Experience Is Key When It Comes To White Collar Crimes

White collar crimes generally fall under the umbrella of a federal offense. These are some of the most complex and intensely investigated of all criminal cases. Having a defense attorney who thoroughly understands how the system works can be the key to successfully navigating these situations.

At The Region Lawyers, we have extensive firsthand knowledge of the federal justice system and have been trial-tested countless times. Consequences and penalties for federal-level crimes are extremely harsh and the trials are exhaustive, backed by highly funded, aggressive government judges and prosecutors. It’s incredibly important to have a defense attorney with substantial experience on your side.

Potential Penalties For Common Federal White Collar Crimes

Our clients put their futures in our hands. If you’ve been accused of one of the following offenses in Indiana, it’s essential to get the right representation behind you:

  • Securities fraud
  • Medicare and other health care fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Ponzi schemes
  • Bank and wire fraud
  • Anti-trust violations
  • Counterfeiting
  • Credit card and/or wire fraud

Any of these charges can result in serious penalties ranging from prison time to high restitution. Federal cases carry much more severe sentences than other types of charges and many have sentencing guidelines that are uncompromising and harsh. Some of the resulting potential penalties include:

Tax Evasion

Intentionally falsifying tax information to avoid payments can lead to imprisonment and substantial federal fines of up to $250,000 for individuals or $500,000 for corporations.


Misappropriating entrusted funds for personal gain can result in federal penalties, including fines and imprisonment, with potential fines of up to $1 million and a 30-year sentence.

Financial Fraud

Deceptive financial practices for personal gain result in steep federal penalties, with fines ranging from thousands to millions of dollars and accompanied by lengthy prison sentences based on severity.

Health Care Fraud

Deceptive practices in healthcare for financial gain can be punished with fines up to $250,000 and imprisonment up to 10 years.

Beyond the potential for a prison sentence or steep fines, a white collar crime conviction can have a significant impact on your reputation and future. A conviction can follow you around for years even after other penalties have been satisfied. Your career and livelihood will be at risk, as will your reputation among your family, friends and community.

Seeking guidance from an experienced white collar crime lawyer early on is crucial to understand your options and build a robust defense.
