Professional Representation For White Collar Offenses
White collar crimes have consequences that go far beyond possible jail time or probation. Crimes such as theft, fraud and embezzlement are crimes of dishonesty. Few employers would want to hire you if you have been convicted of a white collar crime.
To protect your reputation and your future, get strong legal counsel as soon as possible. Stirling & O’Connell in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, has the experience to defend you against all types of white collar charges, including:
- Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Accounting fraud
- Insider trading
- Tax evasion
If this is your first offense, it may be possible to resolve your case without the stigma of a criminal conviction. For this reason, it’s important to put your case in the hands of an experienced defense lawyer as soon as possible. You should not attempt to explain your side of the case to law enforcement, as you could end up giving prosecutors damaging evidence that they can use against you.
White collar offenses involving significant theft could end up in federal court. As a former state and federal public defender, attorney Michael O’Connell has the experience to defend you in state or federal court.
