Yes. You absolutely need an attorney to represent you if you are charged with a white collar crime.
White collar crime charges are complex. In addition to all of the legal issues, there are complex financial matters that will be presented. A qualified defense attorney will understand these financial records that are being presented and will use this knowledge to defend you. They will also be able to present any an all legal arguments that will benefit you to the court.
Judges do not take people who represent themselves seriously. The prosecutors use a person’s lack of legal knowledge to obtain information that can be used to convict them. Don’t try to fight the charge yourself. Hire a competent attorney who will be watching out for you and your interests.
