Criminal Defense For Business Professionals

At The Stavroff Law Firm in Columbus, I pull from my work as a prosecutor, years of business law practice and focused criminal defense to provide you with the one-on-one legal representation and insider understanding you need when facing white collar criminal charges at the state or federal level.

Prepared To Take On Complex Cases

With white collar criminal charges here’s far too much at stake for you professionally to trust your defense to any Ohio criminal defense attorney. I offer sophisticated legal guidance for clients who work in business, health care, pharmaceutical and associated fields. I can assist with charges that include or are related to:

  • Medicare, insurance, health care or mail fraud
  • The False Claims Act
  • PPP business loans during COVID
  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Failure to pay payroll tax or other taxes

In any fraud charge case, there are instances where more than one party is acting. There may be many working parts and different individuals making decisions. The prosecution will attempt to show intent because it is a “safety net” charge. It is very difficult for the prosecution to prove intent (mens rea) against someone who has a solid defense strategy.

I do more than just defend, I attack the accusations. I will reveal if there was a set up or entrapment by law enforcement or others in power. In some cases it is possible that the accused was following what was believed to be an established and accepted protocol, in billing procedures, for example. I handle criminal charges at both the state level and the federal level.

Get Quality Representation As Soon As Possible

The earlier that you enlist the legal support of an attorney, the better for your defense. If you even think you’re being investigated for a white collar crime, you need to talk to a lawyer.

While there are many criminal defense attorneys who will take white collar criminal cases, very few have the business understanding and experience that I have. I know what good business procedures look like as I work with clients on these matters every day. I will work assiduously to protect you and your interests.
