North Carolina Fraud Defense Lawyer

The term fraud pertains to a broad category of crimes. These crimes can be punishable at the state or federal level depending on the circumstances and nature of the crime committed and the value of the property involved.

A fraud charge in federal court can consist of any fraud against the Government. The fraud could be related to COVID PPP loans or other COVID related loans, natural disaster funding fraud, such as FEMA fraud, or fraud like mail or wire fraud. The fraud amount drives sentencing in federal court. It is of the utmost importance to have an experienced attorney to assist you in cases such as these which can have lofty jail sentences as well as requiring re payment of any monies.
