Dallas County White Collar Crime Defense Attorney

Lawyers for Computer Crimes, Fraud, and Money Laundering in Garland and Irving

The penalties for a criminal conviction can be very serious, even if an offense does not involve a violent crime. In many cases, alleged offenders are charged with "white collar crimes" that involve illegal activities of a financial nature or which were meant to defraud or cause harm to someone else. The nature of these charges can often be very complex, and both state and federal law enforcement officials and prosecutors may become involved in an investigation. In these cases, representation from an experienced attorney is crucial.

White collar crimes often involve some form of fraud, but they can also include forgery, embezzlement, bribery, political corruption, tax evasion, or money laundering. When an alleged offense involves a person's business or professional activities, an investigation could not only result in criminal consequences for themselves, but it could also affect business partners and employees, and it can impact a person's reputation and standing in the community. If interstate or international commerce was involved, a person could face federal criminal charges.

Because white collar criminal charges often involve the use of computer systems, online networks, or other electronic devices, they may be charged as computer crimes. These offenses could include identity theft, data breaches, accusations of "hacking" or illegal access of computers or networks, spreading computer viruses or "malware," or participating in online scams.

Defense Against Fraud Charges

Many white collar crimes involve some form of fraud, in which a person uses deception or misrepresentation for the purpose of monetary gain. Some common types of fraud include:

  • Insurance fraud - A person may make a false claim in order to obtain insurance benefits. For example, a business owner may intentionally destroy company-owned property in order to collect an insurance payout.
  • Healthcare fraud - Medical professionals may falsely bill an insurance company for services that were not actually provided. This may include Medicare/Medicaid fraud, which seeks to illegally obtain money through government benefits.
  • Credit card fraud - Any use of another person's credit card without their permission can result in fraud charges. Identity theft charges may also apply if another person's information is used to open a credit card account.
  • Tax fraud - Falsifying information provided to the government in order to avoid paying taxes could result in federal criminal charges.
  • Securities fraud - These offenses involve the use of deceptive practices related to financial markets. They may include insider trading or providing false information in order to manipulate stock prices.
  • Check fraud - This may include using forgery to write checks in another person's name or create falsified checks, as well as issuing checks with no intent of honoring them.

  • 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 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.

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..."
