White Collar Crime

You have worked long, hard hours to become successful in your chosen career. Your success is built on a rock-solid reputation. Now you seem to be losing everything because you’ve been accused of a white-collar crime. Don’t let an accusation tarnish your reputation; contact Kearns Rotolo Law to represent you.

Victor Rotolo successfully argues before the NJ Supreme Court in a case of constitutional import, in which the Court ruled that a DUI conviction cannot be used in any later DUI case for sentencing purposes if, (1) the individual plead or was found guilty, and (2) the individual was not advised of his/her right to counsel and, as to indigent individuals, the right to assigned counsel.

An accusation of a white-collar crime is a very serious matter with potentially lifelong implications. You must take every step possible to obtain the best resolution in order to minimize the potential devastation that a record of a white-collar crime can impose on your life. The first step is to obtain a good criminal attorney.

As experienced criminal defense attorneys, Anthony Kearns and Victor Rotolo are advocates for you in the courtroom. Their combination of experience enables Anthony Kearns and Victor Rotolo to defend their clients.

According to a paper published by the U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Criminal Justice Information services (CJIS) Division, the Bureau has defined white-collar crime as illegal acts, which are characterized by deceit, concealment, or violation of trust but are not violent in nature.

Whether you are an individual that has been charged with a white-collar crime or you work at a company that is accused of white-collar crimes, adept legal representation is critically important. Once a reputation is tarnished by allegations of a white-collar offense, what was a once-solid reputation can be damaged. For businesses, revenues and profits are impacted.

If you are being charged with a white-collar crime or your company is accused of white-collar criminal activity, you need effective legal representation that will minimize the possible devastating impact that a conviction can cause. Since white-collar crimes are punishable by the imposition of a fine, time in prison or house arrest, an accusation cannot be taken lightly. It is definitely time to retain the services of a competent criminal defense attorney.
