Experience Matters

Acting quickly is critical: As soon as a company or individual is subject to a federal criminal investigation, it is important to seek representation from an experienced criminal defense attorney. Doing so can increase the chances of getting a more favorable result.

Big law firms are not always the solution: Many procurement fraud defendants sometimes make the mistake of hiring huge law firms, only to realize that the defense lawyers are not familiar with the substantive areas of law. This includes SBA small business programs, pass-through contract schemes and more.

What is Wire Fraud?

The crime of wire fraud occurs when someone voluntarily and intentionally uses interstate communications, including fax, telephone or another instrument as part of a scheme to defraud the federal government (such as a telephone).  The Federal Prosecutor must prove all elements of the crime to a very high standard in order to seek penalties.

  • Sentencing guidelines can vary depending upon the facts of your particular case.
  • Small businesses and large DOD contractors often find themselves defending against the Federal Wire Fraud Statute and criminal cases involving:
  • Submitting contract claims with intent to defraud the federal government,
  • Using interstate communications to submit bids and applications
  • Violation of SBA small business programs involving false certification information.
