It’s not business as usual when it comes to the policing of white collar crimes these days. Businesses and employees are in the crosshairs of local, state, and federal prosecutors, with public officials and public interest groups demanding stronger and faster enforcement of white collar criminal laws. But in many cases, in a rush to judgment it’s the honest individuals and businesses who take the heat so that prosecutors and officials can make an example of someone, while the connected and influential escape scrutiny.
If you have found yourself the subject of investigation in a white collar criminal action or probe or believe you might be, you’ll want to work with a trustworthy and tenacious criminal defense attorney who will fight to protect your interests and freedom. Biloxi, MS white collar crime lawyer Corban Gunn will work to defend you against investigations and prosecutions into:

Don’t Take the Fall for Another’s Gain
All too often in white collar investigations and prosecutions, there are people on both sides of the law looking for someone to be the “fall guy” so that the prosecutors and officials can show that they have a victory. In some cases, there can be a political motivation to give the appearance of being tough on crime, and so one individual or business gets shoved into the spotlight and prosecutors may be compelled to do whatever it takes to get a conviction, even if that means unfairly demonizing a party or presenting shoddy evidence.
In other cases, there may be one individual or business who unfortunately gets caught up in the bad business decisions of another party, whether that be a competitor or co-worker, and that party is left to answer for another’s deeds. If you are the subject of a white collar investigation or prosecution, it is important you find a lawyer who is solely dedicated to protecting your interests, and who will fight to defend your reputation, career, and freedom from being threatened by someone else’s financial or political goals.
Don’t Let Prosecutors Roll Over You With Insufficient Evidence
One of the most important things to remember as a criminal defendant is that the prosecution must present evidence which proves every element of a crime “beyond a reasonable doubt.” This is a high standard that the prosecutors must meet, and therefore they will try to intimidate you into taking a quick plea deal and avoiding a trial.
A tough defense attorney will demand that the prosecution put all of its evidence on the table and force them to play fair and honor your constitutional rights at all times. Our lawyers will investigate all written and electronic evidence, work with witnesses, and put your best defense forward through the investigation and into negotiations and trial, if necessary.
