Our Senior-Level Law Firm Can Handle All Types of White-Collar Criminal Accusations

No matter the white-collar criminal offense, our attorneys are qualified to handle it. Our attorneys and consultants have handled numerous cases involving the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Drug Enforcement Administration, Securities and Exchange Commission, and other federal agencies. Our legal team has also successfully represented clients in many federal grand jury proceedings, appeals, and trials.

These are some of the accusations our federal white-collar lawyers can defend you against:

Antitrust Violations

Federal antitrust investigations targeting company executives and other insiders can lead to a wide range of allegations. Business owners, executives, and other individuals can be accused of violating antitrust laws. Many cases are handled civilly, but federal authorities can also pursue criminal charges if they find that individuals or businesses have engaged in deliberate anti-competitive practices, such as price-fixing. Individuals facing both civil and criminal charges may need a defense team to fight against both accusations. We can help you defend yourself against civil or criminal allegations.

Computer Fraud

The federal computer fraud statute is a broad-based law used to prosecute many offenses involving computers. Federal prosecutors can apply it to computer-specific crimes, such as malicious data breaches, intellectual property theft, financial fraud, and other offenses committed using computers.

Conspiracy

Prosecutors can use the federal conspiracy statute to pursue charges in white-collar crime cases. This statute has been interpreted by courts to apply in situations where two or more individuals conspire to commit a white-collar offense. Even if the individuals do not proceed with committing the crimes, they can be prosecuted and convicted of a federal offense. A single conviction carries substantial fines and years of incarceration in federal prison. With the risk of facing conspiracy charges, individuals should consider their defense strategies. At Oberheiden P.C., we have defended hundreds of clients against allegations of conspiracy.

Financial Crimes

Financial crimes can involve a variety of types of conduct and can target individuals or large corporations. Financial crimes violate federal law if they provide unfair competitive advantages. A legal team must tailor a defense strategy to the specific charge made against you and the circumstances surrounding your case. Oberheiden P.C. is ready to build an effective defense against these charges. Many financial crimes can involve accusations of:

  • Bribery
  • Bank Fraud
  • Credit Card Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Forgery
  • Money Laundering
  • Mortgage Fraud

Intellectual Property Crimes

Intellectual property (IP) infringement claims are often civil disputes between private parties, and they can involve accusations of misappropriating trademarks, copyrights, and patents. While many of these accusations are handled in the civil courtroom, they can also lead to prosecution by the Department of Justice. Intellectual property crimes include corporate espionage, hacking, and other illegal means used to gain access to protected data. Our senior-level attorneys have defended alleged individuals against civil litigation and related criminal law matters at the federal level.

Insurance Fraud

Insurance fraud is a type of white-collar crime committed by individuals, businesses, property owners, accident victims, and contractors. We can represent you in these matters if you’ve been accused of insurance fraud. At Oberheiden P.C., our attorneys have handled many of these cases involving property damage claims and business interruption policy fraud. Insurance companies can also be accused of insurance fraud. We have brought premium diversion, fee churning, and claim denial cases to a successful outcome for our clients.

Frequently Asked Questions about White-Collar Federal Criminal Defense in West Palm Beach

What Is At Stake With These Cases?

 

When facing federal charges, it’s crucial to have a strong federal defense law firm on your side. Every federal crime carries a range of sentencing options based on the individual’s past criminal record and the specific nature of the offense. With a single conviction, it will remain on your record forever, which can prevent you from obtaining a license or holding certain jobs. Remember that a federal charge does not automatically mean you will be convicted. The federal government must prove its case against you beyond a reasonable doubt. You need an experienced law firm on your side. When you reach out to Oberheiden P.C., our attorneys will begin building your defense strategy immediately.

What Is a Grand Jury Subpoena?

 

A grand jury subpoena is an order from a court that compels you to testify before a grand jury in a criminal investigation. The U.S. Attorney’s Office typically issues grand jury subpoenas, and you are required to testify or provide evidence. Most of the time, the federal government believes you have information about the specific crime under investigation. When you are required to testify, you are not entitled to have an attorney present during your testimony. If you receive a grand jury subpoena, you need to contact our team of accomplished federal criminal defense attorneys immediately.

How Can a Federal Defense Attorney Help My Case?

 

Federal investigations are more complex than those in state court. Prosecutors take months to build a case before convening a grand jury. Contact an attorney if you discover that the federal government is investigating you. A highly skilled federal criminal defense attorney can identify weaknesses in the government’s case and negotiate with prosecutors on your behalf. Even if we cannot dismiss charges, our attorney may present a compelling case of mitigation at sentencing. We will work to help lessen the impacts of these allegations. Make sure to contact the law firm of Oberheiden P.C.

Is Taking a Plea Deal a Good Option?

 

Plea agreements are common in federal criminal cases. However, you will want to consult with a federal criminal defense attorney before accepting any offers from the federal government. In some situations, you may be better off taking your chances at trial. Our legal team will investigate the case and identify any potential weaknesses. Depending on the specifics of your case, you may have an excellent chance of beating the charge. Sometimes, clients want to avoid taking a chance at trial and would rather settle. We can negotiate with federal prosecutors after providing you with an extensive case work-up. Before you decide, we will present you with all the facts so that you can proceed with the best possible option. Oberheiden P.C. will always go that extra step for our clients.

What Type of Law Firm Should I Hire?

 

If you are facing federal criminal charges, you want to hire a law firm with years of experience handling these cases. The federal government will use its most experienced prosecutors to ensure a conviction. For that reason, you need a reputable and skilled law firm. Remember, not all experience is equal. You should look for an attorney who has successfully handled similar cases in the past. Always ask about their track record when seeking a federal criminal defense law firm. At Oberheiden P.C., our senior-level attorneys, investigators, and trial consultants have the experience to defend you from these serious charges and accusations.
