New Hampshire & Maine Criminal Defense Lawyer

Also known as economic crimes, white collar crimes arise from deceptive or fraudulent acts that damage the financial state of an individual, business, or the government, itself.

Common white collar crimes include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Embezzlement
  • Extortion
  • Forgery
  • Fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Tax evasion
