WHITE COLLAR CRIMINAL DEFENSE
Although there is no agreed definition, white collar crimes typically are nonviolent crimes committed for financial gain, often in the course of a professional person’s occupation. Such crimes include fraud, bribery, embezzlement, and forgery. Mr. McCabe not only taught criminal law for 20 years but also has been involved in noted cases. He was part of a team of lawyers that successfully defended one of his former law students in the highly-publicized Houston City Hall Bribery Case.
Additionally, in a case on behalf of a former officer in a savings and loan association, Mr. McCabe argued an important politically-charged constitutional issue in New Orleans before the entire court of 17 federal judges. The appeals court sent the case back to the trial court in a divided decision. The case then settled on terms very favorable to the defendant, allowing the defendant to retain his law license.
