Accused of Fraud in Memphis?

Consult With a Memphis Fraud Attorney - Call (901) 878-5434!

A person commits fraud when he or she intentionally uses misrepresentation of important facts in order to deceive others and obtain a certain outcome that causes others to experience loss (usually financial loss). In addition to providing false information, fraud can be committed through an omission of important facts.

Examples of fraud include submitting a false insurance claim in order to receive money, or intentionally failing to disclose certain information on tax forms. There are many fraud offenses that involve using personal information that belongs to others, such as when someone opens a credit card in another person's name.

If you have been accused of this white collar crime, you could be facing some stiff penalties upon conviction. Our capable Memphis criminal defense lawyers at The Claiborne Ferguson Law Firm, P.A. can help you strategically work to minimize or even completely eliminate the harmful repercussions you are up against. Our lawyers can investigate the facts related to your criminal charges, analyze evidence and determine the most effective criminal defense methods for your case.
