Dallas White Collar Crime Lawyer
White Collar Crime Definition
White collar crimes are typically financial crimes where a fiscal loss is incurred in a business or government transaction due to illegal activity. It is important to note that there is no clear-cut definition of a white collar crime, although these offenses are most often committed by professionals in corporate capacities. Due to the complex nature of these crimes, choosing a truly excellent and exceptional Dallas white collar crime attorney is not merely an option if you wish to win your case-it is a necessity.
