Our nation’s prison system is filled with people who have gone to prison as a result of convictions related to white-collar crime.
Check out our Executive Summary to learn how effective compliance programs can help your company. An effective compliance program can lessen the likelihood of a government investigation, or charges for white-collar crime.
Many people who are currently serving time for white-collar crimes complain that:
- They didn’t know their business decisions could lead to government investigations.
- Business decisions should expose them to civil charges, not white-collar crimes.
- The costs of defending against a government investigation drove them to bankruptcy.
- Their decisions should not result in the high costs of a conviction for a white-collar crime.
Can your business withstand a government investigation? We can help.
Our team could build an effective compliance program for your company. By working to show best practices, and showing a good-faith effort to abide by all laws and regulations, you go a long way toward qualifying for:

If you’re worried about an investigation, or you’re worried that charges for white-collar crimes may follow, then start thinking about mitigation strategies.
Our team at Compliance Mitigation has vast experience in working to assist business leaders who want to prepare for the best possible outcome if they’re facing a charge for white-collar crime. You can read more about the members of our team. But we have a motto:
Sadly, many business leaders build their careers without a complete understanding of how their decisions can lead to criminal charges. Our nation has more than 4,000 criminal statutes. Prosecutors may choose to bring criminal charges against people for reasons that don’t have anything to do with justice. They may want vengeance, or they may derive some form of political benefit for bringing criminal rather than civil charges against a person.
To prepare for the best outcome, it’s best to understand the criminal justice system. The more you know, the better you can prepare yourself to avoid the indignity of criminal charges. But if prosecutors bring charges against you for a white-collar crime, learn steps you can take to get leniency at sentencing or to prepare for the best possible outcome.

To get the backstory of my journey, you can click this link.
Like the protagonist in Homer’s epic tale of Odysseus, I’m a man who has been on a long journey. The link above will give you full insight into the experiences that led me through 26 years in federal prison, and how I emerged to build businesses around the experience. The bullet-point version follows:
- I made bad decisions as a young man that led to a government investigation.
- My response to the government investigation led to a 45-year prison term.
- While incarcerated, I earned a bachelor’s degree, a master’s degree, and I published books to help business leaders understand how they could avoid behaviors that could lead to white-collar investigations and criminal convictions.
- Upon release, I built businesses to teach others about the complications that follow for people charged with crimes.
- Everyone on our team has gone through a government investigation.
- Together, we can help your company build effective compliance programs.
- If you’re facing charges for white-collar crimes, we can work to position you for leniency at sentencing, or the best possible outcome.
- Our team can help with highly customized efforts to restore your reputation.
