DuPage County Fraud Criminal Defense Lawyers
Identity Theft, Health Care Fraud, Credit Card Fraud, Insurance Fraud, and Mail Fraud
Generally, the crime of fraud covers a broad range of activities that involves obtaining money, goods or services through deceit or misrepresentation rather than paying for what is received. State and federal authorities have focused substantial manpower and resources toward pursuing these types of financial crimes in recent years. Many high profile fraud cases have involved defendants receiving lengthy terms in prison that exceed the sentences received by violent offenders where the fraud cases involve numerous counts.
Many fraud claims can be extremely complex and involve accompanying charges of conspiracy. When our DuPage County fraud defense attorneys represent an individual accused of fraud, we often utilize a forensic account or other experts to ensure that all appropriate evidence is gathered, and the evidence supporting the prosecutor’s case is properly evaluated.
