Handcuffs - Los Angeles White Collar State Crime Defense

The federal government is not the only entity that prosecutes white collar crimes. California has its own detailed laws defining many white collar offenses. Local District Attorneys and the California Attorney General also aggressively prosecute these types of cases.

At Anand Law Group, you can fight fire with fire. Our firm is led by a former federal prosecutor who served in the Major Frauds Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles and who was a local prosecutor in New York. Mr. Anand is also a former Certified Public Accountant, which gives him a significant edge in evaluating cases involving financial and accounting issues and explaining those concepts to juries who are unfamiliar with such things.
