New Jersey White Collar Crimes Lawyers

Many individuals facing white collar crime allegations such as fraud and embezzlement are encountering the criminal justice system for the first time in their lives. They are good people who worry about the impact that the charges will have on their careers and families. They wonder if they will end up in jail. They feel trapped, the puppets of an overzealous prosecutor’s investigation.

If you find yourself in this situation, remember: there is hope, especially when you have an experienced and aggressive white collar crime defense lawyer on your side.

New Jersey and New York white collar crimes lawyer Melissa Paolella has more than a decade of experience in criminal law, including experience as an assistant New York County district attorney and trial lawyer for the U.S. Department of Justice. As a former prosecutor, she has insight into the tactics that the state and federal governments use to prosecute white collar crimes. She uses this insight to her clients’ advantage.
