What Are White-Collar Crimes and How Can Our Overland Park White-Collar Crime Lawyers Help?

White-collar crimes are non-violent offenses that are financially motivated and typically involve deceit or a breach of trust. Examples include:

At the federal level, these crimes are often investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Securities and Exchanges Communication (SEC), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. At the state level, the Kansas Attorney General’s Office is often involved in white-collar criminal investigations and prosecutions.

The Johnson County District Attorney’s Office has a White Collar Crime Unit specifically devoted to the investigation and prosecution of:

JHC’s Overland Park white-collar criminal defense attorneys defend clients against all manner of white-collar criminal charges.

Our Overland Park White-Collar Crime Lawyers Have the Experience You Need

With decades of experience defending clients charged with white-collar crimes, our Overland Park white-collar criminal defense lawyers have the knowledge and skills you need. We have defended politicians, medical and healthcare providers, financial professionals, and business owners across the state of Kansas.

Our team of Overland Park white-collar criminal defense attorneys is well known for attaining favorable outcomes for white-collar criminal defendants through exhaustive independent investigation and strategic advocacy. Furthermore, understanding the differences between federal and state white-collar investigations, prosecution, trial, and sentencing is a vital, yet rare, skill set. Our attorneys are fluent in these differences, which might make all the difference in the world in the outcome of your case.

We also adeptly manage situations in which our clients have multiple cases pending—in state and federal court and sometimes both civil and criminal. Conduct that violates state and federal laws can be prosecuted at the same time. And it is not unusual for civil regulatory agencies to refer a matter to criminal investigators—even when you are cooperating with an administrative proceeding.

Government Investigation Defense

Our Overland Park white-collar criminal defense lawyers also help clients dealing with government investigations that may result in criminal charges. We advise clients as they cooperate with criminal and civil investigations by federal agencies and state agencies, including the Department of Justice and the Kansas Attorney General’s Office.

Civil agencies often investigate issues that overlap with the criminal arena. For example, civil regulators are often the first to address alleged healthcare fraud issues. Do not make the mistake of believing a compliance issue that begins as a civil investigation will stay with the civil agency. Information can be freely shared with criminal investigators. And, any time fraud is an issue, a criminal action is possible. We advise business owners during the civil investigation and disciplinary process to guard against and mitigate any criminal charges that may arise.

More About Our Criminal Defense Practice Areas


If I cooperate with the civil investigation, can I avoid criminal charges?

Maybe, but there is no guarantee. Whether a civil investigation stays civil often depends on the scope of the wrongdoing. There are times when criminal authorities are satisfied with changed business procedures and the payment of civil fines, but that will not work in every situation. It may come down to the evidence against you, too. Criminal cases require a higher standard of proof than civil cases. JHC’s experienced white-collar criminal defense attorneys can evaluate the specific facts of your civil case and discuss your criminal exposure.

Who prosecutes white collar crimes?

At the federal level, white-collar crimes are prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys. In some larger scale cases, a Department of Justice trial attorney may be assigned to the prosecution team.
In Kansas state courts, the local district attorney may prosecute the case, or an assistant attorney general may handle it.

What is restitution?

Part of a defendant’s sentence in a criminal case involving financial loss to a victim is a restitution order directing the defendant to compensate the victim for the loss he or she caused. Restitution is different from a fine, in that it is not intended to be punitive but to make the victim “whole.”
