Fraud Investigations in New York
In fraud charges, law enforcement and government agencies may conduct extensive investigations, including surveillance and gathering data from your electronic communications, to build evidence against the accused. Such investigations may be conducted over months or even years before a prosecutor presses charges. This means even innocuous actions, emails, and phone calls can be used against you.
The Mirvis Law Firm, P.C. will look at this evidence to determine if unlawful actions, arrests, searches, or other violations of your constitutional rights occurred, and if so, Attorney Mirvis will fight to get your charges reduced or even dropped entirely, when possible.
Types of Fraud Charges
Fraud charges require a sophisticated and nuanced defense strategy. Attorney Mirvis has the experience to handle the following:
- Bank fraud
- Cares Act PPP and EIDL fraud
- Computer and internet crimes
- Money laundering
- Government program fraud
- Healthcare fraud
- Wire fraud
- Any of the above leading to RICO charges
Fraud charges stemming from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act; Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL); and other government Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loans and payments are on the rise, with prosecutors from the Department of Justice seeking to prosecute individuals, business owners, and CEOs accused of misusing funds or misrepresenting themselves in order to get funds. In these cases, The Mirvis Law Firm, P.C. can counsel you on conducting an internal audit, redirecting funds to be in compliance, or repaying benefits before charges are filed. If you believe you may be under investigation for a CARES Act or EIDL fraud, contact Attorney Mirvis immediately.
Building Reasonable Doubt
Sometimes, challenging a fraud charge requires your lawyer to build reasonable doubt against the prosecution’s charges. This likely means disproving that a defendant obtained property or sensitive information by:
- Propagating a false impression
- Failing to correct this false impression
- Withholding information that would affect the alleged victim’s judgement
Disproving the intent to do the above may help prevent a conviction or dismiss the charges against you. Attorney Mirvis understands that good people can get caught in the crosshairs of bad situations, especially when money is on the line.
