Los Angeles White Collar Crime and Ponzi Schemes

Posted by Dmitry Gorin | Jul 21, 2011 | 0 Comments

Whenever a Los Angeles White Collar Crime Lawyer represents someone charged by the state or federal government, he has to do battle in court with some of the best attorneys in California. While drug crimes, sex crimes and violent crimes can involve people in the middle class or the poor, white collar crime always involves a high-level executive, government official or entrepreneur. In a recent article in the LA Weekly, a man known as the "Bernie Madoff of Beverly Hills" was highlighted as a high profile white collar criminal in need of some serious legal representation. He was reportedly forced into bankruptcy three years ago and left a trail of more than $1 billion in potential claims. Like many white collar criminals, he built a relationship with a tight knit community, in this case the Persian Jewish community in Los Angeles. Currently, Ezri Namvar is living under house arrest in Brentwood in an $8 million mansion. He is awaiting his sentence for wire fraud, which is the typical type of charge that goes along with any white collar crime. In May of 2011, Namvar was convicted of four federal wire fraud charges for taking $21 million from people into his financial corporation, none of which has been paid back. According to the media and police, 400 people have lost their retirement savings, college funds, bar mitzvah money and more. This crime has torn apart the community which trusted this man, businesses, creditors and much more. What his Defense Attorney and his business allies are trying to argue, is whether or not he was committing fraud or just doing business poorly at a risky time. People accused of white collar crimes often claim that the poor economy was the culprit, not their business practices. In this instance, the man was convicted of the crime and will have to spend years in federal prison. If you are accused of, charged with or arrested for a white collar crime, contact Kestenbaum Eisner & Gorin. We can provide the kind of legal representation necessary to stay out of prison and free from fines.
