Florida Criminal Defense Attorney Handles White Collar Crime Charges

Experienced lawyer represents clients in the West Palm Beach area charged with financial crimes

While white collar crimes are considered nonviolent, they are nonetheless serious offenses, carrying penalties that may include considerable prison time. If you have been arrested for tax fraud, money laundering, embezzlement or any other white collar crime, it's important to realize your future is on the line. Even acquittals can have a devastating impact on your finances, your business and reputation. At Law Office of Scott E. Reiter, P.A., I represent clients in the West Palm Beach area and throughout Florida facing allegations involving financial fraud. I understand the seriousness of the charge you face and will provide a defense that protects your rights and seeks the most favorable result under the facts of your case.

Florida attorney advocates for clients facing a range of financial crime charges

"White collar crime" is an umbrella term used for crimes involving deception committed solely for financial gain, so defendants are often people in business or government charged with misusing funds entrusted to them. While some of these crimes can be charged at the state level, most are federal crimes, prosecuted in a federal court system that has powerful resources at its disposal. That's why it's essential to seek representation from an attorney who has successfully defended clients on federal criminal charges.

My background enables me to effectively challenge prosecutors in providing a defense to clients charged with white collar crimes that include:

  • All forms of fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Bribery and extortion
  • Money laundering
  • Forgery
  • Antitrust violations
  • Tax evasion
  • Corporate espionage
  • Computer hacking
  • Insider trading
  • Racketeering and RICO cases
  • Counterfeiting

Whether you have been charged or are currently being investigated, it's important to seek skilled representation immediately. The earlier I can begin to develop your defense, the better your chance of obtaining a favorable outcome, whether that's an acquittal, reduced sentence or plea agreement.

Knowledgeable counsel seeks to limit your liability

An effective white collar crime defense can begin even before criminal charges are brought. Because these cases require in-depth investigations into complex tax and financial records, clients may find out that they are under investigation before being charged. If you have any suspicion that a case is being assembled against you, it's essential to seek the help of an experienced white collar defense firm right away. Law Office of Scott E. Reiter, P.A. may be able to limit your liability by preventing the government from bringing an indictment, protecting you from public accusations that can derail your business and personal life. Once charges are filed, however, I will get to work immediately to challenge the allegations and protect your rights. I understand that financial mistakes can lead to serious penalties and offer skilled representation to avoid heavy fines, significant restitution and the potential of a prison sentence.
