Any federal charge demands skilled defense representation. At my San Antonio firm, Kevin L. Collins, P.C., I draw on more than 27 years’ experience as both a prosecutor and defense attorney to provide sound legal representation to Texans charged with a variety of federal fraud crimes. I know that the full resources of the federal government will be brought to bear in your case, requiring a defense that’s up to the challenge. I am fully prepared to defend you against federal fraud and other serious charges.
Fraud can be described as an intentional deception or misrepresentation for the personal benefit of the person engaging in the fraud or another person other than the victim. Because federal jurisdiction is constitutionally limited, the U.S. Code prohibits fraud in specified circumstances. These include:
As a white collar criminal defense attorney with decades of experience, I know that fraud crimes are usually prosecuted as felonies, which may carry prison sentences and steep fines. The amount of prison time will depend on the crime charged and the defendant’s criminal history but can range up to as much as 30 years in prison. The size of the fines also varies and can be as high as millions of dollars for companies and hundreds of thousands of dollars for individuals. The defendant may also be ordered to pay restitution to the victims. If a defendant is given probation, which will avoid prison time, it will still require him or her to report regularly to a probation officer and subject the probationer to certain conditions. The federal government has almost unlimited resources to devote to the prosecution of fraud. If you are charged with or investigated for fraud, it is essential to retain criminal defense counsel who understands the federal court system and federal fraud law.
If the federal government investigates or charges you with any type of criminal fraud, Kevin L. Collins, P.C. in San Antonio provides experienced defense representation. Call me at 210-598-8629 or contact me online to schedule a consultation.
