The Importance of Hiring The Law Men

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation, white-collar crime is estimated to cost the United States more than $300 billion annually. The penalties for white-collar offenses include fines, home detention, community confinement, paying the cost of prosecution, restitution, supervised release, and imprisonment ranging from 1 to 30 years.
