Wire fraud accusations are not something to take lightly. A conviction could see you spending 20-30 years behind bars, not to mention the financial and social implications of a charge like this. The statute governing wire fraud cases is comprehensive, which can lead to charges that are not necessarily warranted.
If you are facing wire fraud charges, you need an attorney who understands the nuance of these cases. The role of a wire fraud lawyer in Boca Raton is to be an expert in how the Department of Justice prosecutes these cases and how they investigate and produce the evidence. We have handled numerous cases like yours and will fight for the future you deserve.
There is a two-sentence statute outlining wire fraud in Florida. The definition under the statute can apply to thousands of actions, forms, and schemes. This ambiguity means that the government uses this charge very broadly and inappropriately in many circumstances to try and make a lot of activity that would otherwise not be a crime fall within this wire fraud statute if it involves interstate wires.
Prosecutors are not on your side and will push for a conviction whenever possible. You need an experienced Boca Raton attorney who understands how the wire fraud statute can and cannot be used and how it might be applied to your case.
In all financial crime cases, including wire fraud arrests, our goal will always be to arrange for a voluntary surrender and a pre-negotiated bond. In most wire fraud cases, you receive notice that you are under investigation before the arrest. You might receive a target letter from the Department of Justice or a grand jury subpoena. Sometimes, a search warrant will be executed at your home. It would be best to contact a wire fraud attorney as soon as any of these things happen. We can start an open dialogue with the prosecutors immediately to arrange for you to appear with us for a voluntary surrender with pre-negotiated terms. This allows you to spend as little time as possible in police custody.
Voluntary surrender is not always possible. There are circumstances where someone is arrested for wire fraud without knowing it was coming or the chance to hire an attorney, but these situations are rare. Our Boca Raton wire fraud attorneys can still help after an arrest, but we always aim to avoid this when possible.
If you are the suspect of a wire fraud investigation, you must act quickly in hiring legal assistance. Involving our expert defense team right away allows us to understand the government’s theory of prosecution early. The government has sometimes had years to investigate and prepare their case. While we do not have this luxury, we will gather as much evidence as the prosecutor will give us before the discovery period opens to get a good head start on your defense. The earlier you hire an attorney, the more we can level the playing field in your case.
