Wire & Mail Fraud
Any criminal activity furthered by use of U.S. mail, telephone service, or the Internet can be charged as mail or wire fraud. If you have been accused of mail or wire fraud, you face federal criminal charges. Because the penalties are severe, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side.

Mail and Wire Fraud Defense
In many cases, mail and wire fraud charges are filed when it is difficult for the prosecution to prove another crime. These charges can be filed in relation to a number of criminal activities, including:
- Bank fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Identity theft
- Online auction fraud
- Ponzi schemes
Mail and wire fraud charges are often tacked onto other charges to increase potential penalties. The penalties for mail or wire fraud could add up to 20 years on a prison sentence.
If you are facing federal fraud charges, it is important to have an experienced defense lawyer on your side. Do not talk to a federal official about the charge until you have consulted with your attorney. We are prepared to get involved early in the process, to proactively build your case and counter the claims of the prosecution.
