At Butler, Vines and Babb, we have been providing quality and effective legal representation since 1973. Our areas of practice have grown through the years. As a result of our business and personal representation a need for a criminal defense practice developed to protect the rights and interests of entities and persons being investigated or charged often civilly but sometimes for criminal violations.

Our defense practice includes criminal defense representation in a number of areas including so-called “white collar” crimes as well as DUI-related charges. If you are facing a criminal investigation or charge we believe the sooner you seek and obtain representation the better the outcome. We highly recommend at the earliest possible stage that you should contact a lawyer in order to preserve and protect rights and to seek a prompt resolution to the matter.

White Collar Crime Defense

The term “white collar crime was coined in 1939 to describe a “crime committed by a person of respectability and high social status in the course of his occupation.” The FBI simplifies this to define a White Collar Crime as “lying, cheating or stealing in a broad range of activities. These include antitrust violations, computer and internet fraud, credit card fraud, phone and telemarketing fraud, bankruptcy fraud, healthcare fraud, environmental law violations, insurance fraud, mail fraud, government fraud, tax evasion, financial fraud, securities fraud, insider trading, bribery, kickbacks, counterfeiting, public corruption, money laundering, embezzlement, economic espionage and trade secret theft. Because the definition is so broad sometimes a civil investigation can become a criminal investigation. You may not even be aware that the investigation has turned into a criminal enforcement. It is important to have legal advice and representation.

Let our experienced attorneys handle these matters for you and immediately start damage control on your case. From negotiating a plea deal to aggressively representing you at trial, we are driven and dedicated to a successful outcome on your behalf.
