Bribery, or the trading of gifts for government influence, is a serious white collar crime. For that reason, it is essential to have an attorney represent the accused as early as possible in any bribery case.

It is important to understand the nature of bribery and why you need an attorney who will develop the best defense possible to these charges. Bribery is the offer or acceptance of anything of value (e.g., money, gifts) in exchange for the influence of a government/public official or employee (e.g., government contracts, favorable treatment). Almost always, both the person offering the bribe and the person accepting the bribe can be charged with bribery.
The penalties for bribery are severe. Punishments can include prison time, fines, probation and other penalties. In addition, a conviction for bribery can bring about serious reputation damage, affecting your personal and professional future.
