White Collar Defense
White Collar Defense describes generally the representation of business people who are being investigated or prosecuted for criminal offenses dealing with actions or omissions in a business context. These cases can arise through various federal and state investigative agencies, the United States Justice Department, the Attorney General or local State District Attorneys.
James, McElroy & Diehl lawyers have expertise in providing advice and counsel in such matters. Several of our lawyers have served as State and Federal prosecutors in such cases, and now bring their expertise to bear in the defense of individuals and business organizations under investigation or having been charged.
We act discreetly and effectively to resolve investigations and where appropriate to negotiate resolutions. We are experienced trial lawyers who have successfully defended such cases in jury trials.
