The Sooner Your Defense Attorney Comes On Board, The More Options You May Have For A Favorable Outcome
Early legal representation in any criminal case is vital, but this may be especially so in a white collar crime case. Even if the alleged wrongdoing is at the rumor stage and you have not received any official notice or questioning by investigators, now is the time to talk to an attorney. The alleged victims of the crime often simply want their money back when they believe someone has stolen from them. A restitution deal early in a case may prevent criminal charges from being filed at all.
If your name is associated with a white collar crime investigation or arrests in any way, you should work closely with a lawyer. Get an attorney on your side, put heads together to devise an effective strategy, and get started on your own defense.
