Types Of Fraud And Financial Crimes
If you have been accused of fraud or are facing any similar charge, you need a defense lawyer committed to analyzing all circumstances of your case. To represent you effectively, an attorney must also understand your personal challenges and goals to build an effective fraud defense.
I am Barbara Wilkanowski, a dedicated criminal defense lawyer in Flushing, Queens. Having previously served as a prosecutor for over 35 years, I am familiar with the workings of the Economic Crimes Bureau — and with defense and negotiation strategies that work for my clients.
Invaluable Experience And Insight Into Your Defense Options
You can turn to me for balanced, productive counsel at any time if you or a loved one is facing criminal charges such as:
- Workers’ compensation fraud, Social Security fraud or Medicare fraud
- Check theft, check forgery or fraudulent use of a credit card
- Theft or another property crime, including theft of services
The story behind your case is important. People whose families are dependent on a workers’ compensation check may take an unwise risk, for example. An individual with no criminal intent can get caught up in illegal activity and be charged with financial crimes. You may need counseling to deal with mental health challenges that contributed to your actions.
