Aggressive Defense Of Mortgage Fraud Charges

Mortgage fraud is a rising concern of law enforcement officials and prosecutors. Many mortgage fraud crimes are committed by individuals who are involved in a larger criminal enterprise and, therefore, such crimes are often aggressively investigated and prosecuted. In fact, the Harris County District Attorney's Office has established a major fraud section as part of its special crimes division that focuses on mortgage fraud and other financial crimes.

If you have been accused of falsifying a mortgage application as an individual or you have been charged as part of a larger criminal enterprise that has allegedly falsified information in connection with a mortgage, it is critical that you retain a highly qualified defense attorney to protect your rights.
