Defining White Collar Crime

Many Texans have become more aware of white collar crime in the past few years, as the state and federal government have increased their efforts to prosecute these offenses. But many people do not accurately understand these complex crimes. The term "white collar crime" is an umbrella term that refers to several violations committed for financial gain. Though white collar crime can occur in any industry, it is often found in the health care and financial sectors.

White collar crime can include:

  • Fraud, including insurance fraud, Medicaid fraud, prescription fraud and wire fraud
  • Federal tax offenses
  • Embezzlement
  • Cybercrime

White Collar Charges Can Derail Your Career

If you are under investigation for a white collar crime, you face much more than a criminal sentence. A conviction — or merely an investigation — for a white collar crime can jeopardize your professional reputation as well as those of your colleagues and your employer. To protect your career, it is crucial to obtain experienced representation from a defense lawyer who has successfully represented clients in similar cases.
