White Collar Criminal Defense

In recent years, white collar crime has been thrusted into the spotlight. Government efforts to thwart sophisticated business crimes has generated a significant increase in white collar criminal defense. Due to the complexities of federal regulations, white collar crime is often considered an ambiguous area of law, one constantly setting legal precedents. Unlike most attorneys, Thomas C. Roswell’s breadth of knowledge regarding white collar crime spans over two decades. He has successfully represented criminal defendants throughout the Atlanta Metropolitan Area, including clients facing charges for a variety of white collar crimes.

What Exactly Is A White Collar Crime?

When most people think of criminal law, they usually envision so-called “street crimes,” such as robbery, murder, rape, or other violent or intrusive acts. In contrast, white collar crime is a category of crimes that involves non-violent courses of conduct that principally involve financial transactions. The term white collar derives from the nature of the categories in which these crimes fit - business and government professions. In general terms, white collar crimes include:

  • Bribery or public corruption.
  • Embezzlement.
  • Insider trading.
  • Securities, insurance, credit card, lending, and government benefit fraud.
  • Antitrust violations.
  • Tax evasion.
  • Real estate and securities scams.
  • Internet scams.
  • Other acts which involve deception for the purpose of appropriating money.

White collar crimes may also include environmental crimes: although there is no theft involved, a company may be accused of trying to skirt an environmental law to obtain an economic benefit or to avoid the economic impact of complying with the law.

My family and I moved to Roswell from Chicago over ten years ago. At that time, we were referred to Tom to assist us with some of our legal needs. Since then he has become a trusted friend we consider to be our family attorney. The comfort in being able to speak candidly with him and know that he understands our concerns is invaluable. Tom is a man of integrity, vast experience (more than 25 years), who has an exceptional knowledge of the law. Impeccable ethics and an unparalleled work ethic make him an outstanding attorney who is capable, though, and diligent. I recommend him highly to anyone in need of sound legal counsel.

At all times for the duration of my case, Tom demonstrated professionalism, confidence, and honesty. At no point was I pressured to make any one decision over another, but Tom did his best to inform me about the consequences and benefits of all of my options. If he did not know some specific detail regarding my case, he made the effort to find out. Tom instantly exudes trustworthiness and was always in steady contact. I would recommend his services to anyone.
