Assertive Legal Defense In Fraud And Embezzlement Cases in Morris County and Throughout New Jersey

Whether you are under investigation for fraud or facing fraud charges, your rights are at stake. At the law firm of James M. Porfido, we have extensive experience in the investigation of criminal fraud charges and white collar crime charges and can aggressively assert your rights.

A fraud charge requires an intensive investigation and a strategic defense. Contact our firm to begin building your fraud charge defense.

Thorough Case Investigation From An Experienced NJ Criminal Defense Attorney

Most fraud cases turn on the specific facts of the case. Our legal team will leave no stone unturned in the investigation of the evidence to build your defense. We will contact witnesses, review police records, and consult with experts to challenge the prosecution’s case. Your defense begins long before a hearing or trial. Our attorney will take every necessary step to secure a strategic and aggressive defense on your behalf.

A fraud charge usually involves theft. You may be under investigation for a fraud charge at work, an irregularity related to your business, or an internet fraud scheme. We are experienced in the complexities and technicalities of fraud cases and can effectively assert your defense by looking at the sufficiency of the state’s case and challenging the evidence.

Our fraud charge defense team has experience defending clients accused of:

  • Embezzlement
  • Credit card fraud
  • Internet fraud
  • White collar crimes
  • Identity theft
  • Forgery
  • Welfare fraud
  • Health care fraud
  • Shoplifting

Penalties associated with a fraud charge are severe. You may have to pay restitution, face significant fines, and even receive a jail sentence (see N.J.S.A. 2C:20-1, et seq.). James Porfido will explore all of your defense options, including dismissal or plea bargains to reduce the exposure of the charges and the penalties you face. We can help explain if you made a simple mistake or lacked the intent necessary for a fraud conviction.

The state must establish a knowledge or purpose to engage in criminal activity. Many times, the attendant circumstances do not demonstrate this and the elements of the crime cannot be proven. For more information about our services and experience, call us today.
