Dallas White Collar Defense Attorney

Fort Worth Embezzlement Lawyer

Fitzpatrick Hagood Smith & Uhl LLP is one of the Southwest's premier white collar criminal defense law firms. Our attorneys have the knowledge to defend businesses and corporate executives dealing with allegations of corporate malfeasance, embezzlement, or fraud. As former state and federal prosecutors, our lawyers understand how government attorneys prepare and pursue white collar cases, and we use this knowledge to level the playing field for our clients.

Breaking News:
March 4, 2009, in the District Court of the Virgin Islands Division of St. Croix, a sweep of not guilty verdicts (all defendants, all charges) was obtained in a case involving the EDC (Economic Development Commission) tax incentive program. There was alleged tax fraud of more than $300 million. Firm attorneys Robert R. (Bob) Smith and Robert Webster represented defendants in the case.
