Accused of fraud? Get comprehensive assistance from experienced fraud defense attorney Michael L. Fell.

Any time you deliberately use deception to secure an unfair or unlawful gain for yourself—or to cause someone else to suffer a loss—you could be accused of fraud. Though it is true that the penalties for fraud vary depending on the amount of the alleged fraudulent gain or loss, this doesn’t mean that you can just coast through a low-level fraud case without representation.


Because all fraud charges are “crimes of moral turpitude.”

This means that in addition to criminal penalties such as prison time, fines, and restitution, fraud convictions can also carry dire consequences for your immigration status and/or your career. Non-citizens may be deported and not allowed to return and professionals such as doctors, nurses, and lawyers may face professional discipline, including possible loss of their licenses.
