Wire Fraud Defense on Long Island
White Collar Crimes Attorney Serving Long Island
Wire fraud is a form of theft that is categorized as a
white collar crime. It involves using interstate communication devices such as telephones
or radios in a scheme to engage in illegal, fraudulent activities. Even
if goods or properties were not stolen, the intent and attempt to defraud
can be a crime in itself. Wire fraud is addressed and forbidden under
18 United States Code Section 1343.
Because wire fraud is a federal crime, you will be facing higher penalties
and a prosecution team that is well-financed and experienced. If you have
been charged with wire fraud, it is important to obtain the services of
a capable and diligent
Long Island criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Our attorney is also a former prosecutor, which gives
you an invaluable advantage inside and outside of court.
