Your Defense Starts Now -- Call Our Financial Crimes Defense Attorney in Connecticut

Financial crimes defense is a highly technical area which typically entails criminal violations of Connecticut state law, the United States Code, or the Internal Revenue Code. The consequences of a misdemeanor or felony conviction for such crimes are devastating -- they may potentially include large fines, lengthy prison time, the ability to become employed in a certain profession, and a permanent criminal record.

Help is here. Attorney Roderick D. Woods has achieved exceptional results in the defense of clients charged with financial crimes, including:

  • United States of America v. Torres (3:15-cr-00216 JCH): Client, over the course of a six-year period, failed to file federal income tax returns, structured bank deposits, and did not report $1.27 million dollars of income to the IRS. Client was charged in the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut with felony attempted tax evasion and was facing a statutory maximum of five years in prison along with a $250,000 fine. Attorney Woods successfully argued for a non-Guidelines sentence and client received a sentence of three months in prison and no fine.
  • State of Connecticut v. S. S.: Client failed, for a number of years, to remit approximately $17,000 of sales tax to the State of Connecticut Department of Revenue Services. Client was charged with four misdemeanor counts of failure to remit sales tax and was facing a maximum of four years in prison, as well as a sizeable fine. Attorney Woods aggressively contested the charges, and was able to negotiate a nolle prosequi (dismissal under Connecticut law) of all four misdemeanor charges.
