Attorney For Fraud and Money Laundering Charges in Collin County, Texas

McKinney TX Financial Crimes Defense Lawyers

The category of criminal offenses commonly known as "white-collar crimes" includes illegal activity such as fraud, money laundering, forgery, embezzlement, and much more. Also known as "financial crimes," these offenses are nearly always non-violent in nature, but they are taken very seriously by the courts. In fact, a large percentage of fraud and money laundering cases are prosecuted at the federal level, which often results in more serious charges and possible penalties than at the state level. A conviction on federal fraud or money laundering charges will almost certainly result in prison time, even if it is your first offense.

Federal Fraud Defense Attorneys in Prosper and Allen

Federal law recognizes many different types of fraud, ranging from fairly simple offenses such as credit card fraud to more complicated crimes such as securities or real estate fraud. At our firm, we understand that every type of fraud includes specific elements and unique contexts, which all contribute to the severity of the charges and associated penalties.

Fraud crimes, however, generally do include many of the same elements, regardless of the specifics. If you are charged with any type of federal fraud crime, prosecutors will attempt to show that you lied or engaged in some type of deception to acquire something of value from another person. If the alleged deception involved more than one person working together, you could also face charges for criminal conspiracy.

Under federal law, fraud-related charges are possible for:

  • Credit card fraud;
  • Tax fraud;
  • Bankruptcy fraud;
  • Forgery;
  • Insurance fraud;
  • Medicare or Medicaid fraud;
  • Check fraud;
  • Fraudulent or deceptive business practices;
  • Securities fraud; and
  • Immigration fraud.

Dallas County Money Laundering Defense Attorneys

Money laundering refers to the illegal practice of attempting to "clean" money that was obtained through illegal means to prevent the money being traced to the perpetrators of the crime. Money structuring is a related offense that involves breaking down large transactions into smaller transfers to get around federally mandated reporting requirements. The two offenses are similar because they have the same goals: to prevent authorities from tracking the transactions and the original income source.

The need to "launder" money often arises for those involved in large-scale criminal enterprises, such as drug trafficking, weapons trafficking, and illegal gambling operations. If you are facing charges for money laundering or money structuring, you could be facing fines of up to $500,000 or twice the amount of money that was laundered, as well as imprisonment in a federal penitentiary for up to 20 years.
