White Collar Crimes

Financial and white collar crime cases typically involve severe penalties that could affect your financial security, your rights and your reputation. Attorneys Dylan Utley and Ariel K. DiGiulio of New Orleans provide aggressive defense in regulatory and white-collar crime cases.

With judges serving harsher penalties in environmental and white collar cases, more and more cases are resulting in jail time and significant fines in the event of a conviction. Conviction of regulatory, environmental, financial or white collar crimes can result in significant fines and jail time, and can end your professional or political career.

If you suspect you may be the target of an investigation, or if you have been charged with a financial crime, contact DiGiulio Utley, Attorneys at Law for a free evaluation of your case —and to begin preserving your rights and reputation.
