Los Angeles Wire Fraud Defense Attorneys
WHAT IS YOUR BEST APPROACH IF YOU ARE CHARGED WITH WIRE FRAUD?
As you might guess, wire fraud is a serious charge and in my experience, usually charged at the federal level. Your first move should be to talk to a seasoned federal criminal defense attorney who is familiar with dealing with these type of cases and has traveled the path you are about to embark upon. Talking to law enforcement or anyone else about a pending investigation or prosecution is a huge mistake and could cost you and usually does. Over the course of the past 25 years I have seen many client’s hurt themselves by talking to law enforcement before consulting with an attorney. The statement they give is always used against them and typically blocks them from asserting any type of defense in the future and basically does them no good whatsoever. My advice, keep you mouth shut (you are almost never going to be able to talk your way out of the situation and are just giving authorities a free shot at making a case against you) and get to a qualified professional A.S.A.P.
When I meet with clients, my goal is to figure out what they are up against and them advise them of the best course of action. This requires the client to tell me the truth related to what happened and what their involvement is / was in the subject activity. Once I have this information, then I put my experience to work for the client and we both together break the case down and come up with a game plan that works for them. I believe that it is imperative that I am honest with the client and tell them what their chances are and what they are truly up against. Further, I believe that it is my job to arm the client with the knowledge necessary to make the right decisions for themselves and explain to them how they can best help me to help them. In my opinion when the attorney and the client are working together and each party is doing their part, this will yield the best result for the client. A free face to face consultation is necessary to make sure that you are hiring the right person for the job and so that we can have a meeting of the minds as to the best strategy related to your particular case.
