NY White Collar Crime Defense

Government Investigations & White Collar Defense

We defend business and professionals against government investigations, enforcement actions and prosecutions in state and federal agencies, New York state courts, and federal courts nationwide.

Focused on White Collar

We are proud of our over 100-year history of defending white-collar clients. We represent professional and business clients during criminal and regulatory investigations and prosecutions. Well-versed in all types of government investigations, we stand ready and equipped to defend our clients in federal and state courts, and before agency tribunals, whenever the need arises. We also represent licensed professionals, such as doctors, nurses, and legal professionals facing disciplinary inquiries or other actions related to their licenses to practice their professions.

All White Collar Cases Are Not Created Equal

At Hacker Murphy, we know that for every client there is a right-sized solution specific to that client. Let us custom-tailor a legal team to meet the specific defense needs of you or your business. Decades of combined attorney experience currently active within the firm means that outside the firm we have a well-developed network of industry experts, professionals and investigators who we work with on a regular basis to create the ultimate defense team for any individual situation. While we are large enough to staff any sized case with the right legal professionals, we remain small enough to stay agile and cost-effective for all our white-collar clients.

Have Questions?

  • If I hire an attorney but do not want to go to trial, can I settle?
    In the course of preparing a case for trial, your personal injury attorney will work with the defense attorneys and insurance companies in an effort to secure a fair settlement for you and your family. The final decision to accept an offer of settlement or go to trial is yours alone to make.
    Contact us now to discuss your case with one of our experienced attorneys.
  • If arrested, what steps can I take on my behalf?

    1. Do not discuss your situation with anyone except your attorney.

    2. Unless your attorney says otherwise, do not discuss your case with law enforcement.

    3. Request to have your attorney present if you are to be put in a lineup or subjected to testing.

    4. Remain calm and courteous. Allow your attorney to speak for you to ensure that your rights are protected and you are given all the benefits afforded to you under the law.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
