We have successfully defended fraud allegations in federal court involving trade secret cases, mail fraud cases, health care 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, Eaman & Gabbara, 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. We have engaged in the legal research and preparation concerning the sentencing guidelines applicable in fraud cases.
