Charged With a White Collar Crime in Michigan?
The Law Firm of Frank Stanley, PC, brings more than 30 years of criminal defense experience to white collar crime cases. The firm has successfully represented clients in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and across the nation in these technically complex and often career-threatening felony cases.
Frank Stanley is a respected Grand Rapids, Michigan defense attorney who is not afraid to take these challenging cases to trial.
In one of many successes in white collar crime cases, the firm defended one of three business partners who ran a multimillion-dollar clothing business. The client was accused of embezzling more than $200,000. The firm took the case to trial. After two weeks, the firm asked the court to dismiss the case on the grounds that the prosecutor had not proven the charged crimes beyond a reasonable doubt. The case was dismissed and the client went home. Learn more about this and other successes.
Defense Against All White Collar Crimes
The term “white collar crime” is used to describe crimes that involve cheating or dishonesty. These crimes typically are committed by professionals or entrepreneurs under the cover of legitimate business activities and involve complex webs of evidence. There is a trend toward stricter punishment for white collar crimes, as people recognize the financial damage white collar criminals inflict on society. Conviction can result in enormous fines, payment of restitution and incarceration. Furthermore, careers are often destroyed in the process.
