Common Factors in White-Collar Crimes
- Intent: You must have intended to commit the crime. You are not guilty of embezzlement, for example, simply because you made an honest clerical error.
- Capability: You must have been able to commit the crime. It is almost impossible for a court to convict you if you can show that you lacked the ability to commit the crime.
- Fraud: In almost all successful prosecutions for white-collar crimes, the defendant must have used, or attempted to use, some form of dishonesty, fraud, or trickery to achieve their purposes.

In which court are white-collar crimes prosecuted?
Normally, it is the federal government that prosecutes white-collar crimes wherever you live. The federal courthouse for the Philadelphia region (known as the Eastern District), for example, is located on Market Street. The federal Court of Appeals sits in the same building.
Will I have trouble finding a job after being convicted of a white-collar crime?
Most likely, especially if you committed a crime against your employer. Under certain circumstances, you might petition the government to seal your criminal record. This would allow you to conceal it from potential employers.
How much does a white-collar crime attorney cost in Philadelphia?
Legal representation for a white-collar crime doesn’t come cheap. Fees vary widely, and so do fee structures. For this reason, an average would be meaningless. Some attorneys charge a flat fee per case. Others charge a flare fee for each court appearance. Still, others charge an hourly rate ($400 per hour, for example).
