Criminal Defense Lawyers Defending White Collar Crimes

If you have been charged in state or federal court with a white collar crime such as fraud, employee theft or misconduct in public office, contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at the Monckton, Hembree & Humphries Law Firm in Myrtle Beach.

We apply our knowledge of the law and the criminal justice system to minimize your exposure to punishment and get the most out of the presumption of innocence that applies to every defendant.

Many fraud charges originate in federal grand jury indictments. People implicated in complex fraud conspiracies will often receive advance notice that they are of interest to federal law enforcement officials through a grand jury subpoena, a visit from federal investigators, or a demand to produce documents. The chance to obtain legal advice while a grand jury investigation is ongoing represents a valuable opportunity to improve your situation through early engagement with the prosecution.

We represent individuals and businesses facing such fraud charges:

  • Mortgage fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Medicaid or health care fraud
  • Real estate fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Consumer fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Forgery of checks, identification cards, or immigration documents
  • Breach of fiduciary duty with respect to a trust, an estate, or a power of attorney

Our lawyers also represent people facing charges of public corruption, misconduct in office, or misappropriation of public funds.

Even in cases where the evidence of guilt is too much to overcome, our experience and skill can protect you from the worst consequences of a conviction. Our ability to present a strong case in the sentencing phase can protect your eligibility for such non-jail options as restitution or community service.

Whether you're facing fraud charges, identity theft charges, or accusations of dishonesty in public office, our trial lawyers can help you. For a free consultation about your legal alternatives, contact the Monckton, Hembree & Humphries Law Firm, P.A., in Myrtle Beach.
