Fraud • Embezzlement Charge • Theft 
Embezzlement Sentence • Embezzlement by Theft

Fraud is defined as an intentional deception, or false statement, that is meant to injure a person. In its broadest sense, a fraud is a deception made for personal gain. The “injury” in fraud is the depriving a person of money or other property that rightfully belongs to that person. With such a broad definition, it is no wonder that there are so many different types of fraud, some examples include:

Bank Fraud 
Accounting Fraud 
Bankruptcy Fraud 
Internet Fraud 
Credit Card Fraud 
Healthcare Fraud 
Mail Fraud 
Medicaid Fraud 
Money Laundering 
Securities Fraud 
Tax Fraud 
Wire Fraud 
Telemarketing Fraud 

Fraud can be a complicated criminal offense that should not be confused with forgery, a similar crime. Fraud is a crime that typically involves general intent, while forgery involves a specific purpose and a specific thought process. Clearly the line between the two offenses is one that is best left to be determined by one of experienced Fraud Defense Attorneys.

Know your rights.  Don't forfeit them without a fight.

If you have been arrested or charged with a crime in Michigan  or elsewhere in Wayne  County, it is important to speak with an experienced Michigan criminal defense attorney about your rights and options.  Many people know that they have rights when they have been arrested or charged with a crime.  

Surprisingly, however, many people chose to essentially forfeit these rights by not fully utilizing their state and federal statutory and constitutional protections both before and after they are arrested or charged with a crime.  People seeking legal advice often call us after they have already plead guilty or accepted some other resolution to their case and believe that they have made a mistake.  Often, they felt pressured into accepting a resolution that they did not believe was fair or appropriate.

Unfortunately, by this time, it is often extremely difficult for us to assist them because their case has already been resolved.  And, in Michigan,  undoing a guilty plea can be very complex.  In nearly every possible instance, it best to retain experienced counsel as soon as possible.  

This allows your criminal attorney to explore all of your options and assist you in making a truly informed decision about how you should proceed.  It also allows your lawyer to thoroughly review all of the evidence and properly investigate the matter.

The city or the state has the burden of proving their case in every criminal matter.  Make them do it

In all Michigan criminal cases, the city or the county is required to prove their case beyond a reasonable doubt.  This is a substantial burden.  In many cases, you may also have one or more legal defenses available to you.  But these statutory defenses must be properly raised and argued.

All defendants have the right to an attorney at all court hearings.  And, it is important that you have a lawyer by your side at all criminal proceedings.  This is true even if you do not believe that the offense with which you have been charged is a serious one, and it is especially true if you believe that you have done nothing wrong and are innocent.  

If you choose to hire us as your legal representation, we will handle all court appearances connected to your case. We will fight for the best outcome possible so that you can get on with your life.

Defend your rights. You have the right to remain silent.
If you have been arrested and charged with a crime, you need to speak with an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible about your options.

All crimes, including both felonies and misdemeanors, must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a tough standard to meet, which may give a defendant opportunities to fight a charge. However, not every potential strategy may be obvious to someone who is not experienced in handling these cases. We have the knowledge, experience, and tenacity to investigate your case in detail and explore all of your options. It is important to retain an attorney as soon as you realize that you are being investigated. Sometimes hiring a criminal defense attorney in the Detroit area or in the Wayne county area early in the process can affect whether a prosecutor pursues charges.
We Keep Clients Informed 

We believe that an informed client can help in the defense of his/her case. We review and share with a client all discovery received from the prosecutor. This means copies of all police reports, audio and video tapes, witness statement, scientific evidence such as DNA, ballistics, blood work, expert opinions & more.

We Formulate A Defense Plan

All criminal cases are different but we always have a defense plan based on our experience and tactics. Often the defense is simply a failure of the prosecution to prove the case. The burden is on the state to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Good cross examination can create that doubt.

We Investigate

We thoroughly investigate your criminal case. This means taking the statements of witnesses, independently testing the evidence, DNA, fingerprints, ballistics. We analyze the crime scene, take photos, use a lie detector, consult with experts - whatever it takes to win your case.
