An accusation or charge of white collar crime, even if the defendant is ultimately exonerated, can be devastating to a firm's reputation, revenue and long-standing relationships with other businesses. Once a company's image and good name is ruined by allegations of business misconduct, it is difficult to recover and regain the confidence of clients and customers. The same is true for an employee that is charged with illegal business practices.
White Collar Crime: A Definition
The term "white collar crime" describes non-violent crimes committed in the workplace by professionals for personal financial gain. When a business person perpetrates a white collar crime, he or she uses some form of fraud or deception to acquire funds or property.
White collar crimes may be prosecuted at the state or federal level, depending upon the crime that the defendant has been charged with. If an individual is convicted of committing a white collar crime, or business crime, the punishment may include monetary fines, a prison sentence, or house arrest. These enormous penalties can take away your personal freedom and can often destroy your reputation as a respected business person.

I'm a first time DUI offender. Mr. Parlow was outstanding. He was very caring during my time of need. Not only did he get me into ARD, but he also was able to get my BAC reduced from .159 to .099 to avoid a 30 day suspension of my license. This was very critical for me. I am able to get my wife to her appointments without uber or lyft. Also I'm able to continue my duties where i am employed. Excellent job Michael!
Paul Lang was not only extremely friendly and professional, but exceptionally personable and helpful. This was my first (and hopefully last) infraction with the law and he helped guide me through all my paperwork and hearings in a clear, positive, and professional manner. He also went out of his way to make sure I was not only feeling ok mentally, but making positive decisions in my life. He is a wonderful person and I would definitely highly recommend him to anyone who needs legal assistance!
Cannot say enough amazing things about Michael Parlow. There is absolutely no other lawyer to contact if you need representation. He is thorough, organized and extremely flexible. He helped and guided me through the whole process and took time even during the weekends to accommodate me.
