Portland Fraud and White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers

Federal White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers in Oregon city

At Kohlmetz, Steen & Hanrahan, P.C., we provide exceptional criminal defense representation for all white collar and fraud-related charges at both the state and federal level. Federal white collar and fraud prosecutions tend to be larger and more complex than their state court counterparts. Fraud and white collar cases are often complicated by the fact that they may be preceded by investigations conducted by state and/or federal civil agencies. It is not uncommon for people who are ultimately the target of a state or federal white collar criminal prosecution to begin cooperating with civil agency authorities to the detriment of their criminal cases. With so much at stake, it is imperative that your attorney be well-versed in both state and federal white collar cases, both criminal and civil.

Our Federal White Collar and Fraud Crimes Practice

Federal white collar and fraud-related prosecutions are some of the most complex and time-consuming criminal defense cases imaginable. Typically, these cases are brought federally because either the size and scope of the alleged criminal activity are enormous, or the amount of financial loss that is alleged to have occurred is very large. Often these cases are brought against multiple individuals and/or corporate entities operating throughout the United States and even abroad. More often than not, these cases are preceded by civil investigations conducted by agencies like the SEC, the FDIC or the IRS.

The most common white collar prosecutions in the District of Oregon are mail and wire fraud mortgage-related fraud, and bank fraud. These cases typically involve schemes to defraud lenders or financial institutions through false statements made to a financial institution. There are also a significant number of tax-related fraud cases brought in the district, running the gamut from simply filing false or fictitious person income tax returns to complicated schemes involving payroll taxes, shell corporations, unlawful tax shelters, and/or fraudulent nonprofit organizations.

In addition to our lawyers, it is common in our federal white collar practice to require the services of litigation support specialists, including discovery and document management specialists, certified forensic financial analysts and board-licensed private investigators. Because many time constraints can be imposed on the defense once criminal charges are brought, it is imperative that potential clients seek out legal help as soon as possible to ensure their interests are adequately protected.
