Being charged with fraud can be an overwhelming, life-altering experience for you and your family.
In most fraud cases, the potential consequences get more serious as the dollar values involved increase.
Evidence of fraud can create a complicated paper or electronic trail that must be analyzed by legal experts, and often also by forensic auditors and accountants.
What is Fraud?
Simply put, fraud is a deliberate deception for unlawful gain. Often the term “white-collar crime” is used to describe fraud crimes committed by individuals, businesses, and government professionals. Here are some examples:
- Tax fraud
- Credit Card Fraud
- Contractor fraud
- Bank fraud
- Mail fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Conspiracy to commit fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Healthcare fraud

Fraud charges may be more serious when the alleged fraud involves your employer or similar breaches of trust.
