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.

Attacking the Evidence

The evidence in fraud cases is not always as strong as criminal prosecutors make it out to be. In mortgage fraud cases, for example, they may have a loan application with false information on it. First of all, we will determine how they are going to prove that the information was not correct at the time the application was completed. Since they are charging the real estate broker with fraud, or some other party other than the person who bought the property, they also need to prove that the accused was privy to the fraudulent information. Did the party who made the purchase tell the accused the information was inaccurate? Was the accused’s signature forged? We will hold prosecutors to their burden of proof as we attack the evidence and pursue the best possible outcome.
