We advise clients about the best ways to meet and resolve serious charges of fraud, employee theft or forgery. Most of the cases we handle involves money in the amounts ranging from several hundred dollars to well over $100,000. Some of our cases range well up into six and seven figures, some example of those include mortgage fraud, tax fraud, accounting fraud or breach of trust with bank deposits.

Some cases, like those involving federally insured financial institutions, fraudulent federal tax refund recovery, or improper collection of Medicaid or Social Security benefits, are likely to be referred to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for prosecution. Others may be handled by federal investigators because of an interstate connection or their size or complexity. Attorney Wallace’s experience with federal criminal defense can represent a significant advantage for our clients. I urge potential clients to get legal counsel as soon as possible. If you retain a lawyer before an indictment, you will have a chance to prevent the most serious potential charges from coming down.
