Fraud cases are very complex as compared to other criminal offenses. While many people might feel confident defending themselves against a traffic ticket, a fraud attorney is absolutely necessary for allegations of fraud. Not just any criminal law lawyer will do; it takes a fraud lawyer who specializes in this type of case who will aggressively pursue a positive outcome.
How Our Fraud Attorney Will Defend You
The most important step in forming a defense is to review all the facts. If the charges levied against you are based on insubstantial, circumstantial, or inconsequential evidence, your fraud attorney will build a defense around attacking the prosecutor’s evidence. Your fraud lawyer will also bring in experts in the fields of finance, computer forensics, and insurance professionals to create a comprehensive, aggressive defense.
The lynchpin of a prosecutor’s case is the intent to defraud by the accused. Your fraud attorney will attack this assumption head on in order to destroy the case against you. By proving that our clients did not act with intent to defraud, the prosecutor doesn’t have a valid fraud case to argue.
Fight In Court Or Settle
Your fraud attorney is adept at debating in court and securing settlements and pleas. Since prosecutors have to establish intent to defraud, an effective defense is to exchange community service or cooperating with authorities to show good faith. With the help of an expert fraud lawyer, pleas can be reduced and jail time and penalties eliminated in order to keep our clients’ records clean. If a plea is not applicable outside of court, your fraud attorney will aggressively challenge all charges in court.
