New Jersey White Collar Crimes Attorney
South Jersey White-Collar Criminal Defense Attorney
Non-violent crimes that are typically motivated by money are often referred to as “white-collar” crimes. And although these crimes may not seem to cause the same harm as violent crimes, the consequences of a conviction may be as severe or, in some cases, more severe than other charges.
If you have been accused of fraud, embezzlement, extortion, corruption, or any other type of white-collar crime, you need a skilled defense attorney who has extensive experience representing people in these types of complex cases. At the Law Office of Jason A. Volet, our South Jersey white-collar criminal defense attorney has argued more than 2,000 cases in his career. And as a former Monmouth County criminal prosecutor, Jason Volet has unique insights into how white-collar crimes are prosecuted in New Jersey.
If you have been accused of a crime, don’t give the prosecution any additional time to build a case against you. Let our knowledgeable white-collar criminal defense attorney evaluate your case for free today. Contact us now to schedule a no-cost, confidential consultation.
What Are the Common Types of White-Collar Crimes?
The white-collar crimes category is a broad one, encompassing a wide variety of both state and federal charges. Unfortunately, some people may not even realize their actions could be interpreted as a crime. However, charges can result regardless of whether or not a person understood and acted intentionally.
Some of the common types of white-collar criminal charges our firm defends against include:
- Forgery and Embezzlement
- Identity Theft
- Money Laundering
- Public Corruption
- Copyright Infringement and Piracy
- Bank Fraud
- Check and Credit Card Fraud
- Health Care Fraud
- Internet Fraud and Cybercrimes
- Mail Fraud
- Wire Fraud
- Tax Evasion
- Insider Trading
- Securities Fraud and Racketeering
- Employee Theft
- Environmental Crimes
Whatever criminal charge you may be facing, it is crucial that you take action immediately to protect your rights and maintain your innocence. Particularly if you are facing both federal and state charges, you need a white-collar criminal defense attorney with experience in both arenas and a commitment to making sure your side of the story is heard.

What Are Potential Penalties for White-Collar Crimes in New Jersey?
The penalties for white-collar crimes in New Jersey can range in severity, depending on the charges you are facing. People convicted of white-collar crimes may be sentenced to:
- Prison or Jail. Even though white-collar crimes are not violent and don’t necessarily cause the physical harm that gun- and drug-related crimes can cause, a conviction can still result in a sentence of incarceration.
- House Arrest. A person may be sentenced to home confinement instead of jail or prison for a white-collar crime. Under house arrest, a person’s travel outside the home is limited, and he or she must wear an electronic monitor at all times.
- Probation. A sentence of probation would come with certain conditions that a person has to meet. This could include reporting regularly to a probation officer, maintaining employment or attending school, or restricting access to the Internet.
- Fines. A white-collar crime conviction can result in fines climbing into the thousands of dollars, on top of other punishments levied.
- Restitution. A person can also be ordered to pay back victims who were financially harmed. This could be ordered in addition to the fines.
Even after people convicted of white-collar crimes have “paid their debt,” their conviction can haunt them as they search for jobs or try to form new personal relationships. That’s why our dedicated New Jersey white-collar crime defense attorney fights aggressively from the beginning to push for the charges to be downgraded or dropped. Even if a conviction is unavoidable, our aggressive legal team will continue to fight by arguing for fairness and leniency in sentencing.
