Two of the most common types of federal white-collar criminal charges are mail fraud and wire fraud. It is not necessarily because these are large problems; mostly it is because federal prosecutors frequently fall back on these charges when any type of alleged illegal financial dealing occurs.
Combating these serious federal charges will take an experienced attorney who understands the law and knows how to weaken the government's case. Lawyer Joe Friedberg has spent more than 40 years successfully defending clients facing federal charges like mail fraud and wire fraud. His Minneapolis-based law firm, Joseph S. Friedberg Chartered, is known in Minnesota, Iowa and the Dakotas for providing attentive, aggressive representation.
No Two Mail Fraud And Wire Fraud Charges Are Alike
If prosecutors are investigating any type of financial crime and cannot find a more concrete charge, it is likely that they will pursue mail or wire fraud charges. These can include investigations regarding:
- Criminal unfair competition
- Antitrust violations that reach a criminal level
- Accepting bribes and kick-backs
Joe understands the different circumstances that cause prosecutors to use these catch-all charges, and he knows how to defend against overreaching prosecutors. A federal jury once took only three hours after a 16-week trial to return not-guilty verdicts on all 120 counts for one of Joe's clients. This is just one of many success stories.
Taking quick action is essential, however. Contact Joseph S. Friedberg Chartered online or call 651-447-6719 to schedule a free consultation. The faster Joe and his team can get to work investigating and building a case, the better the outcome will likely be.
