White Collar Offenses: Federal
The firm of Broden & Mickelsen specializes in the aggressive representation of individuals and businesses charged with various types of fraud and white collar offenses in federal court. White collar and fraud charges in federal court usually result in multi-count indictments. The Sentencing Guidelines used in federal court take into account the amount of loss that is alleged to have occurred in determining whether a prison sentence is warranted upon the conviction for a fraud or white collar offense. A fraud loss of as little as $30,000 could result in a prison sentence for a person convicted at trial of a fraud or white collar offense even if that person has no previous criminal record.
In order to successfully defend against white collar allegations, it is essential that an attorney work closely with a client and that the defense conduct a full investigation into the facts and allegations. We are committed to spending the time necessary to fully learn the intricacies of complex white collar cases and we have significant trial experience and appellate experience dealing with these type of charges. We also will work with a variety of investigators in order to fully investigate the facts of a client's case. Even in cases that ultimately result in a guilty plea, we devote countless hours to ensuring that a client's sentencing guidelines are calculated as leniently as possible under the law.
We are proud of our accomplishments in this area. For example, our firm successfully defended an environmental chemist who was charged with numerous counts of submitting fraudulent lab results in a seven week federal court trial.

We also successfully defended a business executive charged in a complex financial fraud case involving an alleged loss of over $6 million despite the fact that our client's own brother testified against him.
