Attorney Assisting Clients Charged With Securities Fraud, Tax Fraud, and Other White Collar Crimes

The word "criminal" is usually associated with violent crimes such as murder, assault, or robbery. But while non-violent crimes may get fewer headlines, they are still taken very seriously, and people charged with white collar crimes involving deception and illicit financial gain face consequences that are just as severe as the punishments for more high profile violent crimes.

Defending Against White Collar Criminal Charges

With over 40 years of experience successfully defending clients in a wide variety of criminal cases, Attorney Stephen M. Komie provides the knowledge and understanding of financial investigations and law enforcement procedures that you need when faced with white collar criminal charges. The attorneys of Komie and Associates can provide a robust defense against allegations of white collar crimes, including:

  • Securities fraud - Thoroughly reviewing documents and financial records to combat allegations of insider trading or misrepresentation of financial information to influence investments.
  • Tax fraud - Applying knowledge of the Internal Revenue Code and IRS investigation methods to determine the validity of specific allegations and defend against claims that a client knowingly violated the tax code.
  • Mortgage fraud - Reviewing documents and financial transactions involved in alleged mortgage fraud cases and demonstrating reasonable doubt that information was purposely falsified or that the client intended to commit fraud.
  • Bankruptcy fraud - Demonstrating that a client did not intend to falsify documents or conceal assets when filing for bankruptcy.
  • Counterfeiting - Showing that a client was not aware that money, goods, or documents were not genuine, or that allegedly counterfeit items were not substantially similar to legitimate currency, documents, or products.
  • Forgery - Challenging handwriting analysis evidence on allegedly forged documents, or showing that a client was not aware that documents were false.
  • Embezzlement - Demonstrating that a client did not knowingly intend to deprive someone else of their money or property, or showing that there is reasonable doubt about a client's intent to defraud an alleged victim.
  • Credit card fraud - Showing that the alleged fraud was the result of mistaken identity or malicious actions by computer viruses or hackers.
  • Money laundering - Demonstrating a lack of evidence that a client intended to illegally disguise the origin of money and that the money was obtained as the result of a crime, or showing that a client was not aware that money was obtained illegally.
