Aggressive Representation for Florida's Criminally Accused

Fraud crimes are usually "white collar" offenses that involve deception or the willful misrepresentation of facts to obtain property from another person without that person's consent. South Florida is the fraud capital of the United States after consistently ranking highly for most fraud crimes in the United States.

According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), Florida ranked No. 4 in the nation in fraud in 2022 with 1,446 complaints per 100,000 residents. Miami-Dade County is one of the leading counties in Florida for Fraud accounting for over 10% of the fraud in the entire state.

Fraud affects the taxpayers in Florida either directly by losses to the victim of the fraud or indirectly through higher insurance premiums.  In 2022, fraud accounted for approximately $556.8 million in losses to the consumer. 

The penalties imposed for convictions for fraud crimes can be severe, including imprisonment, fines, and probation. In addition, under 8 USC 1101(a)(43), a conviction for fraud is an aggravated felony if the loss to the victim exceeds $10,000. Therefore, in many cases, a fraud conviction results in deportation from the United States if the perpetrator is not a citizen.
