San Francisco Fraud & Identity Theft Lawyer

The crime of fraud is most often referred to as a "white collar crime." Under California law, fraud encompasses a number of different offenses in which a party intentionally creates an unfair benefit for him or herself, or harms another person by causing that person a loss.

Fraud cases are complex and document-intensive. It is important to retain the services of an experienced San Francisco fraud lawyer who can minimize the impact of these charges on your personal and professional life.

Examples of fraud include:

  • Forgery and identity theft — Including Internet fraud, forging or counterfeiting an ID or driver's license, and falsely impersonating someone
  • Insurance fraud — Providing false information regarding an insurance application or policy to obtain payments to which you are not entitled
  • Mortgage fraud — Often arise from an alleged misstatement or false statement in a real estate document, including a misstatement as to who an employer is or how much income was generated from a real estate sale
  • Bank fraud — The use of fraudulent means to obtain money, assets or other property owned or held by a financial institution
  • Identity theft — Knowingly using the personal identifying information, financial identifying information or financial device of another person without permission or lawful authority to obtain cash, credit, property, services or any other thing of value

Fraud can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor depending on the defendant's criminal history and the specific facts of the case. This sliding scale allows for a wide range of penalties and the combination of fines and jail time.

A fraud conviction can lead to the revocation and denial of a number of state professional licenses. It could also subject both legal and undocumented immigrants to detention and deportation.

We are committed to doing whatever possible to work toward an outright dismissal or reach the best possible outcome through negotiations with prosecutors. If a fair agreement cannot be reached, Angeli Fitch is a trial-tested attorney who will protect your rights in court.
