White Collar Crimes Lawyer in Indianapolis

White collar crimes charges are significantly different than other criminal charges. They are frequently prosecuted in federal courts which differs from state criminal courts in a number of respects. One difference between state and federal courts is the matter of the prosecutors. Federal prosecutors typically have very high conviction rates because they do not file charges unless they believe they have a strong case. This may be the result of months or even years of intensive investigation and evidence-gathering by such agencies as the FBI. Another significant difference lies in the sentencing structure. Conviction of a federal crime subjects you to federal sentencing guidelines, which often carry mandatory prison sentences.

  • “Gary has been my go-to defense for nearly 20yrs. His courtroom presence and professionalism are unmatched” - J.S.
  • “He has always been truthful, maintained integrity, and has gone above and beyond to make me feel that "everything is going to be ok!" If you find yourself in my position, save your time and energy and choose Gary Colasessano.” - Dana K.
  • “Nothing but the best from this guy. Truly a great attorney.” - Ryan P.

While white collar crimes are generally nonviolent, they are still considered to be very serious by both state and federal courts. This is especially true where multiple alleged victims and high dollar-amount operations are involved. As a result, you will need a criminal defense lawyer who is well-versed in white collar crime laws and potential defenses.

White Collar Crimes in Indiana

White collar crimes vary widely in scope and in the way they are committed. These are generally crimes committed for some type of financial gain or control through the use of deceit or misrepresentation. They are often committed by individuals working in positions where they have access to funds or financial information. Their alleged victims may be one, a few, or hundreds of individuals as well as their employers or governmental agencies against whom they commit various acts of fraud. 

Examples of white collar crimes can include but are not limited to:

  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Computer crimes
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Tax fraud
  • Criminal conspiracy
  • Bribery
  • Counterfeiting
  • Forgery
  • Identity theft
  • Insider trading
  • Extortion
  • Public Corruption
  • Investment scams, such as Ponzi schemes
  • Other types of fraud, related to mail, health care, securities, insurance, wire, banking, credit cards, internet, telemarketing, government agencies such as Medicare, Social Security, and more

These various types of white collar crimes and more are not covered under one law but many state and federal laws. Thus, it is vital that you turn to an attorney who understands the varied and complex statutes and their potential penalties that fall under the overall label of “white collar crime.” You will also want to ensure you are represented by an attorney who knows how to defend against aggressive federal prosecutors who may have been assisted by federal agencies from the FBI to the IRS, Department of Justice (DOJ), the SEC, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), and more.
