Fraud Cases

Has somebody accused you of fraud? It is worrisome in a civil case and frightening in a criminal case. In criminal cases, the penalties for mail fraud or wire fraud include substantial prison sentences and crushing fines. In civil cases, such as a securities enforcement action brought by the SEC or claims brought by a former business partner, financial exposure can be significant. If you are facing criminal or civil fraud claims, or suspect you are under investigation, you need experienced counsel right away.

We also represent fraud victims. Our understanding of the law in this area helps us build formidable civil cases against wrongdoers. We’ve recovered millions of dollars for aggrieved parties defrauded by businesses and individuals.


Our attorneys have decades of experience litigating fraud cases on behalf of individuals and companies. Examples include:

  • Wire fraud

  • Mail fraud

  • Securities fraud

  • Internet fraud

  • Tax fraud

  • Contractual fraud

  • Unfair business practices

  • Debit and credit card fraud
