Houston, Texas White Collar Crime Defense Lawyers
The phrase white collar crime is most often used to define state and federal felony offenses such as fraud, embezzlement and identity theft. These crimes are typically non-violent and often include a complex scheme that may appear to have no single victim. Generally, white collar crimes are committed by executives, business people and professionals.
