Daytona Beach White Collar Crime Lawyer

The term “white collar” may be outdated in the sense that clothing does not define the crime, but members of the Florida criminal justice system have remained steadfast in pursuing those who violate the law. Many offenses commonly grouped together as white collar crimes are delineated under Florida criminal laws on Fraudulent Practices, so they share a common element: Making false or misleading statements to misappropriate property or something of value. However, the varied nature of white collar crimes makes these cases extremely complicated.

The O’Mara Law Group team has represented numerous clients in white collar crimes cases, and a core practice area at the firm is defending fraud charges. Our Daytona Beach white collar crime lawyers are prepared to assist from pre-arrest stages to your trial and take advantage of all opportunities to fight the allegations. Please contact us to set up a consultation regarding the specifics, but a legal summary is informative.

Basics on Florida White Collar Crimes

The term generally encompasses offenses related to financial fraud, as well as conspiracies among multiple players to further a fraudulent scheme. Florida’s definition of white collar crimes includes:

  • Misconduct in connection with check cashing and other money services;
  • False statements linked to theft and robbery crimes;
  • Forgery and counterfeiting;
  • Bribery of a public official and misuse of a public office;
  • Racketeering under RICO and Florida’s RICO;
  • Identity theft;
  • Fraud involving insurance, mortgages, health care, PPP, securities, banking; and
  • Many others.

In Florida, the statutes also include a provision on aggravated white collar crime. Harsher penalties apply to a scheme that involves at least two offenses of the same nature, as well as scams against multiple victims and the elderly.

Defending Your Civil Rights

Another common factor that white collar crimes share is that authorities typically conduct an in-depth investigation before pursuing charges. You might not know that you are the subject of a probe, but you still have rights. Police misconduct, such as unlawful search and seizure, could provide grounds for a motion to exclude improperly obtained evidence. Without this essential proof, the prosecutor may not have enough to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.

Our Daytona Beach white collar crime attorneys at the O’Mara Law Group will explore all possible defense opportunities and other strategies to support your position. Our tasks may include:

  • Conducting an investigation and collecting evidence;
  • Working with forensic experts;
  • Filing motions related to evidence and dismissing the charges;
  • Using discovery tools to get evidence in the possession of the prosecutor;
  • Taking depositions of potential witnesses;
  • Attending all court hearings and appearances;
  • Discussing details regarding a possible plea bargain agreement; and
  • Representing you at trial.
