Leesburg White-Collar Crime Defense Lawyers
Types of White Collar Crimes in Virginia
If you are accused of fraud, embezzlement, forgery, or any other white-collar crime, the potential penalties are based in part on the amount of money you are accused of taking. Virginia state courts and the federal court system have penalty enhancements based on the amount of money in question, the manner in which the charges are alleged, and the number of counts in the indictment. Challenging the amount in question can make the difference between probation and a jail sentence in a white-collar case.
We can fight for you if you were charged with:
- Bank fraud
- Securities fraud
- Real estate fraud
- Computer fraud
- Business fraud
- Construction fraud
- Uttering (offering someone a forged document, such as a bad check)

One of the latest trends in white-collar cases is to use co-conspirator statements as evidence against defendants charged with racketeering under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. Even if you played only a small or unwitting role in a criminal conspiracy, you could face charges based on dollar amounts you never saw and statements by people you do not know.
We often defend people who believe that they are innocent of the charges brought against them. For example, a person may make a promise to provide goods or services to someone else and accept payment for doing so, believing he/she would be able to carry out their promise. Then, circumstances beyond their control prevent them from doing so and they end up facing serious felony charges, even though they did not intend to commit a crime. In this fragile economy, it's important to separate what is criminal from what is unforeseen and uncontrollable.
