Criminal Fraud

Providing Knowledgeable Criminal Fraud Defense

Criminal fraud involves willfully making false statements or committing deceptive actions toward another person, business, or government entity. In simpler terms, fraud generally involves lying or purposefully concealing the truth whether or not there is a financial gain. Under the Florida or federal statutes, fraud is an illegal activity with harsh consequences for those found guilty.

Defending All Types of Fraud

Criminal fraud cases are often categorized as white collar crimes. Fraud cases can be charged as either misdemeanors or felonies, but rarely are charged as misdemeanors. This is often dependent on the value of property involved in the fraud or if the crime occurs across state lines or through the mails or through the Internet.

Our attorneys are experienced in defending criminal fraud cases involving:

  • Tax fraud or tax evasion
  • False tax statements
  • Wire fraud involving the use of telephones, cellphones, faxes or e-mails
  • Investment, securities, or bank fraud including Ponzi schemes
  • Insurance fraud including health care fraud
  • Identity theft including credit card fraud or forgery
  • Mail fraud involving the use of the U.S. mail
  • Racketeering (RICO)
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations

Understanding the Consequences

If you are convicted of criminal fraud, you may be facing serious consequences — incarceration, significant fines and the forfeiture of assets you spent a lifetime earning. Your life may never be the same. Your reputation could be forever tarnished.
