Mortgage fraud allegations are heavy document cases. When you select our law firm, we will act quickly to conduct a thorough investigation focused on mitigating any potential damages, digging into the specific details included in the mortgage application to try and uncover any evidence that can be used in your favor. Our legal team will evaluate the paper trail to show you had no reason to think the information submitted was false, and take every measure possible to differentiate an innocent mistake from criminal intent.
What if the mortgage fraud allegations can’t be dropped?
If this is the case, we will negotiate for a reduction in penalties by showing that you had minimal involvement with the criminal activities. We also try to mitigate any potential damages through illustrating actual losses versus perceived losses. When cases involve foreclosed properties, we work with the bank to find out how the bank values the property, which helps us negotiate a reduction in penalties by showing that the loss is not as substantial as perceived by the government. When you select our law firm, you can feel confident that you’re partnering with true experts in mortgage fraud defense.
