Resourceful White-Collar Crime Lawyers in Jersey City & Newark
Determined defense to a variety of nonviolent crimes
White-collar crime is a subset of criminal activity that steers clear of violence and requires a level of technical sophistication to pull off. Because the crime itself requires technical skill, your defense relies on technical knowledge. You attorney must also possess the ability to simplify complex details and distill them into an understandable and persuasive explanation that rebuts the allegations against you. The Anthony Pope Law Firm has more than 30 years of experience defending accused parties from indictable white-collar crimes, including:
Diligence and determination working on your behalf

Our attorneys have vast experience in criminal proceedings in state and federal courts. We delve into the details of your case, whether it concerns banking, accounting, securities, Medicare or any number of areas that require specific knowledge of protocols and procedures. We consult with knowledgeable experts who understand the complexities, so we know exactly what the prosecution must prove and can expose the holes in their case.
When a white-collar arrest becomes a federal case
Federal crimes often receive more vigorous prosecution and carry stiffer penalties than state crimes. Plus, the prosecution’s team, including federal law enforcement, are often more professional than state authorities. White-collar crimes become federal cases for a number of reasons:
- A violation of a federal statute or against a federal agency – e.g., securities fraud, regulated by the federal Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
- A crime accomplished through the means of a federal agency – e.g., mail fraud using the U.S. Postal Service
- A crime committed on federal property – e.g., a shooting at a federal building or in a national park
- A crime that crosses state lines – e.g., fraud committed over the phone from one state to another
