COMMON WHITE-COLLAR CRIMES
There are several common types of white-collar crimes that our firm sees. Some of those are as follows:
- Extortion: Extortion is similar to blackmail, in that when someone commits an act of extortion, they essentially tell someone to give them money “or else.”
- Ponzi Schemes: A Ponzi scheme is when a person gets others to invest in something that doesn’t exist. Often, the person running the scheme will “pay back” investors with other investors’ money, making them think they’re seeing a profit. However, these schemes ultimately only benefit the person running them.
- Corporate Fraud: Corporate fraud is when a company lies about its assets or value in an effort to make even more money, it is considered an act of corporate fraud.
- Embezzlement: Embezzlement is when a person either in a position of power or trust misappropriates a company’s funds to his or her own benefit. For example, if a store manager funnels company funds into his or her own bank account, he or she may be charged with embezzlement.
COMMON PUNISHMENTS FOR WHITE-COLLAR CRIMES
Unfortunately, those convicted of white-collar crimes can face a wide array of potentially life-altering penalties, as in most cases, white-collar crimes are considered felonies. Some of the most common punishments for white-collar crimes that our firm sees are as follows:
- Years in jail or prison
- Heavy fines
- Community confinement
- Home detention
- Supervised release

José Báez is an excellent Attorney. He helped me through one of the toughest times in my life. He gave me support and was very professional and of high quality. José was always accessible and always returns my calls without delay. I just can’t say enough about José Báez. Anybody who’s been injured in a truck accident, or any other accident should definitely hire José Báez. I strongly recommend Mr. Báez.
- Elizabeth S.
Not only have I had the pleasure of working alongside Jose, but I’ve also been on the receiving end of his handling of the transference of my father’s estate. Jose and the Baez Legal Group demonstrated a kind of versatility, accountability, and dedication rarely seen outside of large international law firms. He handles a wide variety of cases with seeming ease, often surprising both his clients and I with the scope of his knowledge of different legal disciplines. Jose is not one of the myriads of lawyers that always seem too busy to allocate the proper amount of care and time to their clients; in fact, he was often in the habit of reaching out first, even if just to see how we’re doing. Should you wish to receive an unprecedented amount of excellence in the handling of your case, the Baez Legal Group should be your first and only resort.

Jose stuck with me in a very difficult case that many other lawyers would not even take on. It was a three-year battle and luckily with Jose’s help I was not charged criminally. Jose pays very close attention to details and his responses to the opposing side were thorough and full of substance.
