Cases our securities fraud lawyers handle in New York
If you suspect you are under investigation for any kind of white collar crime, seek legal help immediately. Delaying can only hurt your case. Below are a few examples of the types of cases a Long Island criminal attorney at our firm can assist you with:
- Bank fraud: Any type of behavior that seeks to ultimately defraud a bank of funds is considered bank fraud by law enforcement.
- Computer fraud: The use of a computer to commit identity theft or any degree of fraud is a serious crime that is usually prosecuted on the federal level.
- Securities fraud: If law enforcement accuses you of stockholder theft or deceiving investors into making decisions based on invalid information, you may be charged with securities fraud. Our New York City attorneys can investigate your case and help you build a strong defense against these charges.
- Credit card fraud: Unauthorized use of a credit card to obtain items of value is considered a white collar crime.
- Mortgage fraud: Misrepresenting information on a mortgage loan application, or hard money loan, is becoming more common given the current economy. If you face charges of mortgage fraud in NYC, our white collar crime defense lawyers can help you fight back.
Although nonviolent in nature, white collar crime is not victimless. Because of the propensity for individuals to profit from and repeat this type of offense, the government penalizes offenders harshly. Without the help of a New York City attorney skilled in mortgage fraud or Internet fraud, you could face costly fines and a lengthy prison sentence.
