White Collar Crimes
Fullerton White Collar Crimes Defense Lawyer
White collar crimes are defined as illegal acts that are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust and that are not dependent upon the application or threat of physical force or violence. Since there is no violence or threat involved, white collar crimes are typically associated with corporate leaders, business owners, and companies themselves. This is where the name “white collar crime” originates, as it conjures visions of someone in a white button-up shirt.
People or organizations charged for white collar crimes are accused of using deceit to:
- Gain finances
- Steal or control services
- Prevent the loss of finances
- Manipulate sensitive or private data
While being accused of a white collar crime may seem harmless, a conviction for this type of criminal charge can prove to be as severe as a violent crime conviction. The consequences of a white collar crime violation can actually be even worse since a business owner’s actions can reflect on their business. That is to say, if you own a business and you are convicted of a white collar crime, then your company’s reputation could sink alongside your own.

Preventing a White Collar Crimes Conviction
Attorney Jacqueline Goodman has been successful at helping clients obtain positive verdicts that involve going to a restitution center instead of spending time in jail or state prison. At such a restitution center, white collar crime offenders earn a paycheck that is used to repay any victims of their fraud, fund the center for the future, and create a new bank account that the offender can access once their sentencing requirements end. In other instances, she has been able to negotiate plea deals that shielded her client’s reputation and that of their associated businesses. The bottom line is she is always thinking of creative and better ways to take care of her clients, which even means representing them in court when necessary.
