Santa Barbara Fraud Defense Lawyer

Fraud Defense Attorney in Santa Barbara

The crime of fraud is defined as an act of intentional deception or misrepresentation of facts made by one person for personal gain or to damage another individual. It is a broad definition that covers many different types of crimes, all of which carry their own consequences and penalties. These types of crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending upon the type of fraud and the specific circumstances of the case.

This type of crime can be complex and it takes the help of a skilled Santa Barbara criminal defense lawyer to help you through the process. My name is Adam L. Pearlman and my experience as a former prosecutor allows me to give every case the best possible criminal defense it deserves. My relationship with local law enforcement officers and judges is one of mutual respect, which can also help me to seek a reduction or dismissal of charges for my clients.

Types of Fraud Charges

Fraud can come in many different shapes and forms, including:

  • Credit Card Fraud
  • False impersonation
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Internet Fraud
  • Mail Fraud
  • Asset forfeiture
  • Real estate fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Senior fraud

No matter what type you have been charged with, this kind of crime can be a very serious offense and carry heavy penalties. A person charged with fraud may face heavy fines, probation, jail, or even a prison sentence. When charged with this type of crime, it can sometimes feel as though there is no hope and that there is nothing you can do to prevent receiving the heaviest penalties. Don't let one mistake or misunderstanding possibly change your life forever. Retaining the services of an experienced lawyer can give your case the edge it needs.
