Frequently Asked Questions

  • Questions

  • What Is a White Collar Crime?


    While the term has evolved over the years, “white collar crimes” are typically offenses involving the use of deceit or coercion for the purpose of monetary or professional gain. Examples can include fraud, bribery, embezzlement, and forgery. While these crimes are typically distinct from violent offenses, do not make the mistake of thinking that punishments are any less severe. If you have been charged with a crime, contact our firm immediately.

  • Are White Collar Crimes Prosecuted in State Or Federal Court?


    Many “white collar” crimes violate both state and federal laws. How and by what authority a specific offense is prosecuted can depend on factors including where a crime was committed, the involved parties, and the severity of the actions in question. The structure of your case can differ significantly depending on where it is prosecuted. At Dhar Law, LLP, we can help you understand the nature of your case as well as how to overcome the specific challenges which may lie ahead.

  • Will I Be Charged with a Felony or Misdemeanor?


    White collar crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the circumstances and severity of an alleged offense. Typically, lesser crimes are classified as misdemeanors. The more serious offenses are classified as felonies, and can carry harsh sentences which are served within state or federal prison. Our firm can help you to understand the nature of your case.
