Orlando Fraud Lawyers 

Comprehensive Fraud Defense in Central Florida 

Fraud is a broad category of “white-collar” crime that is based on false pretenses, deception, and misrepresentation. Fraud crimes are those that seek financial gain or benefit at the expense of alleged victims. These victims can be private citizens, businesses and corporations, or government agencies, such as in the case of welfare fraud. Fraud is covered under Florida law that outlines fraudulent practices and various crimes under its heading.

Being accused of fraud can have severe consequences involving criminal penalties as well as the loss of your reputation, potential loss of professional licenses, and a criminal record that can hamper future employment and other life opportunities. It is essential in any investigation by law enforcement, or formal charges filed, that you bring in a competent and dedicated criminal defense lawyer. At Longwell Lawyers, you can work with a team of proven trial lawyers and a former Florida state prosecutor who understands what you are up against. Our team will prepare your case for trial and work relentlessly to help you avoid or minimize the consequences of fraud allegations.

Penalties for Fraud

How you are charged and the resulting penalties you face for any type of fraud will depend on the nature of the offense and factors such as whether multiple alleged victims were involved, and the amount of financial damage incurred. You may be charged with a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the circumstances. Penalties can include jail or prison time, heavy fines, probation, and potential restitution to victims as well as asset forfeiture for any property used in connection with the crime or proceeds or assets fraudulently obtained. 

At Longwell Lawyers, we know how law enforcement and prosecutors work in these cases and can take effective measures to counteract them. We search for flaws and weaknesses in the state’s case against you as well as for favorable evidence that can be used to your benefit. We use all our resources in exhaustive case preparation designed to help you obtain an optimal result whether through negotiations with the prosecutor or by trial in court.
