White Collar Crimes
Minneapolis And St. Paul White Collar Crimes Defense
Federal And State White Collar Defense
In many cases, whether white collar or not, federal criminal cases start out with a person receiving a target letter. This is something the government sends to the target of a federal investigation and gives him or her options on how to proceed. These options include appearing voluntarily before a grand jury investigating a crime or meeting with the prosecutor to talk about the offense. Neither of those are smart options.
Upon receipt of a target letter, the first thing that needs to be done is to retain a criminal defense lawyer experienced and licensed in federal court. We have decades of combined experience navigating clients successfully through these cases. We have handled federal criminal cases involving large drug conspiracies, narcotics possession and distribution, large-scale marijuana growing operations, federal armed bank robbery, receipt, possession and distribution of child pornography, and mortgage fraud, to name a few.
In numerous cases where we have been hired early on, such as after the receipt of a target letter, we have been able to negotiate down the charges and avoid a grand jury indictment, and in some cases even prevent charges from being brought. If you are involved in a federal criminal case, you need to call our law office at 952-540-6800 or contact us online immediately. We are available 24/7/365 and we take these cases very seriously.
White collar crimes also arise in the state courts, and the stakes are high there, too. Although the state courts are typically not as harsh in the white collar area as the federal courts, any charge in this arena is still a serious one. We have successfully handled numerous serious state white collar crime cases that had our clients facing long prison terms, but which were avoided by the implementation of a good, solid defense.
The most common white collar crimes in federal court include:
- Securities and health care fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Mortgage, wire, Internet and postal mail fraud
- Identity theft
- Tax, check and credit card violations
- Extortion, blackmail and bribery
The list goes on and on. If you have been charged with any of these, you need a white collar crimes attorney who will stand by your side and fight hard to obtain the very best possible outcome in your case.
White collar crimes involve serious financial damage to others and the penalties can be harsh. Serious prison time and high fines are common. Even if someone is a first-time federal offender and an otherwise law-abiding citizen, when the U.S. government goes after someone, the stakes get very high very quickly.

Thanks Mr. John Leunig for representing me! I wanted to scream very loudly at the court house but I could not because I was afraid that I may talk in my African language.

You are the best Lawyer not only in the continental USA but in all the five continents in the world and I am thankful for choosing you out of the load of names I had. I cannot find better vocabulary in any language to describe what you do and how great you are at it!…But I say Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
