Houston, Texas, Fraud Defense Lawyer

White collar crime refers to criminal charges against people who would otherwise not be suspected of being involved in criminal activity. White collar crime is often difficult to recognize because so often it happens behind closed office doors, at a home computer, through the mail, or over the Internet. The truth is that people with good jobs, nice families, nice houses in the suburbs, and expensive cars, are often charged with financial crimes such as fraud and embezzlement. What started in the 1930’s as a term that referred to crimes committed by the upper crust of society, now is used to generally define any crime in which no physical violence was committed upon the victim.
