New Jersey White Collar Crimes Attorneys
Accused of a White Collar Crime in the New York Tri-State Area?
State or federal criminal law cases are significantly more complex than many other legal areas, and building a strong defense is an intricate process only the most well-versed criminal defense attorneys can successfully execute. Arseneault & Fassett, LLC is a seasoned law firm with the personnel and experience needed to properly address all aspects of a state or federal white collar crime trial. Our New Jersey team includes a former Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division for the United States Attorney’s Office, three former state prosecutors—one of whom served as a Federal Public Defender—and several award-winning lawyers who acquired in-depth knowledge of state and federal criminal defense methods through private practice.
Concerning our handling of white collar crime cases, many of our clients are professional people with careers in the medical, legal, or financial fields; government; or law enforcement who have never experienced the criminal justice system from the point of view of a defendant. When they are investigated for or accused of criminal offenses related to their work, they find themselves in treacherous territory with much more at stake than defendants accused of more pedestrian offenses.
Not only are defendants’ freedoms at stake, but also their careers, reputations, and professional licenses. They also face potential monetary penalties. Our priority is always to protect a client’s liberty. We are exceedingly sensitive to these other collateral consequences of investigation and prosecution as we represent our clients.

Proactive White Collar Crime Representation in New Jersey
The criminal enforcement process contains both traps for the unwary and, in some cases, the opportunity to avoid being charged with a crime. Our attorneys remain keenly attuned to the risks inherent in responding to a government investigation. An ill-advised response can create criminal liability where there might otherwise have been none. Our attorneys provide proactive advice in the earliest stages of government inquiries to head off this risk and to protect our clients’ interests.
Thoroughly Reviewing and Analyzing Your White Collar Crime Case
When we are retained, we promptly come up to speed on the facts, analyze the applicable law, assess the potential criminal exposure, and advise the client through every aspect of the process.
This may include advice on how best to deal with:
- Subpoenas demanding documents and testimony
- Search warrants
- Voluntary surrender
- Employee interviews by government agents (including unannounced visits)
- Negotiations and plea bargaining
- Relations with witnesses
- Informants who may be cooperating with the government
- Investigative inquiries from civil and quasi-criminal authorities
- Media attention and required public disclosures
- Whether a company should conduct its own internal investigation
- Crucial issues about what is protected by the attorney-client privilege and whether it may be in a client’s interest to waive the privilege
- Whether a company or an individual should affirmatively cooperate with the government’s investigation, and how best to protect against a criminal investigation that gives rise to potential civil exposure.
Our measure of success is when our advice results in our clients never being charged. However, when our clients’ liberty or financial survival is at stake and no acceptable resolution can be reached before trial, we are experienced trial attorneys, not just “litigators.”
