Are you facing fraud charges?

Fraud is described as the intentional deception that is performed for the purpose of personal gain, usually financial gain that causes damage or loss to another individual or company.

Our firm works as a team, and through our differing perspectives, we can observe details that may solidify your case.

Types of Fraud

Types of fraud include:

Penalties for fraud are determined by many factors, including the charge and how the actions are classified. There must be sufficient proof of the fraud. Felony charges typically carry harsher punishments than those charged as misdemeanors. Those convicted of fraud should reasonably expect to compensate for damages. Jail times and heavy fines are also potential forms of punishment.
