San Francisco White Collar Crime Defense Attorney

Bay Area White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer Serving Oakland, San Jose, And San Francisco Clients

White collar crimes are nonviolent crimes that generally involve financial fraud, complex schemes or conspiracies, and companies or employees. John M. Runfola has over 40 years of experience defending clients against false or unfounded white collar criminal charges. We provide our clients with stellar representation both inside and outside of the courtroom. We focus not only on pursuing a dismissal or acquittal but also on salvaging clients’ reputations, jobs, and futures.

Federal Investigations

Though white collar crimes are prosecuted by both federal and state authorities, most cases are brought by the Department of Justice in federal court. Federal investigations take years, and individuals are commonly aware of the investigation even if formal charges have not been filed yet. At this stage, Mr. Runfola can conduct a parallel investigation, comb through documents and records, share exculpatory evidence with the authorities, and advocate for a favorable and early resolution short of indictment.
