Fraud And Embezzlement Crimes
At the Cohen & Hirsch, our attorneys represent people who have been accused of fraud crimes in DeKalb County and throughout the Greater Atlanta Metro area. These white collar crimes can have a serious impact on your future, so we take the charges seriously. We prepare your case for trial by building a strong and effective criminal defense that takes into account the facts of your case.
Defending Clients In Many Fraud Situations
We handle many different types of fraud, including:
- Check fraud
- Bank deposit account fraud
- False statements or fraudulent activities during a bankruptcy proceeding
- Fraudulent acts while using a computer
- Defrauding a government agency
- Healthcare fraud, including Medicare and Medicaid fraud
- Mail and wire fraud
- Mortgage fraud
- Public corruption
- Securities fraud
- Tax fraud
- Credit card fraud
Many of the cases we handle involve the alleged theft of ATM cards. In these cases, defendants face charges relating to both the theft and use of the card (financial transaction card theft and financial transaction card fraud) — even if these separate charges relate to only one event. Prosecutors often use the double charges as leverage in your case. They agree to drop on if you plead to the other. Many lawyers encourage you to take this deal. However, it is not always the best way to protect your interests.
At the Cohen & Hirsch, our lawyers have the experience necessary to achieve the best possible results in your fraud case. Settlement isn’t always the best option. In fraud cases, like other areas of criminal defense, we do not hesitate to take your case to trial if necessary.
