WHAT WE DOProtecting your rights in a mortgage fraud prosecution

Mortgage fraud is a serious crime that is charged as a felony offense at the federal court level. Depending on the extent of fraud and your level of participation, you risk jail time, fines, probation, and a criminal record with consequences that can follow you for the rest of your life.

While you may feel hopeless against the might of the U.S. government, the sooner you seek legal representation, the greater the chance to minimize the consequences.

Attorney Ron Shook is an experienced criminal defense lawyer with years of experience defending people just like you. In many instances, targets of an investigation are otherwise honest people who are caught up in the wide net often cast by federal authorities.

Even if you suspect you may be under investigation for mortgage fraud, contact us immediately by calling 704-671-2390, or e-mail our Gastonia law office to arrange for a consultation.

Fraud involving subprime mortgages and related matters are typically prosecuted by federal authorities. Extensive, resource-heavy investigations occur over time. Your arrest will be swift and punishment can be severe. In today’s economic climate, financial fraud has become a high profile offense on which the federal government takes a tough stance.
