What Type of Attorney Do You Need?

August 20, 2019

When you are facing any type of criminal charges, you should have an attorney working with you on your side to help you through the proceedings. While no lawyer can guarantee that you will not face consequences if you are proven guilty, working with an attorney gives you the best chance of coming through your case or investigation without lasting charges or convictions. Just as important as having an attorney, it is important that you have the right attorney. So what type of attorney do you need?


There are a lot of general practice attorneys out there that will take just about any case that is presented to them. These attorneys may have a general understanding of the law when it comes to white collar crimes, but they will not be experts. This can cause some problems with your case, or it may cause your attorney to not be as effective as you need them to be. It is important that you choose an attorney that specializes in white collar crimes.


Even attorneys that specialize in white collar crimes may not be up to the task of your case. If your case is complicated, or if there are indications that you could be facing more than one charge, you need to make sure that the attorney you hire is able to handle all aspects of your case. Hiring an attorney or firm that has extensive experience in the defense of white collar crimes is your best chance of avoiding hefty fines and potential jail time.

Financially Available

Hiring an attorney can cost quite a bit of money, but it is an investment in yourself and your future that you should not ignore. It is a good idea, however, to find an attorney that is financially available, meaning that their fees are reasonable or average for the field, and they may be able to work with you on payment of fees. While defending against white collar crime can be expensive, legal representation should also be attainable.

If you have been accused of a white collar crime and need representation, contact us today for more information or to schedule a consultation.
