How Bad is White Collar Crime in America?

With all of the movies and television shows dedicated to white collar crime, it makes sense that it’s a subject that many people are interested in. From the appropriately named White Collar which we’ve discussed on our blog previously which is about an art thief who works with the Federal Bureau of Investigation to Catch Me If You Can which also features a likeable thief who is caught by the FBI and subsequently ends up working with them, there is no shortage of media on the subject of white collar crime.

As a matter of fact, you can take a look at articles out there like this one from The Clever that highlights fifteen different white collar crimes that shocked the world. You might notice while perusing their list that a handful of the people mentioned served as inspiration for various movies such as Wall Street, The Wolf of Wall Street, and others.

What Does That Mean?

Well, Harvard Business Review sums it all up quite nicely:

“Our attitude toward white-collar crime is a little different [than it is towards violent crime]. On the one hand, it fascinates us: Why do well-paid professionals commit it—on their own, with colleagues, or as part of an organization-wide collaboration? On the other hand, it bores us: Complicated financial schemes are difficult to understand, and the perpetrators and victims are often unclear. Who suffers when a company shifts numbers around on a spreadsheet? Who’s to blame when it has thousands of employees and layers of bureaucracy?”

In other words, white collar crime is often something that the public doesn’t have a huge understanding of when it is reported in the media. Take for example the infamous story about what has been going on with Wells Fargo. It seems that every day leads to a new revelation about what has allegedly been going on and it’s all a little difficult to understand. At the end of the day, people are also fascinated by what’s going on. How could a company that’s been around for so long employ tactics that dupe regular people out of their hard-earned money?

We’re Drawn to Movies

What is it about real life situations that cause us to get angry and upset? Similarly, what is it about the movies and television shows that we watch that causes us to identify with and even root for the people that we know are committing crimes? In the case of the former, perhaps it’s because all we see is corporate greed running rampant in an attempt to make as much money as possible by any means necessary. For the latter, perhaps we enjoy these fictionalized stories because we know that they aren’t real and because we can see that even though these thieves are swindling others, they have hearts of gold. Perhaps it’s because we sometimes see these people as modern day Robin Hoods.

Back to the Question at Hand

So how bad is white collar crime in America? The answer seems to be that it’s always been around, but the ease of getting our news delivered to us means that we simply hear about it more often and that the scale has only grown over time. Take the information from the previously mentioned article in The Clever again. The article mentions a scam by Albert H. Wiggin that goes all the way back to the early 1900s. In this story, Wiggin scammed people out of nearly $4 million during the Great Depression.

Or take the infamous Charles Ponzi, for example. The Ponzi Scheme (also commonly referred to as a pyramid scheme) has been around since the 1920s. Ponzi himself made $20 million for himself, which is no small amount of money nowadays, but is an unimaginable amount for a person to have had nearly 100 years ago.

Are You In Need of a White Collar Lawyer?

Being accused of having committed a white collar crime–such as tax fraud, bank fraud, or healthcare fraud–can be incredibly scary. The previously referenced piece from Harvard Business Review also notes that “given that much of [white collar crime] is committed without criminal intent…the best solution is for executives to surround themselves with people who aren’t afraid to question their decisions.”

While this move may work for executives, we would also advise that individuals should retain the services of an experienced lawyer as early on as possible. No matter what you’re up against, our team is here to help unravel the facts in your case and help to present you with a defense that works for you. Our goal is to help you secure a positive resolution for your situation and we’ll go above and beyond to work hard for you.

Have You Been Falsely Accused of Tax Fraud?

There’s not much that’s more alarming than being accused of a crime you didn’t commit. Although in the eyes of the law you are innocent until proven guilty, being charged with a crime can come with a number of consequences. Unfortunately even though you haven’t been proven guilty, that’s not always how people will see you, and in fact, simply being charged with a crime is often enough to tarnish your reputation.

Take tax fraud for example. Imagine a scenario where you are at home enjoying a cup of coffee with your family when the bad news comes–you’ve been accused of tax fraud. Your family and friends believe that you’re innocent, but what about your coworkers? It’s a truly unfortunate circumstance to find yourself in, but there is hope!

Hire an Attorney for Fraud Cases

Regardless of your situation, the right move is to call an attorney as soon as possible. Even if you believe that you’ve done nothing wrong, people–including police officers and investigators–may suspect otherwise. We always like to advise that acquiring help from a lawyer with experience in the field of fraud should be retained as early in the process as you’re able to.

You see, having a good lawyer by your side ensures that no matter what charges are brought against you that you’ll have someone you can trust to help you navigate the complexities of fraud cases. As you can probably imagine, these cases are often difficult to get to the bottom of. That means that having someone with experience is an absolute necessity in making it through your situation and securing a positive outcome for your situation.

What is Tax Fraud?

There are a number of different tax fraud charges with might require the assistance of a federal defense attorney. From tax evasion to filing a falsified tax return to simply failing to file a tax return altogether, the number of different charges that can be brought against you can feel overwhelming.

If you’ve ever done your own taxes before, you know how confusing it can be to make your way from the beginning of the paperwork to the end of it. It often seems overly complex and it’s easy to misunderstand what is needed from you. In other words, there are a lot of things that can go wrong and whether your alleged crime was intentional or not, you’re going to need someone with experience to be by your side.

Put Your Trust in Our Experience

At the Law Offices of Robert J. DeGroot, we are fully dedicated to helping each of our clients to the best of our ability. To that point, New Jersey tax fraud attorney Robert J. DeGroot has been working to help those who have been charged with crimes for over forty years.

What Happens When You’re Charged With a Crime

The majority of people out there have never been charged with a crime. That means that if it happens to you, it can come as quite the shock! But what is it that happens when you’re charged with a crime? Is it always the same? Are there any particular things that you should definitely do? Are there things you should definitely not do?

At The Law Offices of Robert J. DeGroot, our goal is to take your difficult situation and make it a bit easier for you. We know that what you’re going through is probably incredibly difficult to navigate, but we strive to provide our clients with the best possible service. That’s why in today’s blog, we’ll take a look at a few of the things you might expect in your situation. Keep reading to learn more!

You Will Likely Be Arrested

In the event of a white collar crime–or most other crimes for that matter–the first thing you can expect is to be arrested. Depending on where you live, the amount of time it takes for the next step can vary a bit, but in general, you can expect to be charged with a crime after your arrest. Most of the time this happens within a couple of days, but depending on your situation, the charge (or charges) that is initially brought against you could change to something else by the time everything is said and done.

Hire a White Collar Crime Lawyer

We’ve said this a number of times on our blog, but hiring an attorney as early on in the process as you can is always your best move to make. Having someone you trust by your side is absolutely invaluable, but having a lawyer who has plenty of experience in dealing with cases similar to yours and who knows how to help you navigate through the process of what’s to come is absolutely vital.

When you hire a lawyer, you will want to be certain that he or she has experience in working with the types of cases that are similar to yours. After all, would you rather have someone who has some experience in other areas, but none in yours, or someone who has been practicing law in the area of your case for years? You will very likely be feeling stress and pressure during a situation as difficult as this and having the right attorney by your side during the process can help to negate some of those feelings and replace them with optimism for what’s to come.

3 Reasons to Get the Best White Collar Crime Lawyer You Can

If you’re under investigation for a white collar crime, chances are that you’re wondering what your next steps should be. It’s a piece of advice you’ll find often on our blog, but we feel that it always bears repeating so that people set themselves up for success–you should hire a white collar crime lawyer as early in the process as you can.

For some people, hiring a lawyer seems like an unnecessary step because they know they didn’t commit any crimes and they think they have nothing to fear. For others it’s something they think they should do only in the days leading up to the trial. The truth of the matter is that the earlier you have a lawyer on your side, the better off you’re likely to be.

Is having a lawyer going to automatically get you off the hook? It’s not likely, but we strongly believe that having someone you can consult with before you answer any questions or make any decisions will always be to your benefit. That’s why the team at the Law Offices of Robert J. DeGroot has put together this blog. It’s in your best interest to hire a great lawyer. Keep reading to see a few of the things we think you need to look for.

What Qualities Should a Truly Great White Collar Crime Lawyer Have?

You Need Someone With Experience

To put it simply, your best bet is always to go with someone who has plenty of experience in defending against the type of charges that have been brought against you. Just like with many other areas of expertise, different lawyers have different focuses that they employ at their practice. Think of it this way–you wouldn’t go to a brain surgeon to have your knee examined. Similarly, you need to find a lawyer who specializes in the area of crime you’re being charged with. It’s the best way to set yourself up for success.

You Need Someone With Knowledge

Alongside of experience is knowledge in how to approach a situation and what steps need to be taken along the way. This is why we always recommend taking a bit of time to speak with a couple of different lawyers before making a decision about who to work with if you can. We know that you might be feeling crunched for time, so doing a bit of research on the internet can also be in your best interest.

For the record, as of the time of this writing, attorney Robert J. DeGroot has a 5-star rating on both Google, Lawyers.com, and Facebook and a 94% rating on Avvo.

You Need Someone With a Track Record of Success

It’s also important to find someone to work with who knows how to get the job done right. After all, what good is it to partner with a law firm who can’t seem to win a case? If you take the time to read the reviews mentioned above, you’ll see that time and time again, our team has fought for the legal rights of those we are representing and secured a positive outcome even though the situation was difficult. Finding an attorney who does the same means that you’re setting yourself up for success as much as you can. Are you guaranteed to win your case? Unfortunately not, but having the odds on your side makes things much better.

What to Know if You’re Under Investigation for a White Collar Crime

Being investigated for a white collar crime is a pretty serious matter. Chances are that if you know you’re under investigation, you’re already wondering what the next step is and how you can best set yourself up for success moving forward. As you can probably imagine, our advice is that you hire an attorney as early in the process as possible. It’s something we mention a lot on our blog, but we feel that it bears repeating because it’s so vitally important to the outcome of your case.

That’s why in today’s blog, we’ll be discussing the order of operations that we think is ideal for anything under investigation for a white collar crime. Of course the most important thing to know is that every situation is different, but one thing always remains the same–call a lawyer as early as you can. Different circumstances may require different tactics, but be sure to take the first opportunity possible to hire a white collar crime lawyer.

“Can I Talk to Any Lawyer?”

Perhaps you’ve worked with a lawyer in the past. Maybe you were involved in a car accident and you hired a lawyer to help negate charges against you. Perhaps you were involved in a slip and fall accident and you found that you needed to be compensated for your medical bills. If that’s the case, you might be tempted to give your old lawyer a call.

The truth of the matter, however, is that you’re going to set yourself up for success if you speak to someone who is specifically trained in the intricacies of fighting white collar crime charges. After all, you wouldn’t go to a home improvement store for help with your car and you wouldn’t take your sick dog to a human doctor.

Different lawyers have different areas of expertise, so you need to be sure to speak to someone who has experience in the correct field in order to be sure that you get the best help you can.

Why You Should Speak to an Attorney Before Making a Statement

When you’re being investigated for a white collar crime, whether it’s tax fraud, tax evasion, bank fraud, or anything else, chances are that you’ll be notified that an investigation is underway. Your natural instinct, of course, will be to be cooperative with any officers or agents who are conducting the investigation. At some point or another, in an attempt to get to the bottom of things, these people might ask you to give a statement.

Whether you’re guilty or innocent, one of the worst things you can do is to make a statement without having an attorney present. Sure, you might just be trying to help or clear things up, but it’s always in your best interest to have a lawyer present who can advise you. At the Law Offices of Robert J. DeGroot, we always advocate for hiring a lawyer as early into the process as you possibly can because we can provide you with helpful advice at every step of the road.

Robert J. DeGroot to the Rescue

It might seem like an awkward situation to be in. After all, if you’re not guilty of committing any crimes, chances are that you’ll want to tell your side of the story and clear your name. You may even feel that asking for a lawyer is evidence of your incrimination or that it will make you look bad. Trust us when we say that this couldn’t be further from the truth. No matter who you’re speaking to, they’ll very likely understand what you’re going through and all you have to say is that it seems like you’re in a rather serious situation and you’d like to speak with your lawyer.

Any levelheaded person will understand that this is in your best interest because it’s likely that they would do the same thing if they were in your situation.
