Portland White Collar Crime Lawyers
There was a time when “white collar” crimes were overlooked or lightly punished. These days fraud and financial crimes are vigorously prosecuted and people go to prison. If you are facing charges or under investigation, it is critical to hire a competent defense to counter the resources and resolve of the government.
The Portland law firm of Levine & McHenry LLC provides capable criminal defense for white collar cases in state and federal courts of Oregon. Our partners have achieved notable outcomes for clients at all stages, from pre-indictment to post-conviction. If you have been arrested or questioned, do not hesitate to contact us.
Sophisticated Defense For Fraud And Financial Crimes
Our experienced law partners, Michael R. Levine and Matthew McHenry, have handled the full range of white collar crimes, including:
- Securities fraud
- Tax fraud/tax evasion
- Insurance fraud
- Corporate embezzlement
- Identity theft
- Wire fraud/mail fraud
- Money laundering
Our two-pronged approach emphasizes early intervention while we are preparing for the possibility of a trial. We have had success with pre-indictment resolutions that avoided arrest or reduced the charges. If the prosecution goes forward, we explore our client’s defenses while remaining open to negotiations.
White collar prosecutions are document-intensive, and the investigations may span many months. We commonly work with forensic experts to trace the paper trail to cast doubt on the government’s case. Is there evidence of criminal intent or personal gain? Did other people have access to the documents or accounts?
Our lawyers are skilled at challenging facts and laying out credible counterarguments as leverage for a dismissal, a plea or a mitigated sentence. No matter how serious or complex the allegations, we are confident that we can favorably change the outcome.
We understand that your career or professional license may be at stake, even if you are able to avoid prison. Our approach is tailored to the facts of your case and your personal circumstances.
