Johnson County White Collar Criminal Defense Attorney
What Constitutes a White Collar Crime?
White collar crimes are normally committed in an office space and don't generally involve violence. While white collar crimes may seem "less important" because they are committed in peaceful workplaces, they are extremely illegal. Most white collar crimes have to do with deceit.
The following are all different forms of white collar crimes that can be harshly prosecuted:
- Lying on documents
- Failing to file documents
- Filtering illegal money through a business
- Tricking government organizations in order to collect benefits
At Martin & Wallentine, LLC, we understand that not all white collar crimes are intentional.

If you have been charged with a white collar crime, let our team defend you in the courts and use our creative strategies to advocate for your innocence.
