Boston White Collar Crimes Defense Attorneys
White collar crimes often more closely resemble civil cases than other criminal cases. The accused is often a professional, unaccustomed to the criminal justice system. State and federal prosecutors generally conduct a more thorough investigation while building circumstantial cases, pressuring peers and co-workers to testify against the accused, and using substantial documentation to back up their charges. A criminal defense attorney must file specific discovery motions to obtain the copies of the necessary evidence to properly assess a case for his client. Additionally, most white collar criminal cases involve charges of conspiracy, which allow prosecutors to circumvent the hearsay rules that otherwise would prevent unsubstantiated claims from being entered as evidence against a defendant.

Addressing the Evidence Presented
A defense lawyer may pursue discovery of evidence in a white collar criminal case in two ways:
- By filing discovery motions with the court to order the prosecutor to turn over the documents and evidence in his file.
- By persuading the court to order an employer, hospital, bank or other third-party to turn over additional items to the defense. For example, in the case of embezzlement charges, the employer might have documents that are important to your case that the prosecutor does not have in his possession - or simply has not pursued.
To determine which documents are important to your case, your defense attorney must conduct his or her own independent investigation. Preparation is 90 percent of the battle in white collar crime cases such as fraud and embezzlement. It is therefore vitally important for you to contact an experienced and skilled criminal defense attorney as soon as you learn you are under investigation for a white-collar crime.
