Lake Charles' Choice for Quality Legal Service
White Collar Crime

Lake Charles White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyers

White collar crimes are often referred to as some of the most meticulous and difficult cases to analyze due, in large part, to the influx of information that is present, experts that are needed, and mathematic and financial information that can be confusing. If an alleged offender is found guilty of a white collar crime, they could be facing serious jail time and fines. Some of the typical charges that fall under the scope of white collar crimes are:

  1. Money Laundering
  2. Fraud (Corporate, Loan, Mortgage, Bank, Health Care)
  3. Embezzlement
  4. Corruption
  5. Conspiracy
  6. Bribery
  7. Antitrust Violations

Mr. Sudduth entered the legal profession with a financial background and is proud to offer this service to his clients.

At Sudduth & Associates, we are not only happy to take the cases, but we thrive in defending them. Regardless of your status or job title, protecting your reputation is essential and discretion is paramount; therefore, you need a firm that is willing to protect you every step of the way.
