White Collar Crimes And Other Federal Offenses

To stand a chance, you need a lawyer who knows what he’s doing. Stephen P. Pfeiffer has extensive experience in federal court and is able to assist with most complex federal crimes, including:

  • Healthcare fraud

A Skilled Attorney Can Make All The Difference

So-called “white collar crimes” still carry severe punishment, including the real possibility of prison. A felony record could cost you your job or professional license, and interfere with future employment. In many cases, prosecutors tack on charges of mail fraud, wire fraud and/or obstruction of justice as additional leverage. You need a lawyer who can scrutinize the government’s case to cast doubt on criminal intent and other facets of the allegations. Mr. Pfeiffer works every angle to convince the prosecutor to dismiss the case or drop the most serious charges. He will explore possible plea negotiations, but he is prepared and equipped to defend you at trial to avoid the consequences of a felony conviction.
