Federal White Collar Crimes Attorney
Criminal Defense Against State and Federal Fraud Charges
A white-collar crime can carry a stiff penalty similar to a violent crime conviction, including prison. Because a white-collar crime charge such as fraud or embezzlement often involves complex transactions and interstate commerce, federal charges could be forthcoming.
Criminal Attorney Mark C. Cogan, based in Portland, Oregon, has more than 40 years of criminal defense experience. What does this mean for you? It means that when you are facing a felony charge and conviction for a white collar crime, selecting our Portland law firm to represent you is an excellent choice. We have represented clients charged with:
A Representative Case: Our client was involved in international fraud as a result of an off-shore investment scam based in Grenada. The $700 million fraud charge and subsequent investigation by the IRS and FBI led to federal charges. Our client was the girlfriend of the scam’s primary defendant. Although she was investigated and sought as a federal witness, we were able to keep her from being charged and she served no jail time.
