Legal Consequences Of Financially-motivated Offenses

Having an investigation begun in your name can be one of the most frightening situations an individual can face. You may be wondering how you will ever recover if you are convicted. Will you lose your job? Will your family despise you? How will you become an active member of society again?

While these are all legitimate concerns raised by individuals accused of a white collar crime in Southern California, it is even more important to seek the answers to these questions. Fortunately, a Los Angeles white collar defense attorney from Okabe & Haushalter is highly experienced in navigating these matters. In 2015, our dedicated team secured minimum sentencing in what prosecutors called the largest public official bribery case resulting from a sting operation in U.S. history.
