Are You Looking for a Fraud Criminal Defense Attorney to Represent You?

The crime of fraud is a general term that covers a wide range of offenses involving dishonesty – intentionally misrepresenting a fact to another person and causing that person a financial loss, since that person relied on that misrepresented fact. The fact must be a substantial misrepresentation affecting the other person’s decision making process.

Civil penalties include restitution for the loss and fines, as well as the requirement to pay attorney’s fees. Depending on the nature of the offense, the crime of fraud can be charged in State or Federal court.
