Pasadena White Collar Crime Attorney

Protect Your Rights with The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller

"White collar crimes" is a general term to describe non-violent, financially-concerned crimes that typically involve a form of fraud. These offenses commonly occur in a business or corporate setting (hence "white collar") and can often result in serious, even life-altering penalties.

Being arrested for a crime can be a devastating event in your life. It can disrupt both your personal and professional career. Forfeiture laws can also put an immediate stranglehold on your life, allowing investigating agencies to seize your assets. That is why you need to immediately contact a white collar crime defense attorney who knows how to handle white collar crime cases and investigations. The Law Offices of Paul S. Geller can help you assess your options and thoroughly challenge the state's allegations against you.

Place your case in the hands of a former prosecutor. Call our skilled Pasadena white collar crime lawyer at (626) 784-4143 today.

What Crimes Are Considered "White Collar?"

There is no "white collar" criminal statute. Instead, the state of California has in place a complex series of fraud and theft laws meant to address these financial crimes. Because these crimes often deal with large sums of money, they are typically charged as felony offenses.

Theft and white collar crimes include crimes such as:

  • Embezzlement
  • Fraud
  • Burglary
  • Forgery
  • Insufficient funds
  • Uttering a false or forged instrument
  • Securities fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Insurance fraud
  • Medi-Cal fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Insider trading
  • Obstruction of justice
  • Conspiracy
  • Financial crimes
  • Petty theft
  • Grand theft
  • Identity theft
  • Possession of fraudulent access cards
  • Computer crimes

Capable Counsel for Complex Cases

For many people, these crimes involve two separate problems: one, resolving your criminal case, and two, preserving your professional integrity. It is very important to begin working quickly on these cases in order to negotiate effectively with law enforcement and prosecutors. Often times, law enforcement officers are less savvy and educated about business transactions and dealings than those with actual business backgrounds and degrees, which leads to premature requests for criminal charges.

This is where Mr. Geller’s business background can play a key role. As a business attorney in Pasadena, we have inside knowledge and experience with check cashing procedures, banking procedures, and the like. Where appropriate, we use forensic accountants to show a proper trail of money which will cease investigations and/or get charges dismissed. Complex business transactions require experienced, business educated individuals. We have handled many cases where initially the charges and investigation look devastating, but because of our involvement, the disruption to our client’s personal and professional life has been minimal.

We have the insight and resources to make a compelling case on your behalf. Contact us today for a free consultation to learn more.
