Criminal Attorney Defends Those Accused of Fraud, Theft and RICO Violations in Cook County and Kane County

If you are under investigation or have been charged with a white collar crime, you need experienced legal guidance right away. White collar crimes are often the result of federal investigations, and many are charged as felonies which carry heavy fines and long prison sentences. The government typically prosecutes such charges aggressively, because they want to make an example out of the accused, and because prosecutors often want to make a name for themselves. If you or someone close is facing a white collar felony charge, the skilled criminal defense attorney at Owens Law, LLC is here to help.

Our lawyer has a strong track record of success litigating white collar felony cases in Chicago and throughout Illinois. He has over 25 years of experience in this area of the law and an in-depth understanding of the playbook prosecutors typically use to gain convictions. With experience as a former prosecutor and a defense attorney who has served as lead counsel and obtained winning verdicts in numerous jury trials involving serious charges such as first-degree murder, he understands that an aggressive posture early on often leads to positive results in these types of cases. At each stage in the process, he is thorough and meticulous, gathering all important evidence to bolster your case and aggressively challenge the prosecution at every turn.

We handle a wide range of white collar felony cases, including but not limited to:

  • Bank Fraud
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Bribery
  • Theft/Embezzlement
  • Insider Trading/Securities Fraud
  • Money Laundering

  • Identity Theft

Penalties for White Collar Felonies

  • Probation
