Yesterday the Justice Department announced their focus is going to turn to white-collar crime.
Many people who are caught in this web will make the mistake of hiring traditional criminal defense lawyers who have minimal experience in white-collar issues. White collar cases are totally different than other crimes: in theft, violence and drug cases it is undisputed that a crime has been committed and the question is who did it. In white-collar cases, everyone knows who did it and the question is whether a crime has been committed. Knowledge of accounting, taxation and other business issues is vital in addition to experience in federal courts.
