White Collar Crimes
White collar crime accusations are a serious matter in Massachusetts. While these types of crimes are generally nonviolent, they are still considered extremely damaging to alleged victims and society. That is due to the financial harm they generally cause, whether to a private citizen, a business, or a government entity, such as a state welfare system or health care agency. These are crimes committed for monetary gain or some type of financial benefit, whether it be access to someone’s bank account or government benefits gained through fraudulent means.
Being investigated for a white collar crime or arrested for criminal activity of this nature can damage your reputation as well as endanger your job or career, your professional licenses, and your freedom.
