Defending Against White Collar Criminal Charges

If you have learned that you are the target of an investigation or have been charged with a federal crime, you must take action to ensure that your rights are being protected at all times throughout the process. An experienced attorney may be all that stands between you and time in federal prison.

At McAdoo Gordon & Associates, P.C., located in Washington, D.C., our lawyers have years of courtroom experience defending against white collar crimes. Aggressive defenders of the clients' rights and always current on the latest developments in the law, we defend individuals and companies in Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia.

Types Of Cases That We Handle

A number of federal agencies are charged with enforcing white collar crime law, including the FBI, the IRS, the U.S. Secret Service, the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency. We defend individual and corporate clients on federal and state charges at the trial and appellate level for white collar (or "economic") crimes such as:

  • Fraud, including contract fraud, computer fraud, government benefits fraud, credit card fraud, telemarketing fraud, bankruptcy fraud, insurance fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, internet fraud, identity theft, pension fund fraud and MediCare fraud
  • Tax crimes, including tax fraud and tax evasion
  • Securities fraud and insider trading
  • Bribery, kickbacks and corruption
  • Money laundering, counterfeiting and forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Antitrust violations, commercial espionage and theft of trade secrets
  • RICO
  • Perjury, false statements and claims, and obstruction of justice
  • Environmental crimes

Even if you have a company lawyer available to defend against these charges, you need to make sure you understand the potential impact that this will have upon your entire situation. A conviction of a crime could result in the loss of security clearance or the inability to enter into contracts with a government agency.

Our extensive experience in security procedures ensures a unified defense when a legal problem could negatively affect the big picture. Our lawyers will help you understand the options that are truly available to you, and do everything that we can to reduce the consequences that may result in the event of a conviction.
