For Criminal Defense Or Family Law Representation

Facing fraud charges? Don't wait. Develop a defense strategy now.

Fraud charges are typically complex, and not everyone suspected of fraud is guilty. In fact, some particularly risky business practices may be simply that -- risky -- but that does not necessarily mean that those practices rise to the level of fraud.

Make no mistake, though: if you have been charged with fraud in Texas, or if you believe you are under investigation, you need to seek experienced legal representation as soon as possible. On the state and federal levels, fraud charges are aggressively prosecuted, and the potential penalties upon conviction are severe.

Common Types of Fraud

Fraud is a general term used to describe multiple kinds of criminal behavior. Most often, fraud relates to activities that deceive or misrepresent in order to achieve some sort of financial gain. The most common types of fraud include:

  • Wire fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Healthcare fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Tax evasion
  • Credit card or debit card fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Telemarketing fraud

You could be facing fraud charges on either a state or federal level, and in either situation, the penalties could include prison time, steep fines and asset forfeiture -- not to mention collateral consequences such as reputation damage and family strife.

The potential consequences you face depend largely on the type of fraud allegedly committed, as well as:

  • The amount of money involved
  • Whether a business or individual was the target of the alleged fraud
  • The age of the alleged victim or victims (authorities are cracking down on defrauding elderly people)

Every case is different, and the appropriate defense strategy for your case will depend on your specific situation. It is therefore crucial that you talk to an experienced white collar criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible.
