When You Are Charged With A White Collar Crime

Serving Reading And Communities In Chester County, In Delaware County And Throughout Pennsylvania

For professionals, executives and public figures, a clean reputation is part of the job requirement. Coming under investigation for fraud or other criminal activities under Pennsylvania law or the federal Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) places your freedom and your career in serious jeopardy. Press leaks about grand jury investigations, FBI questioning or association with convicted criminals can mean you will be found guilty in the court of public opinion, despite the evidence.
