Learn about defense options for white collar crimes

White collar crimes come either from intentional actions that a person performed that he or she knew were illegal or from actions that the person didn't know were illegal when he or she did them. No matter which one of these instances your case falls under, you have the right to present a defense against the charges.

Identity theft crimes often come with ample evidence

There are a number of different type of fraudulent acts that can occur. One of these is identity theft. This is a criminal act on the federal level, as well as the state level.

The line between the two activities can often seem unclear, though, so it can be helpful to know exactly where the IRS draws the line if you are going to be responsible for business taxes.

Of course, there can be more to the story than what meets the eye.

Mortgage fraud is a very serious matter

Mortgages are sometimes the biggest loans that a person will take out in a lifetime.
