Fraud Defense Attorney in Hartford

Were You Accused of Fraud in Connecticut?

Fraud is considered a type of larceny, which means a form of deception is used to acquire property that belongs to a person, and said person who committed fraud did not have rights to the property that was taken. If you are facing fraud charges in the Hartford, Connecticut, area, the theft crime attorneys at Carlson & Dumeer, LLC can help. Our criminal defense lawyers have extensive experience handling various types of theft crimes including robbery, larceny, and fraud. No matter how serious your fraud charges may be, our firm can build a strong defense on your behalf and ensure you receive a fair outcome.

Don't Let Fraud Charges Hinder Your Future

If you are convicted of fraud, you may be haunted with this mistake for the rest of your life. Not only will you face jail time and high fines, but your permanent record will be blemished by this type of crime, as well. Those who apply for jobs after their conviction may be asked if they ever committed fraud, which can inhibit future job opportunities. Many employers do not want to hire an individual who has been accused, much less convicted, of fraud.

There are various types of fraud such as:

  • Credit Card Fraud
  • Tax Fraud
  • Check Forgery
  • Welfare Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Wire Fraud
  • Unemployment Fraud

Depending on the value of the property taken, you may be facing a serious offense. If you were involved in fraudulent activity that included property valued at less than $1,000, it is considered a misdemeanor. Theft of property valued at $1,000 or more may be considered a felony, and any federal fraud charge is automatically considered a felony.
