An allegation of fraud, theft or embezzlement may involve a single act or a series of complex, inter-related financial transactions over time. Regardless of the specific circumstances, defense of white collar crimes raises issues which are significantly different than those for other types of crimes. A person accused of fraud, theft or embezzlement requires a defense lawyer who understands these differences and knows how to use the facts and the law to mount an effective defense effort.

A Team of Experienced Advocates
Christopher A. Casciola is the lead attorney in our white collar and fraud defense practice. When necessary, we consult with and retain experts, such as forensic accountants, financial analysts, geologists, biologists, physicians and other specialists who can provide support for our defense and weaken the prosecution’s case.
Our goal in every case is to obtain the best outcome possible, which might include a civil compromise (where the client pays for damage or completes remediation in exchange for a dismissal of the charges) or other alternative sentencing outcomes.
Defense of Environmental Crime Allegations
California takes alleged environmental crimes very seriously. Recently local law enforcement agencies and the District Attorney’s Office have dramatically increased investigation and prosecution of this category of crimes. These cases often include businesses, farmers, ranchers and developers. A backhoe operator or road grader can unexpectedly find himself charged with a serious crime for just doing their job.
These types of violations are unique and the laws covering them are subject to technical interpretations. Casciola & Galambos, LLP has significant experience representing individuals and businesses accused of environmental crimes such as grading violations, stream bed alteration, dumping of hazardous waste, workplace safety violations and others.
Casciola & Galambos, LLP will use our experience and knowledge of the law to build the strongest and most effective defense possible.
