Course Description

This program was recorded on February 27, 2019

White collar cases typically involve non violent financial crimes that are assigned to special prosecution units from State Attorneys Offices or the Attorney General’s Office Statewide Prosecutors Office in state court or by experienced prosecutors from United States Attorneys Offices or the Department of Justice in federal court. That said, the likelihood that they will be subject to the appropriate amount of attention to detail is strong. That said, there is less chance of mistakes in both the government’s investigation and the prosecutors decisions. However, no case is prefect so there will be information and evidence can be discovered to support a defense. As such defense attorneys must devote the appropriate attention to the case in order to find the evidence that provides support of any potential defenses that exist. This seminar focuses on developing defense strategies in white collar cases. From the initial client interview to the coordination of a voluntary surrender to the trial or plea and sentencing this seminar will provide an outline of how to approach white collar cases from the defense side.
