Defense to White Collar Crime Charges in Colorado
“White collar” charges are those offenses that are associated with the nonviolent criminal acquisition of money. Often, these cases involve the financial operations of complex organizations in which the calculation of assets and juggling of finances can be almost impossible. While someone may make a poor judgment call in these circumstances, that does not necessarily mean he or she is a criminal.

What Makes a Crime White Collar?
Though it is nonviolent, white collar crime costs banks, corporations and ordinary people many billions of dollars every year. These losses occur both directly and through increased insurance premiums and bank fees.
The impact on consumers has led to stricter enforcement in Colorado. Examples of white collar crimes include:
- Real estate and mortgage fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Health care fraud
- Bank fraud
- Wire fraud and mail fraud
- Securities fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Check fraud
- HUD (Housing and Urban Development) and Medicare fraud
- Embezzlement, forgery, money laundering
It is important to note that many of the crimes listed above can be charged as felonies. Felony charges are very serious; your freedom is on the line. Make sure you hire an experienced, effective criminal defense law firm to defend your rights. Make sure you consider Gerash Steiner & Blanton, P.C.
How Gerash Steiner & Blanton, P.C., Can Help You
Unlike the process for many criminal matters, the process of investigating a “white collar” crime may be ongoing over a course of months or years. The result is that everyone involved in the matter, whether a target of the prosecution or not, lives under the shadow of a potential indictment. Even if you have not been charged, you should consult an experienced attorney the moment you find out that your name is involved in an investigation of this kind of crime. Acting without a lawyer means running the risk that you may say or do something that could later damage your case.
Denver white collar crime attorney Daniel Gerash will not only protect your rights during the investigation, but he will also keep you informed about all the developments in the case as a whole. This allows you to focus on your life and your family. He is also an experienced negotiator who can work with prosecutors and investigators to ensure that you are not the subject of undue scrutiny or false accusations.
