Need Someone to Blame?
The Government Does
When it comes to the 2008 recession and the struggling housing market, there's plenty of blame to go around.
This blame sometimes takes the form of criminal charges for mortgage fraud.
It's what's called a white-collar crime, mortgage fraud, but can mean serious consequences for the person accused, including time behind bars in prison.

About Mortgage Fraud Charges
One fraudulent housing loan application requires thorough review and careful defense, but some of our clients have been implicated in the default of 25 or more homes. Our goal in your defense against federal mortgage fraud charges is to fight as aggressively as possible while also taking action to minimize the punishment you could face.
- Is this the first time you've been in trouble with the law?
- Can you pay back some of the money fraudulently secured from the bank?
These and other factors can work in your favor when negotiating for a reduced charge or a reduced sentence.
