Fraud, Forgery And Money Laundering

Fraud, money laundering and forgery are all serious crimes, with potential state and federal consequences. Such cases are carefully investigated by law enforcement and often include a significant amount of evidence such as investigating paper trails.

Fraud

Most people have heard the term fraud before, but there are many types of fraud. Fraud does not involve violence, but rather deceit in order to receive some economic benefit. Business professionals and everyday people can find themselves facing fraud charges, including:

  • Bank fraud
  • Wire fraud
  • Mail fraud
  • Health care fraud
  • Mortgage fraud
  • Tax fraud

These are just some of the potential fraud charges that exist.

Money Laundering

Money laundering is when a person obtains money from an illegal source and conceals the origins of the money, often times via legitimate businesses. The purpose of money laundering is often to hide the money earned from illegal sources and avoid prosecution. Many legitimate businesses have started with funds that have been laundered. Despite the fact that the business is a legally run entity, it is not legal to use illegally obtained money for a legal purpose.

Forgery

Forgery involves creating or altering documents with the intention to deceive another party. Forgery is common with signing a document as another person, or changing the amount on a check or contract.

In Colorado it is not only a crime to engage in the act of forging something, but to also possess a document that has been forged if you have the intent of defrauding another person with the document.

Do Not Discuss Fraud, Money Laundering Or Forgery Charges With Anyone

It is imperative that if you are being investigated for any of these crimes, or if you have been arrested, that you exercise extreme discretion and only speak with a white collar crimes attorney. Why? Because your friends, family, acquaintances and even co-workers can be called as witnesses. Also, because this is a serious and private matter that needs to be handled discretely. These types of charges also include jail time, serious fines and restitution.

If convicted, these types of crimes cannot be sealed in Colorado. That means trying to move past such a serious conviction will be hard to do. Law enforcement, government agencies and even the public will have access to this information. A conviction could hurt your chances of renting a home or gaining employment.

“ Fleschlaw rocks!!! ”

I had a DUI that I thought was bogus. I got Kevin and his staff on it right away. I never lost my license and he got the case dismissed at the motions hearing. Kevin told me what he thought would happen and he delivered. – John

“ Fleschlaw really helped me ”

I had two driving under suspension tickets pending. I thought for sure I was going to Jail. Kevin was able to help me understand the DMV process, get my driving privilege back and resolve the two tickets so I didn't go to Jail and I can drive again. Amazing... – Juan

“ Kevin can try a case!!!”

Kevin handled my criminal case. The DA would not make me any offers and so we went to trial. The trial took all day but Kevin made their star witness look incredible and a liar. The jury came back fast - not guilty. Kevin was great in trial!!! - Larry

“ Delighted!!! ”

I was very, very happy with the service I received from Kevin and delighted with the results. I certainly recommend Kevin to anyone that will need his type of service. I was looking at the possibility of losing my license and not only did I keep my license, but I still have points to spare! Delighted!!! - Marc

“ Fantastic Results ”

I got charged with a DUI and I didn't think the police officer should have contacted me to begin with. I knew I needed a lawyer to make the arguments for me. I interviewed several lawyers and felt comfortable with Kevin. He had to file motions and then have a hearing on the issue. His arguments were right on and the Judge granted my requests. The case was dismissed. – Wanda

“ Fleschlaw is the real deal ”

I was on probation for a DUI and I got another one. I freaked out and called Kevin. He calmed me down and worked for over 9 months and finally got my new case reduced to a reckless driving. I hate court but Kevin and his staff really worked hard and never gave up. In the end, Fleschlaw exceeded my expectations. – Derick

“ Real Lawyer that Fights for You ”

I looked around for a lawyer for a awhile. I met with Kevin and explained my case. We went to court and he got the case dismissed. He is the best. - Jimmy

“ Very good lawyer very good results ”

I was charged with DUI. I thought my life was over. Kevin met with me and really wanted to know what happened. After hearing how I was arrested, he thought the officer should not have contacted me. He was able to get my case dismissed. – Ron

“ Great Attorney ”

He was very helpful in my criminal case. He helped me stay out of jail. He is very friendly and I liked the people in his office. – Criminal Defense Client
