White Collar Crime Attorney

White collar crime includes many types of fraud. White collar crimes, generally speaking, are those crimes that are distinguished in a sense because 1) the potential offender is usually a professional person of some sort (with little to no prior criminal record) and 2) the crimes are generally economic in nature versus violent.

In contrast, regular, Blue-collar crime tends to be more obvious and thus attracts more active police attention (e.g. for crimes such as trespassing or burglary, where physical force is used or physical property is disturbed/damaged/involved). White-collar defendant's can be employees in legitimate corporate jobs making themselves less obvious when committing the crime. Statistics show that a large portion of white-collar crime is undetected or, if detected, it is not reported.

Corporate crime deals with the company or corporation as a whole. Crimes benefiting investors or the individuals who are in high positions in the company or corporation are generally called corporate crimes. The relationship between white-collar crime and corporate crime is similar because they both are involved within the business world. The main difference is that white-collar crime benefits the individual involved, and corporate crime benefits the company, corporation, or business entity as a whole.
