Money Laundering, Tax Evasion, and Healthcare Fraud

Fraud defense attorney in Fairmont, Clarksburg, Morgantown and surrounding areas of West Virginia.

Fraud can involve a wide variety of misrepresentations, including a failure to disclose a material fact, negligent statements, implied conduct, misappropriation, trade secret theft, a breach of trust or fiduciary duty, embezzlement, and other similar acts. Due to the nature of these crimes, they are frequently misclassified. For example, a case that is charged as business fraud may, in fact, be more accurately described as a contract dispute. Due to the obscure and technical nature of many contracts that were written by lawyers and not set forth in layman’s terms, we have discovered that many of our clients that have been charged with criminal fraud were unaware that their acts were in violation of any law.
