Joel Bacher, Criminal Defense Lawyer for Corruption Charges

Corruption is an abuse of the public trust and usually involves an official in public office. Crimes involving bribery charges are also crimes that are levied against public officials. Many times these crimes involve illegal financial arrangements during which the abuse of power is leveraged for self-serving purposes, inconsistent with official duty and the rights of others. These crimes are not taken lightly by the courts. Oftentimes these charges besmirch the call to duty of all public officials, and sentences are meted out especially heavily, as with police corruption or corruption of a government official in high office. I've successfully been defending these cases for over 40 years, and the charges run the gamut. If you've been charged let's talk to see if I can help construct a defense to steadfastly if not forcefully defend your rights against the charges you face

Joel Bacher: Criminal Defense Lawyer for Bribery, Corruption and Other White Collar Crimes

If you or someone you know has been arrested for a white collar crime, I urge you to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney for representation and counsel ASAP. The prosecutor's office will always have the responsibility of proving you committed the offense beyond a reasonable doubt. Not only is this hard to satisfy, but if the presiding judge has any reason to believe you did not commit every element to the crime, the charges against you may be reduced or dismissed. I, Joel Bacher, am here to defend your rights.

I have, for forty years, successfully defended numerous charges that involved corruption, bribery and other white collar crimes. My Wayne law office has achieved numerous acquittals, dismissals and downgrading of charges for a wide range of cases that involve all forms of white collar crimes. We prepare thoroughly for every case in the event of trial. We believe the way to mitigate white collar charges is to negotiate and litigate from a position of strength.

What to Do if You are Arrested for Corruption or Bribery Charges

Many times there are gray areas that can be considered in a review of charges. Sometimes misunderstandings lead to erroneous charges, or over-charges. Regardless of the "facts" upon arrest, if you are booked for corruption, bribery or other white collar crimes, do not talk to the police about your version of the "facts." Do not try to negotiate with the police, even though you might know them personally. Exercise your right to remain silent and get a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity. The police, when questioning you, are not your friends anymore. Although they appear as such, that is how they do their job to get information to hold against you if you do talk. They're just doing their jobs. Often times a corruption charge is bundled with other charges related to it, such as bribery or fraud, which can ramp up the punishment and lead to a long prison sentence. Be polite, yes, but be firm, and request a call to a criminal defense lawyer at your first opportunity and continue to remain silent in the meantime.
