The federal government prosecutes numerous different kinds of fraud. Fraud charges are often alleged in order to bring a case in federal court where the penalties are stiffer and procedures less flexible.
Building the best possible defense against fraud allegations requires time and experience and it starts with hiring an experienced, aggressive criminal defense attorney. The government often spends years investigating. In order to build the best possible defense, we conduct an independant investigation and develop our own evidence to defend against federal crime allegations. Often times our work as criminal defense lawyers begins before formal charges are filed.
Tax evasion, tax fraud and other tax crimes may be charged against the taxpayer as well as other people such as business partners, corporate officers, and certain fiduciaries if those people are involved in the tax matters under investigation.

The federal government actively investigates white collar crime and prosecutes alleged mortgage fraud schemes involving investors, brokers and straw buyers.
Mortgage fraud and real estate fraud charges are serious federal crimes. People are prosecuted not only on the actual loss caused by the mortgage fraud scheme but also for intended loss which can carry long prison terms. People accused of mortgage fraud or real estate fraud need experienced criminal defense attorneys who understand the mortgage industry to defend them in these serious federal crimes.
Mail & Wire Fraud
Mail and wire fraud charges are often used to bring fraud cases into federal court, where penalties are stiffer and procedures can be less flexible than in state court. Mail fraud and wire fraud charges are often charged in financial or white collar cases. If you have been charged with mail or wire fraud, you need to consult an experienced federal criminal defense lawyer.
Mail fraud alleges some part of a criminal scheme was carried out by use of mail. In a wire fraud allegation the government claims a phone or email was used to further a criminal scheme.
Mail fraud and wire fraud are used to prosecute a wide range of white collar crimes. If you believe you are being investigated or have been charged with mail fraud or wire fraud offenses, our experienced, aggressive criminal defense lawyers can defend you against these federal crime allegations.

With the passage of the Affordable Care Act and the national focus on healthcare costs, health care providers and billing services have come under ever closer scrutiny, resulting in a surge in Medicare fraud and healthcare fraud charges.
