White-collar crime is becoming more common. If you learn that you are accused of such a crime, you need to reach out to me. Time is not your friend in cases of business fraud. The sooner I can begin working on the details of your case—which may include entering into plea negotiations, preparing your case for trial, or anything in between—the better off you and your business will be. Since I began practicing law in 2004, I’ve approached each case with an attention to detail, an empathetic outlook, and a willingness to fight for you and your future.
How Can a Lawyer Help You?
Allegations of fraud can ruin a business professional’s career. That’s why, when you work with me, I make it a priority to walk you through each step of your case. I’ll address any questions or concerns that may arise along the way, and outline possible strategies that we can use to protect your rights and preserve your future. Different strategies have different possible results; I’ll explain how each outcome could affect your personal and professional life. For example, the penalties for white-collar crimes could include the payment of heavy fines or even long jail sentences. Ultimately, you decide how to move forward. We’re a team, and we’re in this together.
Don’t Face the Legal System Alone
Thousands of people each year fall victim to fraud. In fact, in cases involving white-collar crime, it is possible for a person who is accused of committing business fraud to be both criminally prosecuted and sued in a civil action. It’s a serious accusation with serious consequences. To make matters worse, the system is not set up to support those who have been accused of crimes. It’s not true that you are ‘innocent until proven guilty.’ The deck is stacked against you and your business, and it’s always been that way. But it doesn’t mean things are hopeless.
For clients throughout Tennessee, including Knoxville and the surrounding areas of Anderson, Blount, Sevier, and Roane Counties, I work tirelessly to make sure they get a shot at justice. My extensive trial experience allows me to navigate the legal system and fight for favorable outcomes in all kinds of white-collar crime cases. As a compassionate protector of your rights and your future, I’ll be there when you need me.
