Minneapolis White-Collar Crime Defense
Fighting for Your Rights in State and Federal White-Collar Crime Cases
Known for being some of the most complex cases in criminal law, “white-collar crimes” are often perpetrated by professionals and may involve charges like fraud, extortion, and internet crimes. Although these crimes are non-violent by definition, white-collar crimes can still have serious and wide-ranging repercussions for the accused. They also tend to affect many people at once and involve complex, multi-layered investigations at both the state and federal levels.
Because federal prosecutors are well-equipped and have access to more resources than state prosecutors, it’s especially important to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney with experience in federal trials when you are facing these charges. With two Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists on staff and over a century of combined experience, the Minneapolis white-collar crime defense lawyers at Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. are ready to help you fight for your rights.

What Makes White-Collar Crime Cases Complex?
From embezzlement to money laundering, white-collar criminal charges pose unique challenges for defendants and their attorneys. This is because they often involve a veritable labyrinth of electronic records, business agreements, financial statements, and disclosures.
With the complexity of most modern transactions, it’s easy to see how a simple mistake or poor business agreement could be misconstrued as a crime – but unfortunately, both state and federal prosecutors are all too eager to make an example out of alleged white-collar criminals. Whether your case involves a Minnesota bribery charge or an alleged federal money-laundering scheme, you need to have top-tier representation in your corner for a chance at a fair outcome.
Common examples of white-collar crimes include:
- Healthcare fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
- Mail fraud
- Money laundering
- Wire fraud
- Internet crimes
State Crimes vs. Federal Crimes
Although most people assume that white-collar crimes are only prosecuted in federal court, the truth is that state prosecutors are just as likely to pursue charges for these crimes. However, when a state agency can’t afford to pursue a more complex case, they may defer to the appropriate federal court (assuming that federal law has actually been broken.) That is why charges like bank fraud, securities fraud, and federal income tax offenses are often brought to federal court even when they also involve state law violations.
