Types of Fraud include, but are not limited to:
Since fraud crimes often affect many individuals, government offices, and taxpayers, these crimes are aggressively prosecuted, and the need to have experienced legal counsel in your corner is paramount in protecting and defending your legal rights and freedoms, as well as letting your story to be told.
A criminal offense of fraud involves intentional acts of deception through misrepresentation of facts by one or more individuals for the purpose of financial gain, to obtain benefits which they are otherwise not entitled, to deprive others of their property or assets, or to receive other types of privileges, compensation, or services which the accused would not have received if the true facts were disclosed.
Fraud may also be made by an omission or purposeful failure to state material facts, which nondisclosure makes other statements misleading. In short, omitting relevant facts is just as liable as manufacturing facts which are untrue.
In order for the prosecution to obtain a conviction for a criminal fraud charge they must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you intentionally and knowingly committed the crime (or crimes) you are being tried for. We will put every piece of evidence under a microscope, as well as the actions of law enforcement as they pertain to your case in an effort to prove your innocence or show the jury and/or judge that reasonable doubt of your guilt does in fact exist.
