Howard A. Kurtz, Partner

Embezzlement, obtaining property by false pretenses and health care fraud are among the types of charges that fall under the umbrella of white collar crime.  Ever since Bernie Madoff and his multi-billion dollar Ponzi scheme cost thousands of investors billions of dollars, police and prosecutors have cracked down hard on all kinds of white-collar cases, even smaller ones.  If you are charged with white-collar crime, this probably isn't news to you.  Which might not know is that these cases frequently involve types of evidence that require a defense attorney with a pretty special skill set.

A good defense attorney needs to understand and have experience with accounting, handwriting analysis, and computer forensics in order to effectively represent clients charged with these types of offenses.  We've represented hundreds of people charged with fraud or embezzlement.  I personally handled these types of cases since 1992.
