Fraud

Charlotte Fraud Attorney

North Carolina Fraud Defense Lawyer

Fraud can be difficult to prosecute, since prosecutors must first establish an intent on the part of the accused to defraud others, as well as their commission in certain kinds of acts involving fraud itself. As a result, prosecutors must establish additional facts beyond the mere fact someone overbilled Medicaid, turned in an inaccurate insurance claim, or wrote a series of bad checks. The difference between inadvertence and intentional wrongdoing may be slight indeed. At The Law Office of Kevin L. Barnett, we work with financial and other industry experts, forensic computer analysts, private investigators, arson investigators, and insurance professionals in challenging the evidence against our clients. We address questions of intent and the integrity of evidence collected, especially when handwriting, online computer activity, or video surveillance footage is involved.

Even if you believe the evidence against you is inconsequential or substantial, contact our criminal fraud lawyer at The Law Office of Kevin L. Barnett to discuss your case. We offer free, confidential consultations in order to assess your case and how best to fight the charges against you.

Working For A Reduction In Charges Against Our Client

Several factors can contribute to the need for pursuing a plea bargain in fraud cases. If we choose to not go to court with the case, we have extensive experience in negotiating plea bargains with prosecutors that reduce the charges or sentence against our client. While we can't guarantee a specific kind of outcome, prosecutors are often willing to consider a reduction in jail time, fines, and charges in exchange for community service or a willingness to help authorities.
