White Collar Crimes
Based in Panama City, the Morris Law Firm provides effective, intelligent defense counsel to Florida individuals and businesses charged with white collar crimes, such as embezzlement, identity theft, and fraud. Attorney Dana Morris spent seven years prosecuting Medicaid fraud for the Florida Attorney General and has extensive experience handling these kinds of criminal cases.
Types of White Collar Criminal Offenses
Local and national regulatory agencies increasingly monitor financial transactions conducted by businesses and individuals alike, and prosecutors devote substantial resources to investigating alleged white collar criminal activity. Even unintentional discrepancies or record keeping oversights can lead to government investigation and white collar criminal charges.
Many different types of offenses fall under the umbrella of white collar crime, including but not limited to:
- Medicaid fraud
- Health care fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Social security fraud
- Welfare fraud
- Identity theft
- Check fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Mortgage and bank loan fraud
- Internet fraud
- Investor fraud
- Securities fraud and insider trading
- Stock broker violations, churning, and mutual fund fraud
- Business capital schemes and fraudulent shareholder offerings
- Ponzi schemes
- Tax evasion
If you have been charged with any type of white collar crime, it is imperative to talk to an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Conviction can result in serious consequences, and with many financial crimes, the prosecutor may also seek enhanced penalties, which can in turn prevent you from procuring employment in the future.
