Overview of Fraud & Theft Crime Laws
Fraud and theft are very general offenses that generally relate to crimes of dishonesty. There are dozens of specific crimes charged both in federal and state court that relate to crimes associated with theft and fraud. Offenses that fall under the umbrella of theft and fraud can relate to the most simple of cases like petit theft which is nothing more than shoplifting. At the other end of the spectrum would be a Medicare fraud scheme that bilked the federal government out of millions of dollars. In either situation, both simple and complex cases can have far-reaching ramifications and consequences. The criminal defense attorneys at Donet, McMillan, & Trontz, P.A. treat each client's case equally, regardless of the complexity of the case.
Miami and South Florida fraud cases are highly complex. Our lawyers excel in defending the aforementioned types of fraud cases. These cases require special attention, because hundreds, and sometimes even thousands of documents the state or the government intends to use to prosecute your case, must be thoroughly reviewed and analyzed to set your defense in motion.
Defenses for Charges of Fraud
All individuals being investigated or prosecuted by law enforcement for fraud must understand that there are several defenses to these types of cases. Our criminal defense team is able to perform a critical analysis of the evidence against our client and show that he or she did not have knowledge or the requisite intent to be involved or criminally liable in the alleged scheme to defraud. Although all of these crimes have a fraudulent component, that does not necessarily mean that everyone involved was aware of the fraud.
