White Collar Crimes

These types of crimes generally consist of theft and deception committed by salaried professionals as opposed to crimes that use force or violence. They can be prosecuted on both the State and Federal level.

Common charges in this type of case are bribery, embezzlement (fraudulent converstion of property of another by a person in lawful possession of that property), extortion (forcing a person to give up property through the use of violence, fear or under pretense of authority), forgery (making or altering of a false writing with the intent to defraud, larceny (taking or carrying away of the personal property of another by trespass with the intent to permanently, or for an unreasonable time, to deprive the person of his/her interest in the property), fraud, perjury, etc.

These type of paper cases often have their own issues of compliance with the law. At KIA LAW FIRM, we have been successful in having charges dismissed, charges reduced and even resolved the matter without the need for court intervention through what is referred to as a “civil compromise” that the parties all agree to sign. A “civil compromise”, if successful, will allow the charges to be dismissed in their entirety from the court. Contact KIA LAW FIRM to obtain more information about possible defenses in these type of cases.
