Houston White Collar Crime Lawyer

When Texas law enforcement knocks on your door, your legal journey is just beginning. I am leading Texas defense attorney Alejandro Macias. From the very start, I stand up for you and put a stop to abusive policing.

White Collar Crime Attorney in Houston

The witch hunt against alleged white collar criminals was born right here in Houston, with the 2001 collapse of Enron and the then-record $11 billion loss to shareholders.

Over the last two decades, numerous high-profile cases have made the headlines, from the Bernie Madoff ponzi scheme, to the conviction of Elizabeth Holmes over fraud at the biotech startup Theranos. These legitimate high-profile cases have masked the many incidents where overzealous authorities have targeted business professionals with unfair and unsubstantiated allegations.

White Collar Crimes

These are complex crimes best left to a Houston white collar criminal defense lawyer with significant experience in both state and federal court and a working relationship with the accountants, forensic financial experts and other professionals capable of defending working professionals against allegations of fraud or misconduct.

Common White-Collar Criminal Charges include:

  • Securities Fraud
  • Insider Trading
  • Wire Fraud
  • Mail Fraud
  • Tax Evasion
  • Money Laundering
  • Bank Fraud
  • Mortgage Fraud
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity (RICO)
  • Medicaid/Medicare Fraud
  • Healthcare Fraud

Those under investigation are always best served by reaching out for legal help from an experienced white-collar criminal defense law firm at the earliest possible stage of such cases. Exercise your right to remain silent. In most cases, if investigators are talking to you, they do not yet have enough evidence to make an arrest. While an indictment may be forthcoming regardless, there is nothing you can say or do (other than contacting a Houston defense attorney) that will help your case. In fact, any statements you do make, may well conflict with potential defense strategies that may have otherwise been used to protect you against criminal allegations of wrongdoing.

These allegations often result in federal investigations and significant state and federal resources being arrayed against a defendant. In many cases, working professionals may even be charged with wrongdoing for the conduct of another.

Under Texas Penal Code § 7.22 a corporation may be held responsible for the acts of an employee in instances where the employee was acting within the scope of his duties and on behalf of a corporation and the allegations are defined under the law as a strict-liability crime or one that applies to corporations, or the act is requested or authorized by senior management.

Under Texas Penal Code §7.02 another employee or person can be held responsible for the crimes of another when he or she orders an employee to perform an illegal act; solicits, aids, attempts to aid, or encourage an illegal act; or has a legal duty to stop or prevent an illegal act.

Such highly complex cases are difficult to prove, particularly when accused parties act early in seeking the advice, guidance and representation of an experienced white collar criminal defense law firm.
