Riverside White Collar Crime Lawyer
Get the Defense of a Former Prosecutor - (951) 682-5110
White-collar crimes typically refer to a type of crime committed by professionals using deception, as opposed to violent crimes that involve force. The Riverside white collar crime attorneys of Blumenthal & Moore have a long history of success defending clients in complicated state and federal white collar criminal cases.
Attorney Jeff G. Moore leads our white collar crime defense team. During his eight years as a Deputy District Attorney for Riverside County, he was assigned to the special prosecutions unit and focused on white collar crime. Our team also includes private investigator Dan Goldsmith, a certified fraud investigation specialist, and former police officer.
What Is a White Collar Crime?
The category of “white collar crimes” encompasses a wide range of nonviolent crimes which are financially motivated in nature and typically involve the use of deceit or theft for personal financial gain. Usually committed by persons of power or high-status in the context of their occupation, these types of crimes can involve a wide range of unethical acts such as misappropriating company funds, abusing access to privileged information, collusion, or engaging in some sort of wide-reaching scam. White collar crime charges can expose defendants to serious criminal consequences upon conviction and inflict permanent damage to their personal and professional reputation.
According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), white collar crimes cost the United States an estimated $300 billion dollars annually. In many cases, white-collar crimes can be difficult to prosecute due to the oftentimes sophisticated methods used by perpetrators to cover their tracks, with many charges being brought against defendants only after their actions are made public to a whistleblower.

White Collar Crimes Can Be State or Federal Crimes
Many white collar crimes are federal offenses which are prosecuted by agencies such as the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), Secret Service, Criminal Division of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Postal Service, and Customs. In the United States, punishments for white-collar crimes increased substantially in 2002 with the passing of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in the wake of the massive Enron scandal. Since white collar crimes can involve the violation of several federal and state laws and can carry a wide range of punishments, it is imperative that accused individuals retain the services of a skilled Riverside white collar crime attorney to minimize their chances of conviction.
If you have been charged with a white collar crime, contact Blumenthal & Moore immediately.
