usiness and Financial Criminal Fraud


California businesses and individuals jeopardized by accusations of fraud know that not all criminal defense attorneys are the same.

Federal and state fraud statutes cast a wide net, covering securities fraud, bank and mortgage fraud, as well as Medicare fraud and medical billing fraud (coding fraud).

John Kirby has handled all of these types of fraud cases, and is familiar with the subtitles of the investigation and prosecution of types of cases.  Individuals with little or no criminal liability can often get caught up in the government’s net, so it is particularly important that individuals consult an attorney as soon as they become aware that a government investigation is ongoing.

If you are approached by federal or state agents, immediately tell them that you need to speak with an attorney before speaking with them, and engage an attorney immediately.  This can make the difference between being a witness or charged in an indictment.  If you are indicted or otherwise charged, Mr. Kirby is equipped to defend you vigorously, whether you wish to compromise with the government, or fight the case all the way to trial.  Contact Mr. Kirby if you have any indication that you are being investigated by the government.  With his experience as a former prosecutor, he will be able to gauge your potential liability and engage with the prosecuting attorney to understand the government’s position  and interest in you individually.

Why Are Business and Financial Criminal Fraud Cases Different

Every type of criminal case comes with unique challenges. Success depends on an attorney’s preparedness for those challenges. We know that business fraud cases are going to come with volumes of evidence, much of which is computer-based. We know that, specifically in federal cases, charges may come after lengthy investigations that may have involved searches and wiretaps. We encourage clients to get us involved during the investigation stage, if possible.

Having handled these matters from the prosecution’s side as well as the defense side, we have an in-depth understanding of all of the elements that go into building a strong case. We provide fraud defense to businesses in all industries, from retail to health care.
