White Collar Crimes

The Experience and Knowledge
to be Effective

White collar crimes are a name that we give mostly to a class of crimes involving an illegal misappropriation of money or breach of professional trust. These cases require a set of skills and resources unlike more traditional criminal law cases, and thus also require a certain type of attorney who can marshal those qualities and resources.

At the Philadelphia law firm of Shaka Johnson, Esquire, our lawyers have decades of experience as both assistant district attorneys and defenders handling the most complex cases. We know the necessity for precision in gathering and evaluating evidence in white collar crime cases, and we know how to do the forensic and investigative steps necessary to build a strong defense.

We also understand how the prosecution will build its case against you, and how to expose the weaknesses in that case.

The Need for Precision and Detail

Every criminal law case requires attention to detail, but traditionally white collar crime cases require more than most. In fact, it is often the side that can do a better job of investigating, gathering and evaluating evidence that will build the stronger case, so the need for detail-oriented representation is paramount.

Our attorneys put decades of combined experience and the dependable resources to build a strong case to work for you in matters of:

  • Credit Card Fraud
  • Identity Theft
  • Forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Securities Fraud
  • Real Estate Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • RICO and Racketeering
  • Check Kiting
  • Breach of Fiduciary Duties

We have lawyers on staff with a proven background in white collar crimes cases. We have built these cases in the District Attorney's office, and so we know firsthand where the weaknesses and strengths of a prosecutor's case lies. That is invaluable experience that can potentially be a strong advantage for your defense.

Even if we can't get your case entirely dismissed, which is our primary goal, we can help you reduce your fiscal liability and potential restitution requirements.
