Fraud is a form of white collar crime that can fall into any of the following categories:

  • real estate fraud
  • bankruptcy fraud
  • check fraud
  • credit card fraud
  • healthcare fraud
  • insurance fraud
  • mortgage fraud
  • welfare fraud
  • Fraud charges are oftentimes loosely based on the complaints of an aggrieved party after a failed business relationship, family misunderstanding, or employment termination. There are times when drug addiction or a financial crisis can lead an otherwise trusted employee or normally law abiding citizen to exercise poor judgement resulting in arrest and criminal prosecution.

    At the first hint that you or a loved one are the target of a fraud accusation it is critical that expert legal counsel is contacted immediately for a consultation. An experienced criminal lawyer can help you protect your right to remain silent and avoid all police interrogation as well as build a strong legal defense to fight the charges.
