DuPage County White Collar Crime Attorneys
Illinois Defense Lawyers if You Have Been Charged with Embezzlement or Fraud
The term "white collar crime" covers financial crimes, usually those involving large sums of money. The crime could be committed:
- Against a company (like embezzlement by an employee or money laundering);
- Against an individual (like credit card theft, identity theft, fraud, or a computer crime);
- By a company (like Medicare fraud); or
- By an individual (insider trading).
If you have been charged with a white collar crime, you face significant penalties, including long prison sentences if convicted. But with an aggressive Illinois white collar crime defense lawyer, you may find your charges reduced or dropped, or you may be eligible for alternative sentences.

Alternative Sentencing Options
A number of Illinois counties, like Cook County, Will County, Kane County, and McHenry County, have alternative sentencing options and felony diversion programs. When one of the root causes of a criminal activity is addiction or a behavioral problem - gambling addictions are one of the common causes of embezzlement - then a diversion program can be more effective.
Diversion programs are often used with non-violent, first-time offenders. They may include mandatory counseling, drug or alcohol treatment, probation, and education. Your defense lawyer will work to build the case for an alternative sentence.
