Fraud and Financial Criminal Defense
If you or your company is facing charges of fraud or any other financial criminal offense in the state or federal courts, contact the Law Offices of David Elden in Los Angeles for a free consultation about your options. With more than 35 years of experience as a criminal defense attorney, David Elden knows how to protect your interests at every stage of a fraud case, from investigation and indictment through trial.
We advise and represent clients in the defense of such individual or business fraud crimes as the following:
- Wire fraud
- Mail fraud
- Money laundering
- Tax fraud
- Insurance fraud on a homeowner’s, auto, or business policy
- Consumer fraud
- Mortgage fraud on the part of the borrower or lender
- Fraudulent real estate appraisal, HUD fraud or mortgage lending practices
- Embezzlement or employee theft
- Bankruptcy fraud
- Health care, Medicaid or prescription fraud
- Fraud in government contracting
Our firm concentrates on the defense of persons charged with such complex financial crimes as fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, and other white-collar offenses. Our clients include individuals, small businesses, and corporate officers and directors. Working with a team of investigators with law enforcement backgrounds and forensic accountants with IRS backgrounds, we can attack fraud charges on the merits of the evidence while working with the prosecution to eliminate or reduce as many charges as possible on legal, procedural or jurisdictional grounds.
The earlier we can get involved with your defense, the greater our ability to expand your options for dismissal of the charges, favorable plea agreement opportunities, or the presentation of a strong defense at trial. Whenever possible, the chance to represent you prior to a grand jury indictment will be particularly beneficial to your defense.
Conviction of any fraud crime, including criminal tax offenses can result in a term of imprisonment and heavy fines. It will very likely restrict your future employment prospects, particularly if you work in a licensed profession. Foreign nationals in the United States on a green card or work visa could face deportation and removal proceedings upon conviction as well.
Our defense will take the broader consequences of your specific situation into full account while we work to achieve the best possible resolution of your case.
