Federal White Collar Criminal Defense Attorneys
Experienced federal criminal defense lawyers protecting the rights of individuals accused of white collar crime
The term “white collar crime” refers to crimes motivated by the potential for financial gain that are accomplished through non-violent means. While white collar crimes can be committed by anyone, they are often committed by professional or government employees with access to sensitive data or other people’s assets. White collar crime may not seem as serious as violent crime, but the reality is that federal authorities take white collar crime extremely seriously. If you are convicted of a white collar offense, you may be subjected to significant financial penalties and may be sentenced to prison. Consequently, if you are under investigation or have been charged with this type of crime, it is extremely important to retain an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.

Representing people and businesses accused of a variety of white collar offenses
White collar crime can take a number of forms. As a result, it is important to consult with an attorney who is familiar with white collar criminal defense and the various federal laws that may apply to your case. Connecticut attorneys Felice Duffy and Paul Thomas are highly qualified to represent people accused of any number of federal white collar crimes, including the following:
- Mail and wire fraud
- Health care fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Bank fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Government fraud
- Money laundering and structuring
- Tax offenses
It is important for you to remember that it is never too late in your white collar case to retain legal counsel. If you are under investigation for criminal activity, you have legal rights that, when aggressively protected, can have a significant impact on the way federal authorities may gather evidence. It is important to assert these rights from the start. Authorities, however, are under no obligation to inform you of these rights in many cases. When you retain an attorney, he or she will ensure that your rights are protected and that you do not inadvertently admit guilt or implicate yourself in a criminal matter simply by cooperating with an investigation. In addition, an attorney will be able to identify any procedural mistakes or violations of your rights that investigators may make, potentially resulting in any case against you being dropped or dismissed.
