Theft and Financial Crimes

Both the federal government and the state government make a high priority of prosecuting theft and other financial crimes. Theft charges can include stealing from businesses, trusted associates or others. Financial crimes include bank fraud, mail fraud and all types of schemes. The federal government has particular emphasis these days on alleged fraud relating to aid provided during the recent pandemic, including PPP loans and other economic development loans. The consequences for convictions of theft and financial crimes can be quite significant, including periods of incarceration. Paul Brickfield is former federal prosecutor who handled financial frauds. As a criminal defense lawyer for the past 30 years, he has represented individuals subject to investigation and prosecution for theft and financial frauds.
