Mortgage fraud: Mortgage fraud is on the increase, and so is prosecution of suspected mortgage fraud. From homebuyers to bankers, developers and investors, anyone suspected of exaggerating or fabricating the value of assets or earnings to obtain money can be prosecuted.
Health care fraud: When the government suspects Medicare or Medicaid fraud and you are the target of their investigations, you need a defense lawyer who will take immediate steps to protect your rights and assure that no evidence is illegally obtained. Nursing homes, hospitals, clinics, ambulance services, doctors’ offices and individual patients can find themselves targets of investigations into overcharging and falsely submitting bills to Medicare or Medicaid.
Insurance fraud: When an individual or business makes an insurance claim based on fraud, the charges are serious and can require restitution and prison time. If you have been accused of faking injuries or property damage, or if your business is suspected of insurance fraud, contact a fraud charge defense attorney.
Embezzlement: While similar to the criminal charge of larceny, embezzlement is different in two ways. In order to be considered embezzlement, an actual conversion must occur. The second is that the original taking must not be considered trespassing. This means that the accused embezzler must have the right to possess the item and appropriate it correctly.
Racketeering: State and federal prosecutors will often add conspiracy or racketeering (RICO) charges to fraud charges and drug charges. Racketeering is a conspiracy to obtain personal gain through deception of others.
