This post concludes and recaps my series on the handling of white collar charges in Austin, Texas. Unfortunately, many defendants do not realize the gravity of facing such charges. Many defendants also do not know what steps to take after they have been charged with a crime. The intention of my last several articles has been to provide information which will help people to better understand their situation. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist with the selection of a criminal defense attorney. If you or a loved one have been arrested then contact my office today to speak with a lawyer.
I have addressed several topics over my recent articles. Issues which I have analyzed include:
- Search and seizure issues in white collar cases
- Defending against theft charges
- Cases involving complex financial crimes
- The difference between Texas and federal charges
There are several reasons why I chose to write on these issues. First, it is not uncommon for state police or the F.B.I. to recover evidence through a violation of the defendant’s Fourth Amendment rights. Such violations can lead to a ruling that the evidence be inadmissible in court. Depending on the nature of the charges, such a ruling may lead to a dismissal of the case. Second, theft (otherwise known as “embezzlement”) can involve acts against family members, employers, and others. These charges carry serious consequences. Third, complex financial cases can be difficult to present to a jury. Finally, it is crucial to understand that the states and the federal government have separate justice systems.
One point I stressed through each of these articles is that it is vital to contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer if you or a loved one have been arrested. Many people make the mistake of taking white collar charges lightly, often because they do not involve violent acts. Prosecutors, however, can be expected to pursue such matter with vigor. As such, one should retain quality representation. I have been practicing since 1995 and am certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization as a specialist in criminal law.
