Your White Collar Defense Attorney
It often seems that corporate interests are the focus of white collar criminal cases. As the founder of A.J. Hodges, IV - Attorney at Law, I focus on individuals in need of criminal defense representation.
I have an extensive and varied background in criminal law that includes a criminal justice degree, clerking in criminal court and seven years as a staff attorney for the East Baton Rouge public defender’s office handling thousands of cases. I also headed up the criminal law division of a major law firm. This experience gives me firsthand knowledge about all areas of criminal law. It also means I am a savvy courtroom litigator who fights for my clients’ rights.
I sit down with each client to discuss his or her legal goals and the facts of the case. These crimes often have mandatory minimum sentencing and can impact your assets, licensing and employment opportunities.
What Is White Collar Crime?
White collar crime is no longer limited to people in suits laundering cash or fraudulently diverting funds. There are now rampant internet scams, identity theft, credit card fraud, intellectual property infringement and other computer-based crimes. While people are generally not physically injured by these crimes, prosecution can still be aggressive and sentences quite severe.
We often handle:
- Tax evasion
- Credit card fraud
- Ponzi schemes
- Securities fraud
- Intellectual property violations
Prosecutors often have extensive resources at their disposal to construct overwhelming cases against those charged. Contact me at A.J. Hodges, IV - Attorney at Law as soon as possible. The prosecution can be aggressive, so ensure that your defense is the same.
