Lawyers Fighting Fraud Charges
People accused of fraud should seek experienced representation from the best fraud defense lawyers in New York, with a long-standing record of success. At Pappalardo & Pappalardo, LLP, we recognize that law enforcement agencies throughout New York are spending a great amount of time and energy pursuing the perpetrators of fraud and other white collar offenses, and that many district attorney offices have even designated white collar crime bureaus that are solely focused on prosecuting these cases.
While these are strong opponents, our 40-plus years of experience have prepared us to take them on, and our record of success is proof of our ability to defend the rights and careers of people like you.
Comprehensive Criminal Fraud Defense
Our lawyers defend against all fraud crimes, including:
- Credit card fraud
- Check fraud
- Bank fraud
- Sports and celebrity memorabilia fraud
- Investment fraud
- Securities and stock fraud
- Health insurance fraud and other kinds of insurance fraud
- Tax fraud
While fraud crimes come with many different labels, many people are simply charged with mail fraud or wire fraud, particularly in federal court. Essentially, any type of fraud that was allegedly committed using the mail, the phone, or the Internet may be charged as mail fraud or wire fraud.
The specific name of the charge is less important than the serious penalties it carries with it. In most cases, a conviction will result in prison time and massive fines – charges that are typically career ending. Our attorneys take every step to reduce charges or minimize penalties, seeking dismissal whenever possible. We encourage anyone charged with a fraud crime to review our success record and see how serious we are about winning cases.
