Are You Facing Allegations Of Investment Fraud?

Violations of federal regulations administered by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) are among the most complex felony offenses. In many cases, agents investigate for months to gather enough information to warrant a grand jury investigation and possible felony indictment. That means the federal prosecutor has a major head start in building their case, often without the accused even knowing they may have been breaking any laws.

Investment fraud includes any type of business-related scheme to fraudulently take money from investors. Accusations of these types of fraud are serious and can be punishable under either federal or state law. If you know or suspect that you are under investigation for investment fraud or any similar offense, it is imperative to seek the help of a highly skilled defense attorney immediately.
