A lengthy investigation often precedes an arrest and conviction for a white-collar crime; therefore, you must retain the Kareem Law APC as soon as you become aware of an investigation against you. It may be prompted by reports from clients, businesses, nonprofits, or law enforcement agencies. Therefore, we must defend your legal rights and provide the necessary legal counsel to guide you through the investigation. When you hire us, our California white-collar crime attorneys will vigorously advocate for your best interests to help you overcome your white-collar crime charges.

Some of the most common white-collar crimes charged in California are:

Potential Punishments and Collateral Consequences

If you are charged with a white-collar crime, the specific statutory punishments will depend on the offense, whether any aggravating factors are present, and your criminal history. If this is a first-time offense, we can fight for the minimum charge and punishment upon conviction, including as little jail time as possible. However, you can expect a more extreme charge and punishment if this is a subsequent criminal offense. A defense attorney with extensive experience negotiating with prosecutors can get you the best plea deal possible if you’re facing a conviction.

If you are convicted of a misdemeanor, you can be punished with up to 364 days in a local or county jail.

If you are convicted of a felony, you face time in prison. You can also be punished with fines, community service, restitution, probation, and more.

Additional consequences of a misdemeanor or felony conviction include:

Types of White Collar Crimes in California

California white-collar crimes are non-violent offenses such as money laundering, embezzlement, extortion, wire fraud, and health care fraud. Although it is common to think that crime is mostly violent, there are non-violent types of crime that people commit.

While emails, meetings, and phone conversations, along with financial records, can prove who was involved in white-collar crime, proving who agreed to go ahead with certain actions can be difficult. There might be more than one person involved, or it may be a case of genuine miscommunication.

White collar crimes include:

A complex crime is the commission of two or more felonies in the commission of a crime. White-collar crimes are frequently classified as complex crimes due to the fact that offenders typically commit one offense while committing another. Compound crime is another type of complex crime in which a single act constitutes two or more felonies.

The penalties for complex and compound crimes vary according to the number of felonies committed. The severity of the crimes committed and the court in which they are tried determine the severity of the punishment. Fortunately, our white-collar crimes defense attorney obtains valuable trial experience in state and federal courts, allowing us to fight for a favorable outcome regardless of which court hears your case.

Because white-collar crimes are numerous and of varying severity, there are no set penalties. However, you will likely face jail time and fines if you do not retain our seasoned legal counsel immediately. In addition, you could lose your job, your housing options, and your personal and professional reputation. Therefore, you must take your accusation seriously because much more than your freedom is at stake.

Questions To Ask When Choosing Your Criminal Defense Attorney

California white-collar crimes are non-violent offenses such as money laundering, embezzlement, extortion, wire fraud, and health care fraud. Although it is common to think that crime is mostly violent, there are non-violent types of crime that people commit.

Many white-collar crimes are especially difficult to prosecute because the perpetrators use sophisticated means to conceal their activities through a series of complex transactions. Whistleblowers are particularly helpful to prosecutors of white-collar crime because these whistleblowers report internal wrongdoing.

While emails, meetings, and phone conversations, along with financial records, can prove who was involved in white-collar crime, proving who agreed to go ahead with certain actions can be difficult. There might be more than one person involved, or it may be a case of genuine miscommunication.

I was faced with a case that never in my life I’d imagine to be dealing with that could’ve had detrimental effects on my life and career ending. Kareem was the best defense I had to get my life back together. From start to finish Kareem was very attentive, informative and determined to help get this fixed and he did! The case was never filed! Thank you!

I was arrested and was facing 2 felonies in October and spent some time sitting in county jail. After calling tens of lawyers to help I immediately knew Kareem would provide the help I was looking for. He walked me through the entire court process and was very reassuring that I had nothing to worry about. It is a great feeling when you have a confident lawyer behind you. Kareem managed to get my case dismissed and I have no charges on my record now. I don’t think I would have this result if it weren’t for his help. I would recommend him to anyone. He knows what he’s doing and he is the man for the job.

Before hiring Kareem Law I made the mistake of listening to some ads for personal injury attorneys on the radio. I did not know what to expect since this was my first time needing to hire an attorney. The first office never returned my calls and never connected me with an attorney. I thought attorneys wanted to help their clients not treat them like dirt. I found Kareem's office after a family member told me of an attorney who did excellent work on his personal injury case.From the first call with Kareem he created a strong relationship with me where I felt appreciated and heard. Mr. Ramadan was always available when I needed answers and did a fabulous job settling my case.

I was very fortunate to have had Kareem as my attorney. From our very first conversation, I could tell he was very knowledgeable and experienced. His empathy and care for my situation, were encouraging and made me feel safe. Kareem was very personable, reachable, and communicated clearly. Kareem put a lot of effort to get the case dismissed and achieve a complete resolution without the additional stress of a trial. I am beyond grateful to him!

Never in my life, did I think I would need a criminal defense attorney. A close family member committed a federal crime and suddenly I was searching for a criminal defense attorney. I submitted an inquiry to all lawyers in the Upland area and I am so thankful that Attorney Kareem was quick to reply on a Sunday afternoon!The next day, he was already doing a jail visit with my family member. The following day, we were meeting and discussing the case in his office. Right from the beginning,Kareem expressed his care and compassion for us and my incarcerated family member. He also made us feel very comfortable telling us a personal story of his that made him appreciate nurses, which my mom and I are! This life journey of his, made us feel that he knows the value of life and our family member would be in excellent hands.Kareem was always available to answer all our questions. If you call him or text him, he will always respond right away or within a few hours. This was an extremely difficult time in our lives and Kareem was always there to ease our minds. When trying to find an attorney who is going to save your life or a close family members, you have to fully trust your lawyer and Kareem is that man. He strongly advocated for my family member and got him released from jail with a mental health diversion. This was the goal from the beginning and we could not be more thankful to Attorney Kareem for the outcome.
