Chattanooga White Collar Crime Lawyer
Accused of a white collar crime in Tennessee?
The field of criminal defense that involves federal financial investigations and representing a financial case in federal court is known as "white collar defense." In these types of cases, federal prosecutors will often indict the accused individual with charges involving a wide range of activities concerning financial transactions, wire or mail transactions, and banking activities. Bank fraud is often named as the broad allegation although the investigation may actually examine a series of suspect business transactions.
Conspiracy is the companion charge that often lurks just beneath the surface in these cases. More than 50 years ago, renowned 20th century attorney Clarence Darrow complained about the vague suspicion that accompanies conspiracy charges - yet the danger of these undefined accusations remains even today. Don't face these serious federal charges without an attorney who has experience in white collar defense and can help you protect your future and your reputation. Early involvement by an experienced Chattanooga criminal defense attorney is essential for evaluating the proper course of action for a client. Lee Davis and Bryan Hoss can represent you if you are indicted or are under investigation for white collar crimes such as:

Retain a Tennessee Criminal Defense Attorney
Is the government seeking documents from you? Are you or your employees being subpoenaed to appear before a federal grand jury? Have you been interviewed by a federal investigatory agency? Your Sixth Amendment right to counsel and Fifth Amendment right to remain silent are always important in criminal defense cases - and perhaps never more so than in these initial contacts with the government. Lying to a federal agent is a separate offense from the investigation itself. Retaining skillful counsel to accompany you to these meetings is the best course of action, especially when you are innocent and have done nothing wrong. Not everyone sees all complex financial transactions from the same perspective.
