Annapolis and Baltimore White Collar Criminal Attorney
Maryland prosecutors take white collar crimes very seriously. Most white collar crimes are charged as felonies, which means that a conviction could result not only in a prison sentence of more than one year, but a lifetime criminal record as a convicted felon. It is not uncommon to see local prosecutors shift these cases to federal court, where your prison sentence could be much longer.
Examples of white collar crimes include:
My name is Jim Crawford, and since 1992 I've represented people charged with white collar crimes in both state and federal courts throughout Maryland, including Baltimore, Catonsville, Annapolis and Bel Air.
I help clients charged with everything from writing bad checks to bribing government officials.
My goal in a white collar crime case is to look for a defense that can explain or neutralize the state's evidence against you. If the government has a weak case, it may be possible to avoid criminal charges. Even if the government has a strong case against you, which is often the case when a grand jury votes to indict you during the grand jury proceeding, early involvement by your lawyer can help minimize the possible consequences.
