legal representation.

Don't make the mistake of speaking with investigators without having your lawyer by your side to represent you. If you do, you run the risk of making self-incriminating statements that would cost you the opportunity of avoiding a conviction.

Preventing a Conviction in Orange County, CA

While many criminal defense attorneys may boast about their experience in defending clients charged with white collar crimes, very few of them make use of the alternatives to sentencing that are available. Our firm has been successful at helping clients obtain verdicts that involve going to a restitution center instead of spending time in jail or state prison. These restitution centers are used to retrain those convicted of white collar crimes and make restitution for the offense committed. Individuals at these restitution centers earn a paycheck which is divided three ways to cover restitution center expenses, repayment to the victim, and a bank account set up for the offender following release.
