White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers

Fraud is considered a "white collar crime." These are non-violent offenses that can be prosecuted as either misdemeanors or felonies, depending on your circumstances.

Fraud crimes that are charged as misdemeanors include:

  • Deceptively obtaining a signature
  • Certain types of impersonation
  • First-time prescription drug fraud
  • False advertising

Fraud crimes charges as a felony include:

  • Credit card theft
  • Identity theft
  • Counterfeiting
  • Money laundering
  • Mortgage fraud

Felonies and misdemeanors result in different levels of consequences. Within the category of felony charges, there are certain "classifications," or levels. Often, when reviewing your case, the court will determine the classification of your charge based on the amount of money involved. Crimes involving values that are lower are classified as misdemeanors. Higher valued crimes, meaning anything valued at over $1,000, are classified as felonies.

A misdemeanor can be charged as a felony if this is a repeat conviction. If this is not your first time being charged with embezzling, stealing, or committing a fraud valued at under $1,000, you may be facing felony charges.
