The term white-collar crime comprises a wide array of criminal acts that are committed in a business or professional setting for financial gain. Those accused of white-collar crimes face not only the pressures of criminal prosecution but also negative publicity and catastrophic damage to their finances. Penalties for white-collar crimes range from probation, fines, and criminal forfeiture, to lengthy prison sentences. At Michael A. Arbeit, P.C., we understand the severity of the consequences for our clients. We will work diligently to obtain the most favorable outcome possible including getting charges dismissed, negotiating a plea bargain, or obtaining a not guilty verdict after trial.
