White Collar Crime Defense Lawyers in New York State

Providing Strong Legal Assistance for over 35 Years

The New York State Penal Code has many and varied crimes that are classified as white collar crimes. What they all share in common are that the crime involves one or many of the following:

  • Fraud
  • Theft
  • Deceit
  • Forgery
  • Stealing or intent to steal

White collar crimes are pursued vigorously by the government both at the state and federal levels. The alleged white collar criminal stands to lose their good name, their business, and/or their freedom. A conviction for a white collar crime can have a devastating impact far beyond that to the particular individual

If you are facing charges, reach out to Cohen Forman Barone, LLP for aggressive defense.
