Tarrant County White Collar Crime Defense Lawyer
Criminal Defense Attorney for Fraud and Financial Crimes in Fort Worth, TX
Criminal activity can come in a wide variety of forms, and not every type of crime is an immediately obvious violation of the law. "White collar crimes" usually involve some form of illegal financial activity rather than a face-to-face act of violence or theft. However, even though these offenses may seem less harmful to their alleged victims, they are still investigated and prosecuted strongly by law enforcement officials at the state and federal levels. The potential consequences for these types of crimes can be severe, and anyone who is under investigation for white collar crimes or who has been accused of an offense should obtain legal representation.
Because white collar crimes typically have a financial component, these charges could result from activities performed during a person's business activities. In many cases, a business owner, executive, or manager may be accused of violating the law without realizing that they had done anything wrong, or a person may face charges because they are involved in illegal actions committed by a business partner or employee. Because these types of accusations can affect a person's reputation and a business's standing in the community, it is important to understand the exact nature of the alleged violations and the options for defense against these charges.
In many cases, white collar criminal charges include allegations of fraud, in which a person will be accused of deceptive practices or other activities meant to provide them with an illegal financial gain. These allegations may also involve bribery, embezzlement, money laundering, or forgery, and since so many modern business transactions take place electronically, a person may also be charged with internet or computer crimes. Depending on the extent of the alleged criminal activity and whether it took place across state lines or international borders, investigations by the FBI or SEC may result in federal criminal charges.
A conviction for white collar crimes can result in hefty fines, years of imprisonment, and the loss of one's personal and professional reputation.

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..."
