Pennsylvania State and Federal Fraud Attorney

With decades of experience defending people throughout Pennsylvania against criminal fraud charges on both the state and federal level, we have the knowledge and expertise needed to effectively defend individuals and business entities against federal agencies and their seemingly endless resources.


Many forms of fraud exist, but it is typically defined as the “knowing misrepresentation of truth or concealment of a material fact with the intent to induce another to act to his or her detriment.” Often, fraud is classified according to the transaction that expedited the fraud.

Both individuals and businesses can become susceptible to fraud charges that carry substantial penalties, such as prison time, restitution, and fines. As is typically the case with all financial crimes, the penalty level and seriousness of the charges are often determined by the amount of the loss or fraud. Moreover, in addition to potentially jeopardizing your freedom, a fraud conviction can negatively impact your career in numerous ways as well.

In most cases, fraud charges are classified as federal crimes and require the services of a defense attorney with years of experience defending cases in federal courts. Unfortunately, many attorneys who are successful defending cases on a state level are unfamiliar with the complexities of the federal court system. Our diligent attorneys have years of experience and the skills needed to achieve results for our clients in both state and federal courts. We have the resources and expertise to protect your rights and interests, enabling us to minimize the likelihood or consequences of a fraud conviction.

As is the case with any federal charge, white-collar crimes and allegations of fraud carry severe penalties that are levied according to the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. If you or a loved one is currently facing serious fraud charges on the state or federal level, our experienced white-collar crime and fraud attorneys can have a huge impact on the outcome of your case.

In some cases, unsuspecting individuals or businesses in Pennsylvania are completely caught off-guard by a fraud arrest. In others, they may know they’re the target of a federal or state fraud investigation well before an arrest takes place. Regardless of your situation, our highly skilled criminal defense attorneys will tailor a formidable defense and recommend certain actions according to your unique circumstances. We defend against a wide-range of Pennsylvania and federal fraud charges, such as:
