The attorneys at the Law Office of Donald P Day represent clients who have been charged with or are being investigated for white-collar and internet crimes. Despite being non-violent crimes, the state of Florida prosecutes white-collar crimes very seriously and a conviction will result in serious consequences. It will also limit your future employment opportunities. Our criminal defense lawyers have experience with a wide variety of white-collar crimes, from embezzlement to identity theft. We assist clients in the Marco Island, FL area.

We’ll put that experience to work to offer you reliable guidance and aggressive representation in court.
With over 40 years of combined legal experience, the defense lawyers at our firm have handled a wide range of white-collar crime cases. We will fight tirelessly to defend your freedom as well as your reputation.
White-collar crime refers to non-violent crimes that typically involve theft or fraud of some kind. They tend to be committed by people in the business world, and they often involve computers and/or deceptive scams for unlawful financial gain. Because this category of charges is broad and only vaguely defined, many crimes with a wide range of consequences may fall into the white-collar category. Some are misdemeanors, which result in a fine of up to $1,000 and a jail sentence of up to 1 year. Serious federal criminal convictions, such as bank fraud, carry fines up to $1,000,000 and jail sentences of up to 30 years. The consequences differ based on the amount of money involved, the number of people affected by the crime, and other related factors.
