Case Spotlight: Tax Evasion and Fraud
If you are facing criminal tax fraud or evasion charges, contact the law firm today. Our attorneys are highly experienced in tax crimes and have worked with clients under investigation by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). We can help you protect yourself from further legal liabilities and ensure that your rights are protected.
Case Spotlight: Mail Fraud and Wire Fraud
Mail fraud and wire fraud are two common federal crimes. Federal prosecutors will aggressively charge individuals with these crimes. Mail fraud is the act of using the mail to commit fraud, while wire fraud is using electronic communication to commit a fraudulent act. Both charges carry significant penalties, including fines and up to 20 years in federal prison if convicted. If an individual is looking to resolve these charges without going to trial, they may want to seek a plea deal from the government. However, that is not always the best solution for many clients. At Oberheiden P.C., we have worked with many clients to successfully navigate these charges in the federal court system, often avoiding going to trial.
Case Spotlight: Financial Crimes
Federal financial crimes committed by corporations or individuals fall under the jurisdiction of federal law. Since these types of crimes often involve large sums of money and can provide an unfair advantage over competitors, they are taken very seriously by both federal prosecutors and federal judges. Federal financial crimes include many types of conduct, with victims ranging from publicly traded corporations to individual customers. Some examples of these crimes include:
- Bank fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Cryptocurrency fraud
- Money laundering
Case Spotlight: Conspiracy
Conspiracy statutes allow prosecutors to pursue charges against individuals if they conspire to commit a crime. If two or more individuals are involved in a scheme, both parties may be prosecuted and convicted under federal conspiracy laws. Our experienced federal defense law firm can help protect your rights and freedom by defending you against allegations of conspiracy.
Case Spotlight: Insurance Fraud
The federal government will aggressively prosecute individuals and businesses accused of insurance fraud. The government looks for signs of criminal wrongdoing in healthcare settings, but it also investigates allegations of fraud involving companies, accident victims, property owners, contractors, and other entities or individuals. Our federal defense law firm represents clients accused of insurance fraud, including everything from business insurance policy claims to property damage. We defend clients charged with bad faith claims, fee churning, asset diversion, and premium diversion.
Case Spotlight: Antitrust Violations
Federal investigations may target company executives and other professionals, leading to a broad range of criminal allegations. The Department of Justice’s Antitrust Division typically seeks civil remedies when companies engage in anti-competitive practices or price-fixing schemes. However, criminal charges are also on the table when there are accusations of collusion or conspiracy. Oberheiden P.C.’s attorneys have significant experience defending business entities and executives against these investigations and judicial proceedings.

Frequently Asked Questions About Federal Crimes
Can White-Collar Crimes Lead To Civil Penalties?
Yes. A criminal attorney will often focus solely on the criminal side of a case, but civil penalties can also result from criminal investigations. In some cases, law enforcement agencies may have enough evidence to pursue a criminal fraud case against you but not enough to secure a conviction in court. Our attorneys will defend you against all types of charges, whether in a criminal or civil court.
What Type of Penalties Are Possible with a White-Collar Conviction?
The penalties for white-collar crimes vary depending on the specific offense. Also, a person’s prior criminal record can come into play with a conviction. Some convictions can lead to severe penalties. It can also result in hefty fines, restitution payments to victims, and a probation requirement after being released from prison. These crimes are felonies, and a conviction will remain on your record for the remainder of your life.
