You should not be prosecuted as a criminal for what is a civil dispute over money! Unfortunately, this happens all too often in both state and federal court. For example, because an investor lost money in a business venture and now blames you, or because you kept inaccurate business records, or for a number of other legitimate business reasons, cases that should be civil matters end up as criminal prosecutions for securities violations, fraud, embezzlement or other white collar crimes. And these charges can land you in prison for years or even for the rest of your life! In addition to the criminal consequences, just the charges themselves can be devastating to your business, your assets, your reputation and put huge stress on your personal relationships. Criminal Defense Attorney Cameron Talley has tremendous expertise in the litigation of white collar crime, and can help you reclaim your life.
No one knows the weaknesses in your white collar criminal case and can defend it as well as a former DA who previously prosecuted such cases. For years, Mr. Talley worked as a Senior Deputy District Attorney in the Major Fraud Division of the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, where he prosecuted dozens of cases involving securities violations, fraud, embezzlement, grand theft, and even charges of elder abuse related to the transfer of senior citizens’ assets. For example, in one of Mr. Talley’s jury trials he successfully convicted a defendant in who was accused of securities fraud violations totaling over a quarter of a million dollars in loss. That defendant was sentenced to 10 years in state prison. In another case, Mr. Talley prosecuted a defendant charged with 23 counts of securities fraud and grand theft with losses totaling over a million dollars. That defendant was also convicted and was sentenced to over 20 years in state prison. In another case, Mr. Talley successfully briefed and argued a motion in opposition to a defendant’s claim of jury misconduct after he was convicted of defrauding a victim of over five million dollars. White collar cases like this are complicated, often involving thousands of pages of discovery, knowledge of business, and the ability to engage forensic accountants and other expert witnesses. To navigate these complicated matters a criminal defense attorney needs the kind of experience that Mr. Talley has obtained.
As a criminal defense attorney, Mr. Talley has a long track record of successfully defending high profile white collar clients. As an Associate Attorney working in the Los Angeles office of the Chicago based law firm Kirkland & Ellis, he assisted Managing Partner Stephen C. Neil in the successful appeal by Charles Keating after his conviction in the Lincoln Savings and loan case. After his successful appeal, Mr. Keating never served another day in custody! Mr. Talley also assisted Mr. Richard Marmaro (of the law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom) in the successful defense of Meryl Lynch’s number one salesman worldwide, Mr. Michael Stamenson, who was connected to the Orange County bankruptcy – the largest municipal bankruptcy in United States history. That Meryl Lynch executive was never charged by any state or federal agency and never served a day in custody.
Mr. Talley has always had a passionate interest in the field of white collar crime. Even while attending law school at the University of California, Berkeley, Mr. Talley served a clerkship at the United States Attorney’s Office in San Francisco where he assisted in the prosecution of white collar cases.
