White collar crime defines a criminal activity committed without using violence. Examples include insider trading, insurance fraud, tax fraud, securities and investment fraud, and identity theft. If you are accused of committing a white collar crime, you need a white collar criminal defense lawyer familiar with the government's style of negotiating and trying white collar crimes.
