Initiating a defense against fraud allegations

Fraud is often considered to be when an individual intentionally misrepresents a material fact, and with this knowledge of falsity, induces another to act, causing that person to suffer injury or damages. These acts of deceit or trickery can be very damaging to those that fall victim to these crimes; however, those accused of committing such a crime can suffer damages to their personal and professional life, as many of these criminal allegations stem from a person's role or position in the workplace.

White collar crimes have the tendency, like most crimes, to carry serious consequences. And depending on where the supposed crime occurred and what career a person holds, an allegation of fraud can be very detrimental even if the accused is not convicted. Thus, it is vital that defendants in Baton Rouge and elsewhere understand their rights and criminal defense strategies available to them.

Our attorneys take the time to fully understand the criminal allegations and the evidence used against out clients. By applying all applicable laws, we can gain a better picture on how to reduce or dismiss the charges against our clients.

Allegations of fraud can tarnish a person's reputation; therefore, we are quick to help our clients avoid these unfortunate consequences. Additionally, we help meet the goals of our clients by exploring the mechanisms used to collect evidence against them. If evidence was not legally obtained or is incomplete, this could be used to help poke holes in the prosecution's case. Suppressing evidence is a great way to reduce and even dismiss the charges against you.
