Experienced Financial Crime & Fraud Lawyer in Toronto
Fraud & Financial Crime Allegations
Allegations of fraud or financial crime can arise in a variety of situations. The parties involved can include complete strangers, business associates, or even family members. In this day, not surprisingly, the internet or banking system is often the means by which the police allege the offence was committed. Common charges include
- Fraud Over $5000
- Uttering Forged Documents
- Conspiracy to Commit Fraud
Richard has successfully acted for individuals charged with fraud related offences since 2001, including first time defendants, professionals, students, and youth. In certain circumstances, Richard can negotiate with the prosecutor a result that leaves no criminal record or a complete withdrawal of the charges.
Allegation of financial impropriety often involve complex legal issues. Your representative should have a firm understanding of the law of evidence (especially involving the admissibility of hearsay evidence); the legal principles that govern conspiracy; and, can identify police constitutional violations that can lead to a dismissal of the case.
