Are White Collar Criminal Offenses Minor?

At The Cochran Firm, our criminal defense lawyers understand the seriousness of any criminal charge. We don't take our clients' freedom lightly. And we know that a white collar charge is a serious matter.

The term "white collar crime" evokes images of well-heeled defendants receiving light sentences from sympathetic judges, assuming the state even deigns to pursue a charge. The reality, however, is that prosecutors are taking these charges more seriously than ever.

After the global financial crisis and resulting recession, those accused of white collar crimes are more loathed than ever. Prosecutors are not reluctant about pursuing cases against men and women they feel committed white collar crimes.

The Cochran Firm's criminal defense lawyers recognize this dynamic, and we fight accordingly. We will not let anyone violate your rights. And we will battle to protect your freedom, because we know that's what is at stake.

White collar crimes include such serious charges as:

  • Fraud
  • Racketeering
  • Embezzlement
This charges can carry jail sentences that can run for decades.


If you've been accused of a white collar crime and need an experienced criminal defense lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
