A New York Criminal Attorney is essential to understanding your case
Over the past twenty years, since the implementation of the Federal Sentencing Guidelines in 1987, the penalties for white collar crimes have become dramatically harsher. Years ago, it was uncommon for defendants convicted of such crimes to go to prison. Now it is the norm, and the sentences can be surprisingly long, depending on the amount of the loss among other factors. Facing charges without the assistance of experienced counsel can have dire consequences. New York white collar crime lawyer Jonathan Marks has the skill and resources to handle these often complex cases.
