White Collar Crimes
White collar offenses, such as money laundering, identity theft, embezzlement, counterfeiting, ransomware, and other cybercrimes, can carry severe penalties under New York and federal law. Individuals and businesses charged with white collar offenses are often accused of a wide range of multiple offenses. As a result, presenting an effective defense strategy in a white collar case requires focused, organized, and detail-oriented legal representation from a team of experienced attorneys.
At Epstein & Conroy, P.C., we have extensive experience representing defendants in white collar investigations and prosecutions throughout New York City in state and federal courts. In each case, we work closely with our client, uncovering the key facts that lead to focused defense strategies. While we will seek to minimize the consequences of a trial conviction or negotiated plea, our first priority in every case is dismissal.
Aggressive Defense Lawyers for White Collar Cases in NYC
- Money Laundering – Depending on the case, money laundering charges can be brought in New York State or federal court. The potential prison terms are lengthy and can range up to decades behind bars. For lesser offenses, it may be possible to avoid jail time, and in some cases seeking reduced charges is a critical component of a sound money laundering defense strategy. Prosecutors often look to the level of a defendant’s involvement, the sophistication of the alleged scheme, and the number of alleged “transactions.” Our experienced attorneys seek to minimize the scope of the charges in order to maximize the sentencing options that are on the table.
- Identity Theft and Fraud - Charges for identity theft and fraud can stem from a variety of conduct, ranging from stealing credit cards and personal information to impersonating others in electronic communications and other transactions. Lesser identity theft and identity fraud offenses are often charged as misdemeanors in New York, while more-serious offenses can result in felony charges, or even federal charges, carrying the possibility of thousands of dollars in fines and many years in prison.
- Embezzlement - Embezzlement is a theft crime that involves stealing money or property that you have been entrusted to hold secure. In New York, the criminal penalties for embezzlement are determined based upon the amount of money or the value of property involved. However, embezzlement of more than $1,000 in money or property is a felony offense; and, in cases involving substantial sums, defendants can potentially face decades behind bars.
- Cybercrime - Cybercrime is increasingly becoming a top priority for both state and federal law enforcement. Agencies at both levels are constantly developing new ways to uncover and investigate possible cybercrimes. As a result, cybercrime offenses are strongly prosecuted and can lead to serious consequences. At Epstein & Conroy, we represent individuals and businesses in New York facing charges for computer tampering, computer trespass, unauthorized duplication, unauthorized use, criminal possession of computer related material, ransomware attacks, bitcoin offenses and other cyber offenses.
