Criminal Defense

The consequences of a criminal conviction can have a lifelong impact. In addition to prison time and hefty fines, an individual who is convicted may face difficulty securing employment in the future. Those facing allegations of white collar crimes may lose their professional licenses. Young people may be expelled from school and lose access to financial aid for college. An aggressive criminal defense attorney with extensive trial experience is essential for minimizing the impact of criminal allegations. At Ratcliffe Harten Galamaga LLP, we take swift action to protect our clients' futures.

White Collar And Other Serious Crimes

We handle a broad range of criminal cases in both the state and federal courts. Our criminal defense lawyers represent individuals and corporations who are under investigation for or have been accused of crimes such as child pornography, drug trafficking and DUI. However, we also have extensive experience with white collar investigations, including:

  • Health care fraud
  • Medicare fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Tax evasion
  • Crimes by public officials
  • Embezzlement of educational or other public funds

If you have cause to believe that you are a person of interest in an ongoing criminal investigation, do not hesitate to contact our attorneys. When we have the opportunity to step in before charges are filed, we can examine the case that prosecutors are building against you and effectively protect your interests.
