A Trial Lawyer With The Right Experience

They Send People To Prison For White Collar Crimes

The days of soft sentences for fraud and financial crimes are long gone. The federal government devotes massive resources to combating fraud and corruption, and prosecutors seek long sentences to punish and deter white collar crimes.

I am David A. Wilson, a criminal defense attorney with 27 years of experience defending clients facing white collar offenses. The bulk of my practice is in federal court, representing people across Florida facing serious felony charges after federal agents start asking questions. I am confident that I can make a positive difference in the ultimate outcome of your case, whether you have been formally charged or suspect you are under investigation.

Experienced Defense For Fraud And Financial Crimes

I have represented business owners, managers and bookkeepers, corporate executives, health care professionals, accountants and other individuals accused of white collar crimes. I am equipped for the full spectrum of state and federal charges, including:

  • Tax fraud
  • Health care fraud
  • Medicaid fraud
  • Welfare fraud (SNAP/EBT)
  • Mail fraud and wire fraud
  • Bribery and public corruption
  • Identity theft
  • Forgery
  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering

Developing A Strategy For The Case

White collar prosecutions are fact-specific and often involve electronic trails such as email, text, cellphones and wire transfers. Sometimes a financial transaction raises red flags at a government agency. The government must prove that a crime occurred and criminal intent. There may be an innocent explanation. For example, I handled one of the largest tax fraud cases in Florida, which hinged on a change in the way the IRS processes online returns. Sometimes an informant or co-defendant points the finger for self-serving purposes.

I conduct a thorough examination of the evidence and the methods the U.S. government used to procure that evidence. Once I know the strength of the prosecution’s case and the potential penalties you face, we can explore negotiations or prepare for trial. I am fully aware of what is at stake for my clients including prison, a felony record, loss of professional licenses, and the future impact on employment and public reputation. I will forcefully assert your rights and make every effort to maintain your freedom or spare you from the harshest punishments.
