Aggressive Theft Fraud Extortion Defense Lawyer

For questions and assistance with criminal charges involving these and other related crimes, turn to the Budris Law Group:

  • Fraud: Any situation in which money was illegally gained may be a case of fraud, a type of white collar crime. Regardless of the reason for the intentionally deceptive actions, the government takes all types of fraud very seriously. We handle all types of fraud charges, including:
    • Credit card fraud
    • Internet and computer fraud
    • Wire fraud
    • Mail fraud
  • Health care fraud: Medical professionals and individual citizens alike may be accused of health care fraud if payments from a health care insurance agency were received illegally and/or not applied to the billed medical services. These are very serious charges, and health care insurers often take action against anyone they may suspect is committing fraud.
  • Embezzlement: An employee who is accused of taking money from his or her place of business may be facing embezzlement charges. We are aggressive in our defense of employees who have been charged with embezzling funds and are seeking to minimize consequences, have charges decreased or dismissed, or have the full case dismissed.
  • Other theft-related charges:
    • Shoplifting (amounts under $50)
    • Thefts of higher value
    • Grand theft
    • Larceny
    • Robbery
    • Burglary
    • Extortion (blackmail)
    • Elder financial abuse
    • Fraudulent checks
    • Identity theft
