Maryland Federal Fraud Charges
At KaiserDillon PLLC we have extensive experience representing individuals in Maryland under investigation or charged with federal fraud crimes.
The term “Federal fraud” covers a wide variety of charges including wire fraud, credit card fraud, mail fraud, tax fraud, medical fraud, pharmaceutical fraud and bank fraud. While each allegation has its own unique elements, the common theme in each of these cases is that the government must prove that you lied or were participating in a scheme to defraud someone or take something of value from someone else. Working with an attorney who understands the law is the most important step you can take in defending an allegation of federal fraud in Maryland.
Federal fraud charges often make the news and draw national attention because they occasionally involve large amounts of money or extensive Federal Police and FBI investigations. While every case does not involve multi-agency investigations and huge sums of money, even small federal fraud charges often carry long prison sentences and should not be taken lightly.
Occasionally people assume that all fraud cases are the same and that it doesn’t matter if it is a State or Federal court case. Nothing could be farther from the truth, State and Federal court case are very different and an attorney who is comfortable and familiar with cases in state court, may not be the right attorney to handle your Maryland federal fraud case. Federal fraud charges involve different legal standards, are subject to different sentencing guidelines and you will be placed in federal prison, rather than state prison, if you are convicted of a crime or plead guilty.
