Were You Charged With A White Collar Crime?
Fraud, embezzlement, identity theft and insider trading cases are complex. They require immense document analysis and understanding of business, finance and regulatory laws. Because New York and New Jersey are financial hubs, state and federal prosecutors aggressively pursue these cases, which can result in large fines and lengthy imprisonment.

What To Expect Going Forward
If you are contacted by the NYPD, FBI or other law enforcement, you need to remain silent and call an attorney immediately. Hiring an experienced and knowledgeable attorney at the beginning can make all the difference. Doug Schneider has handled internal investigations, convinced prosecutors no crime was committed, and, where appropriate, negotiated significant reductions in penalties for his clients. When necessary, he is more than willing to take a case to trial.
Doug is a tireless advocate who will fight for his clients to the end. In one case, Doug represented a telemarketer living in Canada who was charged with fraud in the United States, which meant he could not leave Canada without the risk of being arrested. Doug spent over six years untangling a complicated web of contracts, thousands of phone calls and emails, and complex Canadian business documents to ultimately prove to the federal prosecutor that his client was actually the victim of the crime. Not only were all charges dropped, but the government returned tens of thousands of dollars that it had seized back to his client.
