Collin County White Collar Crime Defense Lawyer
Attorney for Fraud and Internet Crimes in McKinney and Plano
When people refer to crimes or criminal activity, they often think of violent offenses such as robbery or murder. However, a person may face criminal charges for a wide variety of other reasons, and the consequences for non-violent offenses can be just as severe as for violent crimes, including steep fines, imprisonment, and the requirement to pay restitution. Certain types of offenses are known as "white collar crimes," and they may involve violations of both state and federal laws.
White collar crimes typically involve some form of financial wrongdoing, and they may take place alongside legitimate business activities. Because of this, a person could face criminal charges even if they were not aware they had done anything wrong or because of the actions of a partner or business associate. Because of the complex nature of these offenses and the long-term repercussions they can have on your life, freedom, career, and reputation, you will want to speak to an attorney the moment you learn that you may be under investigation.
Fraud is one of the most common types of white collar crime, and it may take the form of insurance fraud, tax fraud, healthcare fraud, or securities fraud. Charges of money laundering may result from the association of a legitimate business with criminal activity. Other white collar criminal charges may include embezzlement, forgery, or computer and internet crimes. Because these activities may affect people in multiple states or countries, they may result in federal criminal charges, and they may be investigated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) or Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
If you have been charged with a white collar crime, or if you are under investigation for these types of offenses, you will want to work with an experienced attorney to determine your best options for defense.

Darlina Crowder is one of the most kind and professional lawyers I have experienced. Not only is it evident that she cares about your case, she also cares about you as a person. She gives opportunities to those who would never have a chance because of her bilingual skill set. Some other lawyers would be content with only taking easy cases. But not her, she works her hardest to ensure everyone is given a fair opportunity. Her incredible history is a testimony to how great of an attorney she is...

"Darlina Crowder is an incredible trial lawyer! She is the only lawyer I would recommend. I was charged and indicted with the most heinous crimes anyone could be accused of. 13 counts of Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child, Indecency with a Child & Sexual Assault of a child. From the day I hired her she was very attentive, caring and compassionate. She never once stopped fighting for me! I had 2 jury trials. The first was a mistrial 10-2 not guilty...
"I recently retained the services of Darlina Crowder. I got myself into a legal bind and am sure glad I found her. I am 47 a professional and have never been in trouble in my life. I was facing the possibility of serving prison time and am very thankful to her for seeing the truth and defending me. Her powerful demeanor and presence in the court room, without question, helped the jury to decide my fate. I was found NOT GUILTY of Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. I would whole heartedly recommend her to anyone needing legal counsel."

"I am super pleased with the prompt and professional service I received by Attorney Crowder! During the time that I needed her services I was in the police academy and was falsely accused of a crime. This crime lead to my removal from the academy and threatened my freedom. She immediately new that it was a personal attack on me. I took the charges as a slap in the face because I gave up a six figure income to help serve my community..."
