White Collar Crime
The sooner you have competent counsel involved, the better position you will be in if and when formal charges are filed.
Speaking to the police or other federal agents without counsel on your side is one of the biggest mistakes people make. If you have been asked to speak to the authorities and/or told you don’t need an attorney because you either have nothing to hide or it will get worse if you “lawyer up”, don’t be fooled. Whether you believe that you haven’t done anything wrong or not, don’t go alone.
A fraud conviction of any kind can result in severe penalties. At PGHLAW, we defend clients throughout the Western Pennsylvania area charged with bank fraud, mortgage fraud, and real estate fraud. We are equipped to handle this area, seeking optimal results on behalf of clients facing charges.
PGHLAW represents people who have obtained bank loans by submitting false information, and been charged with bank fraud. Most often, a private individual is charged with bank fraud, but it is not uncommon for a bank employee to also be accused of involvement. Bribery is often involved.
Mortgage fraud is becoming more common since the housing crisis began. If you have been accused of providing false information to obtain a loan, over-reporting assets, or misrepresentation, contact a fraud defense attorney as soon as possible.
