What Qualifies as An Arrest?

What Qualifies as An Arrest?

Straightening Out Disputes That Have Turned Into Criminal Charges

Business fraud is one of the major categories of white collar crime. There are a number of different common types of business fraud cases, including but not limited to the following:

  • Contractor fraud: If you were hired to work on someone’s property and stopped the project due to a payment dispute or some other issue, you may be facing fraud charges.
  • Writing bad checks: A bounced check is often the result of a simple misunderstanding, but the other party may still end up getting the police to charge you with a crime.
  • Theft of services: If you are accused of not paying for someone’s services, that person may not only sue you but also have a criminal compliant filed against you.
  • Theft by deception: If you have been charged with using any sort of deception to convince others to give you their money or property, you could face serious penalties.

In many cases, the best defense to a business fraud charge is to argue that the underlying dispute is not really a criminal matter and should be dealt with in civil court. If you hire me to represent you, I will look for all available opportunities to get your charges dismissed.

I have more than 30 years of criminal law experience and am a New Jersey Supreme Court certified criminal trial attorney. To discuss what I can do to help you fight business fraud charges, call me today at 609-390-4600.
