DuPage County White Collar Crime Attorney

Wheaton White Collar Crime Attorney

Lawyer in Wheaton for Clients Charged With Fraud, Forgery, and Identity Theft

At The Law Offices of O’Donnell & Nierman, Ltd., we realize that certain criminal offenses tend to attract more attention than others. Those who are accused of violent crimes, for example, often have their names and faces featured on the news and in headlines. Other crimes, however, may seem less dramatic but are often just as serious, including financial and identity-related offenses, frequently referred to as white collar crime.

The term white collar crime generally encompasses a variety of non-violent offenses related to the theft of or unauthorized access to assets and personal information for the personal gain of the perpetrator. Such crimes may include:

  • Identity Theft: Using another person's identifying information to make purchases or to apply for loans or credit.
  • Credit Card Fraud: Stealing another's credit card number for unauthorized purchases.
  • Embezzlement: Concealing or misdirecting assets of a company or organization for personal gain.
  • Fraud: Obtaining the property of another by deception, including forged documents or Internet scams.
  • Money Laundering: Concealing funds generated by illegal activity, including drug trafficking, to make it appear as though the money was obtained legitimately.
  • Insurance Fraud: Making false or exaggerated claims to increase insurance payouts.
  • Check Fraud: Intentionally writing forged checks or checks that will never be honored by a financial institution.

Aurora Attorney for White Collar Crime Defense

A conviction on any criminal charge can be life-changing, and white collar crime is no exception. With white collar crime, however, a single allegation—even one that is unfounded—can destroy your professional reputation and your ability to work within your chosen industry ever again. Attorney Michael P. O'Donnell understands the importance of building an aggressive, comprehensive defense when you are facing charges of white collar crime. As a former prosecutor and a 20-year veteran of the United States Army Reserve military police, Mr. O'Donnell is equipped to work within the law to ensure that your rights are fully protected.

White collar crimes are often very complex, and charges often involve substantial amounts of paperwork and financial records. That is why it is so important to work with an attorney who understands the process and is willing to spend the time and effort in securing a favorable outcome. When necessary, Mr. O'Donnell is prepared to negotiate with prosecutors, law enforcement, and business owners to find a resolution that could reduce or eliminate the charges against you.
