What To Do When You Are Accused Of White Collar Crimes
White collar crime charges often start off as rumors and reviews of irregularities in accounting at a company or nonprofit organization. Were you accused of fraud or embezzlement in the context of your position of leadership over financial resources at your job or community organization? Do not let a day go by without getting legal advice and advocacy.
Some people who get caught up in white collar crime cases postpone taking action on the belief that the accusations will fade away. This rarely happens. If you or the accounts that you are responsible for are under investigation, you should get legal counsel now.
At Johnston, Stannard, Klesner, Burbidge & Fitzgerald, P.L.C., we have helped clients get white collar crime cases resolved without charges being filed at all. A resolution may include restitution if funds are missing without explanation.

Our clients in Iowa City and elsewhere in Johnson County come to us after they have been accused or arrested on suspicion of:
