Experienced White Collar Criminal Defense Lawyer

"White collar" crime is a hot topic these days. Federal authorities, the Leon County Sheriff's Office, and the Tallahassee Police Department all have units with detectives and agents who only investigate economic crimes. The Leon County State Attorney's Office is staffed with experienced prosecutors whose sole job is to prosecute monetary crimes to the fullest extent of the law.

If you are charged with a white collar crime, you need a defense attorney who can level the playing field. You need a Tallahassee defense attorney with as much – if not more – experience as the prosecutors. Joe Bodiford is that attorney.

Mr. Bodiford has represented hundreds of people charged with virtually every type of economic crime. Some of the types of white collar charges we defend clients against include:

  • Mortgage fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Welfare fraud
  • Student loan fraud
  • Medicare fraud
  • Theft from employers
  • RICO
  • Tax evasion
  • Extortion
  • Bribery
  • Theft
  • Forgery

Recognized Expertise In White Collar Criminal Defense

When facing a white collar charge, why not have a Tallahassee criminal lawyer with the best experience in the area? Why not have a defense lawyer in Tallahassee who has written a highly regarded book on the topic? Why not hire a Leon County criminal defense lawyer who teaches other attorneys how to defend these cases?

Joe is the author of the chapter "White-Collar Crimes" in the Florida Bar's book Business Litigation in Florida. That book is relied on by attorneys and judges all over Florida.

Mr. Bodiford regularly lectures and speaks at seminars on the topic of white collar crime. Each March since 2012, he has been a featured faculty member at the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyer's "White Collar Criminal Defense College" at Stetson University College of Law, a "boot-camp" program for practitioners wishing to gain key advocacy skills and learn substantive white collar law.
