If you have been charged with fraud, it's important to seek the advice of an experienced criminal defense lawyer as soon as possible. Cases involving fraud can have serious repercussions. A conviction could be a career-wrecker, since many employers may not consider hiring someone who committed fraud.
Sallynda Rothchild Dennison is a highly regarded Columbus lawyer who represents people throughout Ohio who have been charged with fraud crimes such as:
- Health care fraud
- Medicaid fraud
- Workers' compensation fraud
- Insurance fraud
If you are contacted by state or federal investigators about a fraud charge, you should not answer any questions or try to explain yourself without consulting an attorney first. The police are very experienced at getting people to say things that are incriminating or may damage their ability to assert possible defenses in court. Fraud charges can be hard to prove, and you should not say or do anything that will make it easier for the government to make its case against you.
Whether you are innocent or guilty of fraud charges, you need a lawyer's advice as soon as possible. Many people think that because they are innocent, they have nothing to hide from police investigators. However, an innocent person has even more to lose from talking to investigators, since innocent statements can be twisted around and used to ruin your reputation.
In cases where you are guilty, Ms. Dennison can take proactive steps that may help minimize the charges against you.
