Types of Fraud Cases
State and federal investigators have increasingly been pursuing fraud charges at all levels in response to the recent mortgage crisis and misconduct on Wall Street. Typically, these cases involve mortgage fraud, welfare fraud, securities fraud, healthcare fraud, mail fraud, accounting fraud, computer fraud, credit card fraud, bank fraud, embezzlement, tax fraud and evasion, identity theft, and forgery.
Conviction rates in federal cases in Pennsylvania and New Jersey are higher than in state courts and often involve harsher penalties. Investigators are extremely thorough in developing their cases and may take months or even years to indict a suspect. Because the state and federal systems retain dual sovereignty over these cases, an accused may even be tried twice. For this reason, it is crucial you retain an experienced and skilled attorney if you have been suspected or charged with allegations of fraud.
