Legal Representation for Bank Fraud

According to federal law, bank fraud will have occurred when an individual knowingly attempts to or actually defrauds a financial institution in order to obtain money and/or property from that financial institution by false or fraudulent pretenses, representation, or promises. The consequences of a conviction of bank fraud can be severe; substantial fines and prison time—up to $1,000,000 and 30 years, depending upon the circumstances—may be imposed upon those convicted of bank fraud.

If you have been accused of committing bank fraud, a Houston bank fraud lawyer may be able to help. Under some circumstances, our team may be able to reduce the charges brought against you, if not have them dropped altogether.

Common Forms of Bank Fraud

The consequences of a bank fraud conviction can be severe. Bank fraud broadly defines a wide range of crimes in which an individual is alleged to have stolen from any financial institution, including:

  • Depositing stolen checks
  • Providing fraudulent information on loan applications
  • Presenting counterfeit financial documents to a bank
  • Falsifying loan application information

As this list in non-exhaustive, it is highly advisable that you consult with an experienced criminal lawyer as early on in the legal process as possible.
