Skilled Defense Against Wire or Mail Fraud Charges
For decades, federal prosecutors have turned to mail and wire fraud charges to go after various alleged instances of fraud. The term “mail fraud” may seem a bit dated in the digital age, but it is still a staple of many white collar prosecutions. If you are facing such charges, the time is now to get a skilled defense lawyer on your side.
Mail fraud is any scheme to defraud where it was foreseeable that the mails would be used to help commit the fraud. Wire fraud is the same except that it requires electronic transactions such as email, bank wires, television and others. However, in both mail and wire fraud, the use of the mail or electronic communication does not have to be an important part of the scheme.

What Evidence Do Prosecutors Have?
There is a big difference between a transaction that didn’t work out as intended and a transaction based on fraud. In order to make a white-collar criminal charge for mail or wire fraud stick, prosecutors have to show intent to defraud.
Our lawyers are adept at attacking allegations of fraud and in dealing with prosecutors. An investment opportunity that didn’t pan out as planned isn’t a scheme just because it didn’t produce the payoff everyone hoped for. A transaction is not fraudulent simply because of innocent mistake or misrepresentation.
We always hold prosecutors to their duty of producing the evidence they have, so it can be subject to proper scrutiny. We also do our own investigation to get to the bottom of what happened and advocate for you in getting it resolved.
