Protecting Your Rights When Facing Fraud Charges

People tend to be very sensitive about money and property. There is a stigma attached to people who have committed fraud, no matter how large or small, that may take years to dissipate. If you are convicted on a fraud charge, that mark will stay with you, making your life more difficult in many ways.

We listen to your story, which we compare to the accusations against you. A thorough investigation of the evidence acquired by the prosecution is conducted, and we obtain any other available evidence that may have been overlooked. If necessary, we bring in expert consultants. Our attorneys search for all plausible defenses in your case. We also pursue alternatives to sentencing, such as payment of restitution, which may result in a dismissal upon satisfaction.

We establish a close, honest and upfront relationship with you. This allows us to be clear about all of your options and work to mitigate as much damage as we can. If we need to take your case to court, our lawyers have extensive trial experience. We seek to obtain the best possible outcome for you.
