    White-collar crimes cover an extremely broad spectrum. Many white-collar crimes include non-violent allegations such as fraud, federal and state regulatory violations, violations of consumer protection laws, embezzlement, campaign finance violations, and a wide variety of other crimes. Typically, white-collar crimes are prosecuted in federal court; however, there is no limitation on this and they can also be prosecuted in state court. While still a criminal prosecution, white-collar crimes are frequently litigated in the same way as a civil case, even though the results of the allegations could include incarceration and fines.

    Criminal defendants in white-collar cases can be both individuals and businesses. Typically involving some form of business transaction, the allegations in white-collar cases frequently involve large sums of money. For this reason, and often for the protection of the consumer, allegations of white-collar crimes are zealously prosecuted and carry heavy penalties. Because of this, it is important to select a team of lawyers that has concrete experience in the field of white-collar crime who can aggressively defend against allegations.

    While many lawyers in Denver and Colorado Springs claim to be “white-collar criminal defense attorneys,” few have true experience litigating these types of cases. With lengthy trials involving large sums of money, many attorneys simply do not have the time, experience and resources to litigate allegations of this type.
