White Collar Defense / Fraud Cases


Mr. Eaman and Ms. Gabbara have worked together defending  fraud  allegations in federal court in a trade secret case, a mail fraud case,   and two health care fraud cases.  Mr.  Eaman has also represented  clients in health care fraud cases and other fraud  cases.

It takes a special expertise to defend clients in these   types of “White Collar” criminal cases, as the documents that need to be   reviewed often are in the thousands of pages, and computer drives need  to be  forensically investigated.  Jurors are  also often unforgiving  of individuals involved in a fraudulent business, and it  is difficult  to set your client apart from the others who have worked at a  business  place that may have been engaged in fraud.  Sometimes, where the fraud  is not apparent,  or is isolated and limited to one or two individuals,  Frank D. Eaman, PLLC, has  been successful in avoiding criminal charges  altogether, or securing a  resolution where the business, itself, takes  responsibility, thereby avoiding any  individual felony record and  avoiding any jail or prison time.  If there is a conviction, the  determination  of the sentencing guidelines that control the clients’  sentence is a difficult  task requiring knowledge and expertise about  the sentencing guidelines.  Both Mr. Eaman and Ms. Gabbara have engaged   in the legal research and preparation concerning the sentencing  guidelines  applicable in fraud cases.
