The fraud defense lawyers at Mullen, Schlough & Associates excel in representing clients in a wide variety of fraud cases including crimes such as credit card fraud, insurance fraud, loan fraud, identity fraud, internet fraud, check fraud, and forgery fraud, among many others. Fraud is a serious charge that can have severe consequences. Although all of these crimes have a fraudulent component, that does not necessarily mean that everyone involved was aware of the fraud. The Mullen Law Group’s fraud lawyers have extensive experience defending clients from fraud allegations and are committed to providing an aggressive defense on the clients behalf. In fraud cases it is essential to have a dedicated attorney that engages early and strives to get the case either dismissed or settled out of court. Because fraud cases usually involve mere monetary losses and the alleged victim is often only pursuing the recovery of his or her money, a skilled fraud attorney or criminal defense lawyer will be able to help get the case resolved. Have Wisconsin’s premier fraud attorneys prove their success in settling cases out of court and preventing charges from ever being filed.

If charges of a fraud related crime have been filed or are in process, an experienced fraud defense team will be able to improve the outcome, whether the amount in question is large or small. Remember, it is easier to prevent a fraud charge from being filed than it is to receive a not guilty verdict in court once it has already been charged.

In some situations, it may be difficult for the prosecution to pursue or prove a fraud case. This is due to the fact that the intent of the defendant is a key part of the charges. To be convicted of committing some type of fraud, the prosecution must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant intentionally made the attempt to or actually defrauded others. If a fraud case goes to court, there is often no recovery of losses for the plaintiff because a judgment is ordered. The judgment can often include jail time, making recovery of losses very difficult. Settling out of court is the most beneficial option for both parties; the plaintiff has a better chance of recovering losses and the accused can avoid serving time in jail or prison.

Although the evidence may seem substantial, there are many options an attorney can use to challenge the fraud charges. It is important to act quickly to involve a legal professional who can properly assert rights and act as a knowledgeable voice inside and outside of the courtroom. Our criminal defense lawyers have achieved amazing results in fraud cases during the pre-file stage as well as in the courtroom. Our attorneys have the expertise to have fraud cases completely dismissed, or pursue a lower sentence for the client.
