Complicated Charges Call For Sophisticated Legal Help

Although white collar crime does not have a strict definition, many people would classify it in roughly the same way. These are typically financial crimes (fraud and theft) that involve a higher level of complexity and sophistication.

At The Law Offices of Ryan Allen, we know that defending against complex allegations requires the help of a top-notch criminal defense firm. Our attorney has the knowledge and experience necessary to represent clients facing a wide range of charges, including:

  • Embezzlement
  • Credit and debit card fraud
  • Identity theft involving financial fraud
  • Identity theft involving non-financial fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Securities fraud and insider trading
  • Any offense listed under Arkansas' Computer Related Crimes Act

The Differences Between Offenses Can Be Subtle

Whether the case is prosecuted in state or federal court (our firm handles both), it is important to understand which details are relevant to the specific charges you may face. Under Arkansas law, for example, identity theft is broken into two categories: financial identity fraud and non-financial identity fraud (the latter referring to identity theft for purposes unrelated to direct financial gain). In both cases, the crimes can also be charged differently if the alleged victim was an elderly or disabled person.

Embezzlement is another example. In order for a crime to be considered embezzlement (as opposed to just theft or larceny), the alleged perpetrator needed to be in a fiduciary relationship with the alleged victim and must have obtained the property through that relationship.
