Atlantic City Identity Theft Defense Lawyers

Identity theft is a very serious charge, and if the case is being handled as a federal crime, the punishments can be even more severe. At my firm, I have handled hundreds of cases for clients charged with identity theft and other white collar crimes.

I can aggressively protect your rights, including protection against the unlawful search and seizure of your computer. If I can get involved in the case early enough, it may even be possible to prevent charges from being filed in the first place.
