Being accused of embezzlement, fraud, or another white collar crime can have a devastating effect upon your business, your personal and professional reputation, and your family life. Once you’ve been accused of, or charged with, such an offense you’ll find that you’re suddenly faced with a world of trouble and uncertainty. You could be facing a significant loss of liberty, heavy penalties and fines, and may be ordered to repay significant restitution if the victim of the crime has suffered losses as a result of your conduct.
Law Offices of William V. Pernik is here to help you during this trying time in your life. We completely understand how stressful and frightening accusations of white collar crime can be, and are dedicated to providing you with a full range of legal services to help you fight your charges.
We approach your case with discretion and use legal knowledge to help you work toward resolution. In some situations, that may mean challenging insufficient evidence during the investigatory stage so that your charges are dropped. In others, we may be able to negotiate a plea agreement with prosecutors so that you face reduced charges and penalties, often conditioned on payment of restitution. If any of the evidence against you has been illegally obtained, we can bring motions to suppress to prevent the government from being able to use it in their case against you.
If your case goes to a jury trial, we have the necessary trial experience to pinpoint the weaknesses in the prosecution’s case against you, and to effectively present evidence on your behalf to establish any potential defenses that you may have. Our professional network includes top quality private investigators, forensic accountants, and mental health and substance abuse experts, who we routinely consult with and rely on in preparing to present evidence or arguments in court.
If you’ve been accused of a white collar crime, you need an experienced, resourceful, and aggressive defense advocate. Call Law Offices of William V. Pernik today to schedule your initial consultation.
