Defense Against State And Federal White Collar Crime Charges
Despite what the prosecution would have you believe, the “facts” involved in fraud and financial crime cases are not always hard facts. Most white collar crime cases hinge on types of information and transactions that can be interpreted in multiple ways under the law. Moreover, it is often highly doubtful that the accused individual intended to take advantage of anyone, much less commit a criminal offense.
At Fenbert & Associates, we can scrutinize the prosecution’s “facts” in your case and develop an effective strategy for protecting your rights and future. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can start fighting for you.

Understanding The Charge Against You — And Your Defense Options
If you have been charged with fraud or other financial crimes, the basic premise of the charge against you is that you knowingly misrepresented a material fact to someone who in turn relied on that information, and consequently that person lost something. Under that general description, there are many types of criminal charges, including:
- Wire fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Health care fraud
- Money laundering
- Identity theft
Defending against such charges often involves asking some basic questions:
- Was a material fact really misrepresented?
- Was a material fact intentionally misrepresented?
- Did someone really rely the information to make a decision, or did other factors influence the decision?
- Did that person really lose something because of the information provided by you?
Many types of gun charges are prosecuted on the federal level. Our firm has extensive experience in gun charge defense.
Whatever your situation may be, if you have been charged with fraud or another white collar crime, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer on your side as soon as possible. If you have been contacted by investigators on the state or federal level, there is no time to waste. Early intervention by a skilled defense lawyer is often crucial in ultimately securing a favorable outcome.
With federal charges, the stakes are especially high. Get in touch with us today if you have been charged with a federal crime or believe you may be under investigation. Not every criminal defense attorney handles federal cases. We do.
