Skilled in Defending Clients Accused of Fraud

Experienced criminal defense attorney protects your rights

Fraud — the intentional taking of another’s money or property by false pretenses — can be prosecuted as a serious crime, either on its own or as an element of other state and federal crimes. People convicted of fraud or fraud-related crimes face hefty fines and lengthy prison sentences. If you have been charged with fraud or believe you are the subject of an investigation, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer by your side.  I will bring the full force of my nearly 30 years of federal criminal law practice to protect your rights as I work to secure a favorable outcome in your case.

Seasoned Defense against all types of fraud charges

I have an established track record of successfully protecting the rights of individuals accused of fraud and fraud-related criminal offenses. My recent cases have involved allegations of bribery and gratuities and other fraudulent conduct related to government contracting, mortgage lending, health care, immigration and labor certification. Other areas of fraud defense include:

  • Mail and wire fraud — I represent individuals charged with using the U.S. mail or interstate electronic means such as email, fax, cell phones or Internet communications to further a scheme to deprive someone of money or property, such as a Ponzi scheme, bank fraud or healthcare fraud.
  • Credit card fraud — I defend people charged with deceptive conduct against credit card companies, including credit card theft, credit card counterfeiting and obtaining someone else’s credit card through mail fraud or identity theft.
  • Tax fraud — Individual taxpayers, companies and even tax preparers can be indicted for tax fraud, defined as not paying taxes that are lawfully due with intent to defraud the government. I defend taxpayers charged with fraud in connection with failure to collect or pay taxes, failure to file a return and other tax irregularities.

If you have been charged with a fraud or a fraud-related crime, time is of the essence in mounting a defense. The prosecution will already have been working hard to build its case. Whether the grand jury is led by an independent counsel or an assistant U.S. attorney, I begin preparing a defensive strategy from the initial client contact.
