White Collar Crime

White collar cases are more complex and difficult than a routine criminal case.  Typically, white collar cases involve allegations of a crime committed by fraud or trickery, rather than by force or violence. They often involve intricate regulations, accounting issues, and huge amounts of paper. Government case agents assigned to analyze the voluminous financial documents that often typify a complex white collar criminal investigation may themselves be attorneys, or accountants, or both. Robert Richman is a criminal defense attorney with the expertise to handle complex white collar crime cases.

Robert Richman has represented individuals in a large number of white collar cases involving such charges as:

  • Securities fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Bank fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Tax evasion
  • Insurance fraud
  • Medicare fraud

Some examples of federal white collar cases Robert has handled include:

  • He won an acquittal on all charges following a month-long trial in a case alleging conspiracy to evade taxes, mail fraud, and ERISA fraud.

"I rank him among the top 5 lawyers against whom I have worked.  He is a supurb writer, an impassioned advocate, and a great trial lawyer who has worked his whole career almost exclusively in federal court."

"I have had relationships with many attorneys over the years, and Mr. Richman has one of the finest legal minds I have ever encountered — a fact which has made many of his associates refer to him as scary smart."

Federal Defense Lawyer

"Each time Robert tried a case, the first call I got was from the presiding Judge, complementing, and sometimes even raving about his performance.  That was followed by the jury's verdict, often in Robert's favor."  

Federal Judge

 "You are an ace in the deck."

Client

"At the end, when the verdict came in for full acquittal of all charges, Robert was as emotionally drained as I was.  I truly believe, that if not for his unshakeable belief in my innocence, his dedication and determination to represent me to the absolute best of his abilities, I would never have walked out of that courtroom a free man."

Federal Prosecutor

"Mr. Richman is clearly one of the best defense attorneys against whom I have litigated.  He is a tremendous advocate on behalf of his clients, both in the courtroom, and in his written work.  In the courtroom, he combines passion and zeal with an incredible attention to detail.  Whether in arguments to the court or jury, or in questioning witnesses, he invariably identifies and exploits every possible weakness in the opposing case."

"When the trial finally started, Robert was consistently the calmest, best prepared and attentive lawyer in the courtroom.  He seemed to live and breathe my case for three months."

Federal Defense Lawyer

"I can recall at least two specific instances when Robert's intellect and creativity led to solutions that no other member of the legal team envisioned.  On these occasions, his calm influence brought others to see the wisdom of his approach and he correctly persuaded members of the legal team to adopt what turned out to be the correct path."
