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. In order to be convicted of this crime, there must be significant proof that fraud was committed with purposeful intent.

It is important to enlist the help of a team of attorneys who can look at the situation from different angles. Our firm works as a team, and through our differing perspectives, we can observe details that may solidify your case.

Types of Fraud

Laws governing the crime of fraud are covered under California Penal Code §484. Under this code, every individual who shall "fraudulently appropriate property" will be guilty of this crime. There are many different types of fraud that can create complex issues that are difficult to defend.

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.
