White collar crime investigations typically last months before people are indicted. At some point, prosecutors will approach suspects and offer a plea arrangement in exchange for testimony against others. Usually, conspiracy charges are introduced that allow for the suspension of the hearsay rules at trial. As a result, if you don't have an attorney defending your rights and actively taking steps to redirect or preempt an investigation against you, prosecutors may charge you with crimes you are not chiefly responsible for. At Stiller Law, we work with our own investigators, forensic accountants, and computer experts in defending people charged with white collar crimes.
Before talking to investigators, contact white collar crime attorneys at Stiller Law today to schedule a free consultation to discuss your case. If you've been called before a grand jury, we can sit outside the courtroom and provide counsel to you should you need legal counsel at that time.

Obstruction of Justice Charges and White Collar Crime
When people learn they are under investigation for a white collar crime, they may remove or destroy records, withhold documents, or claim not to have the information requested. Doing so, however, constitutes an obstruction of justice.
As a result, people have been sent to jail on obstruction charges even though they were found innocent of the charges originally filed against them. If brought in during the investigative phase of a case or shortly after you've been indicted, we can help you cooperate with investigators without incriminating yourself.
