Federal Business Fraud Cases
The high-profile accounting scandals that received national media attention early in this decade have resulted in authorities more aggressively investigating business activity. Executives and others in companies of all sizes are now commonly targeted by federal government agencies.
The majority of business fraud cases are prosecuted in federal court, where federal sentencing guidelines make prison time a near-certainty for most convictions. If you are charged with any form of business fraud or have been contacted as part of an investigation in Albany, New York, or the surrounding areas, I encourage you to contact my firm now.

Successful Experience Handling Complex Federal And State Cases
I have substantial experience defending people accused of various forms of fraud and other white-collar offenses. I am well-equipped to advise you, represent you and build the best possible case for trial, if necessary to protect your interests, in cases of alleged:
- Embezzlement, larceny or other types of unjust enrichment

Serious Consequences For Business Fraud In Albany, New York
In some cases, multiple charges can stem from the same fraudulent activity. For example, mail and wire fraud is often connected to a RICO violation for enterprise corruption. Not surprisingly, a conviction for committing business fraud that links back to a criminal organization can result in severe penalties, including a sentence of up to 25 years in state prison and a fine of up to three times the amount derived from the criminal enterprise.
Making Statements Without A Qualified Lawyer’s Advice May Be The Greatest Risk
Federal investigators often build high-profile business fraud cases by approaching those involved and implying that anything other than immediate “cooperation” with the investigation will have disastrous consequences.
You could not only unintentionally give the authorities evidence against your interests but also face other serious charges for making false official statements or obstructing justice.
Any allegation or potential charge involving fraudulent business or financial activity calls for experienced and dedicated representation. Please call my office at 518-783-3800 or email me directly for an initial consultation to discuss your circumstances and the ways to protect your freedom.
