Illinois Fraud Defense Attorneys

Experienced Representation for White Collar Crimes

Not so long ago, those accused of fraud or embezzlement could count on a

lighter sentence than people charged with other felony offenses. In the current

climate, those convicted of "white collar" crimes are often incarcerated the same

as if they had stolen money in a burglary or robbery.

The legal team at Schwulst & Roseberry, P.C., provides sophisticated criminal

defense for fraud and financial crimes. From defending hundreds of clients

caught up in white collar prosecutions, we understand the high stakes — and

how to counter the government's case. We are committed to keeping our clients

out of prison if at all possible and mitigating the impact on their careers, their

families and their reputations.

Bloomington Fraud Defense Lawyers Committed to a

Favorable Outcome

Indictments for white collar crimes are often the culmination of a long

investigation spanning many months. However, that does not mean that the

prosecution has an airtight case. We explore every defense and every avenue to

avoid a conviction or mitigate the consequences. For a first offense, we may be

able to negotiate full restitution and probation. If there is a mental health issue

or psychological trigger, the court may be amenable to treatment in lieu of jail or

probation. If there are prior convictions or a substantial amount in controversy,

we might take the case to trial or try to maneuver for a lesser sentence.

Sometimes we can intervene with the prosecutor to avert criminal charges

altogether or negotiate a resolution out of the public eye. In a recent

embezzlement case, we prevailed on the state's attorney to dismiss the criminal

charges, leaving only a civil lawsuit to resolve the matter.
