What is white collar crime?
Generally speaking, white collar crimes are criminal offenses which are accomplished through means of deception rather than the use of force or threat of violence. Many of the white collar criminal offenses commonly charged are based off of complex state or federal laws found in lengthy, complicated and highly technical statutes. Even legal experts often disagree on whether a particular action constitutes lawful activity or a technical violation of some arcane federal statute. Our office is not afraid to go up against the most powerful government agencies and federal prosecutors in defense of our clients’ rights.

White collar cases may involve lengthy investigations
In many white collar criminal prosecutions, before an arrest is ever made, the individual has been targeted for investigation for a lengthy period. The government may spend months or years building a case before charges are filed. It is therefore vital to contact an attorney as soon as you are arrested or made aware that you are under suspicion. Jeffrey S. Weiner works swiftly to get to the bottom of the case and works with prosecutors to prevent charges from being filed, influence what charges are filed or how an arrest is made, or negotiate a grant of immunity. Don’t try talking to investigators on your own. Federal law makes it a crime to lie to a government official, and law enforcement officers are experts at eliciting even innocent contradictory statements that they then use as leverage to force your cooperation. If you are approached for an interview or questioning, contact an experienced Miami white collar criminal defense attorney before you agree to speak with law enforcement.
