Bennett & Bennett
Fraud is an intentional misrepresentation to gain a legal benefit (usually money) that you are not entitled to.
Fraud offenses are most commonly prosecuted in federal court, in the context of wire fraud (using telecommunications devices to commit fraud), mail fraud (using the U.S. mail to commit fraud), bank fraud (defrauding a bank, for example lying to get a loan), and government benefits fraud (lying to the government to get money, for example Medicare benefits or PPP loans).
The federal prosecution of a fraud case involves a huge volume of documents, as well as—often—wiretaps and informants. The defense of such a case requires the ability to find, in that huge volume of information, the parts that tell a story favorable to the client.
