White Collar Crimes

White collar crime generally refers to property crimes that involve technology and intelligence to commit the crime rather than violence or coercion. Usually white collar crimes are committed by well-educated and affluent professionals and involve high value property or monetary sums.

Some of the more common white collar crime charges we have seen include:

  • Embezzlement: Embezzlement is different from common theft in that it involves taking money or other property from your employer or someone else who entrusted you with the money.
  • Theft, fraud and forgery: These are common white collar crimes that involve stealing money, forging checks or convincing someone to relinquish money or other property under false pretenses.
  • Computer crimes: Computers can be used for embezzlement, fraud, forgery, sex crimes, and identity theft/criminal impersonation.


Most simply put, extortion is trying, by use of force or threat of force, to get someone to do something that he or she does not otherwise have to do. Accusations of extortion are easy to make and hard to prove. We have seen a number of extortion cases at Leah Bishop, L.L.C., and we are fully equipped to handle your extortion defense.

Colorado Organized Crime Control Act

Large, well-organized Ponzi schemes, money laundering and other theft crimes involving the organization of many people to commit the crime could be considered organized crime under the Colorado Organized Crime Control Act. These cases face different standards, procedures and sentencing structures. Often, these cases involve constitutional issues brought on through the wire-tap technique that the police use to gather information.

Wire tapping and constitutional privacy issues are extremely complicated to litigate and should be handled by only the most experienced criminal defense attorney. As a former deputy DA, Leah Bishop knows the law involved in these cases inside and out. She could be your best defense against white collar crimes.
