Fighting Back Against Allegations Of Fraud
We have developed a core competency in representing individuals facing charges of white collar crimes such as:
- Medicare-Medicaid fraud
- Billing fraud
- Tax fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Bank fraud
- Business fraud
These are very serious crimes, which often carry lengthy prison sentences and heavy fines. With this in mind, our firm will take aggressive steps to protect you.
Grand Jury Investigations
If you have reason to believe that you are under investigation, or have received a subpoena, it is in your best interests to reach out to a criminal defense lawyer right away. Preparation for a grand jury hearing is absolutely essential — if you are not adequately prepared, you may make a statement that leads to indictment.
Our lawyers can provide guidance concerning how best to respond to a prosecutor’s questions. Additionally, we can examine the prosecutor’s case to determine whether they have enough evidence to charge you. When we discover that the evidence is weak, we are able to negotiate for a lesser charge — and, in some circumstances, we can obtain a complete dismissal. Moreover, if the government won’t listen, we will defend you if the grand jury indicts you.
Some criminal convictions are the result of mistakes made by prosecutors, judges, juries, and even defense lawyers. We have extensive experience handling criminal appeals. Attorney Marc Garber can review your conviction, sentence, or case to determine whether an appeal is possible. Some grounds for appeal include:
- The evidence did not prove a crime
- Evidence was illegally obtained by the government through unlawful search or seizure
- The judge wrongly denied a motion to suppress evidence
- The judge did not allow your attorney to present certain evidence in your favor
- The attorney who represented you made a critical mistake
- Other procedural errors
