Criminal Defense For Fraud Crimes In Central Ohio

Fraud crimes cover a wide array of criminal activity and can be prosecuted in state or federal courts. Fraud charges can include accusations of complex financial transactions and theft. I am attorney Steve Palmer, and I have over 25 years of experience defending clients in central Ohio against complicated white collar crimes. I founded Palmer Legal Defense in Columbus to help protect the futures of those who are facing criminal accusations.

Criminal Charges For Fraud

While fraud can cover a wide range of crimes, criminal charges for fraud will always involve some sort of accusations of deceit or false statements with the ultimate goal of theft. Fraud charges can include a single violation of trust or an elaborate and large-scale scam. Fraud crimes can include:

With today’s global and digital markets, fraud crimes are increasingly involving cyberspace and can overlap with cybercrimes. As a criminal defense attorney with extensive experience with complex and high-profile financial crimes, I have developed a network of financial consultants and experts. I have the resources to thoroughly evaluate the charges against you and conduct an independent investigation if necessary.

Do You Suspect That You Are Under Investigation?

Fraud crimes are often investigated extensively in advance. Federal investigations for white collar criminal activity, including fraud, can involve several different government agencies that work closely with the FBI, such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for securities fraud or the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for tax fraud.

If you have any suspicions that you are under investigation for fraudulent activity, you should retain legal counsel as soon as possible. Anything you say to investigators can and will be used against you. It is in your best interests to have a lawyer present for any questioning, no matter how informal, to make sure your rights are protected.
