White collar crime is generally confined to extremely unethical, illegal behaviors such as bribery or extortion, or acts through which a person attempts illegal monetary gains through acts such as embezzlement, fraud, or theft. Conviction of a white-collar crime will almost certainly be a death blow to any hope of future employment in a professional career.

Examples of white-collar crime include conspiracy of corporate officers, elected officials, politicians or employees. An example of such white collar crimes would be bribery, accepting kickbacks, embezzlement, misuse of taxpayer funds, and related illegal acts.

The federal court system and the prosecution of white-collar crimes is very complex. A successful defense of white-collar criminal charges requires an attorney that understands the nuances and fine points of the law.
