Detroit, Michigan Federal Crimes Lawyer

White collar crime typically refers to a type of illegal conduct related to business ventures, entrepreneurs, public officials and professionals, involving fraud, as opposed to street crimes, which tend to involve force or violence. Because of the complex nature of the activities usually related to such cases, white collar defendants often learn that they are under investigation before charges are brought.Prior to criminal charges, search warrants are often executed, regulatory inspections conducted, reimbursements by insurance companies or Medicare withheld, word spreads of grand jury probes, requests from investigators or police for interviews of the provider or those close to him or her. When such an investigation even might exist, the target is sometimes given an "opportunity" to speak with the investigating agent, but what he needs to do…right away…is to retain an excellent criminal fraud attorney. In order to preserve your rights and have a reasonable chance for a good defense, it is imperative that you retain counsel immediately upon learning -- or even suspecting -- that you may be under investigation for any type of white collar crime.
