Fraud And Identity Theft

There are a wide variety of offenses that qualify as fraud crimes, and they all can carry stiff penalties. Fraud and identity theft cases are often constructed on complex evidence that can be refuted, and must be handled by criminal defense attorneys who know how to break down each element of the charge and systematically find the flaws in the prosecution's case.
