Louisiana fraud: You have a right to a defense

There are many situations where you could make mistakes that end up causing investigations into your business or facility. For instance, if you're a medical provider and seem to be writing too many prescriptions for the same medication, you might be investigated even though you're just doing your job. The same could happen if you're a pharmacist filling a physician's prescription load. In some cases, you could be accused of fraud even if you haven't done anything wrong.

When you're accused of a crime like fraud, you need to defend yourself from the start. By defending your innocence and right to an attorney, you can be sure that you won't be mistreated during any part of the investigation. With the right legal help, it's possible to keep the prying eyes of the media uninvolved in your personal life.

Fraud is considered to be a white collar crime, since it usually takes place in business. You could be facing fraud charges if you've misplaced receipts, charged clients too much or made errors when submitting paperwork to Medicare or Medicaid. Fortunately, there are ways to prove your innocence and to get you back to your normal life as quickly as possible.

The main goal of any defense is to keep you out of the public eye, to protect your integrity and to keep you out of prison. Whether you're accused of environmental crimes or Medicare fraud, you deserve the chance to defend yourself without having the media tarnish your reputation or harassing your family. Visit our white collar crime webpage to learn about how you can defend yourself, your livelihood and your family when an accusation of fraud takes you by surprise.
