Atlanta Mail & Wire Fraud Attorneys
Turn to our Georgia Lawyers if You're under Investigation
Federal prosecutors bring charges of mail and wire fraud in white collar criminal cases. Under 18 U.S.C. § 1341, if the mail is used in connection with a crime, mail fraud charges can be brought. Under 18 U.S.C. § 1343, use of a communication device such as a telephone, cellphone, or computer in the commission of a crime can result in wire fraud charges. A person accused of securities fraud or antitrust violations may find themselves facing additional prison time if they allegedly used any of these mediums in the commission of the underlying offense.

Conspiracy Charges & Allegations of Wire & Mail Fraud
Federal prosecutors will often use a conspiracy charge in multi-defendant mail and wire fraud cases. The hearsay rules that normally protect a defendant from the statements of others made outside of the courtroom are more relaxed in conspiracy cases. Thus, the out-of-court statements of alleged co-conspirators may be used as evidence against a defendant. We understand these rules and the ways to avoid or minimize their reach.
Defending Our Clients
As former federal prosecutors, we realize that federal investigators sometimes act in an overzealous manner in order to obtain a conviction. As a result, these investigators do not seem to be interested in a fair or complete explanation. Our office can expose inconsistencies and present exculpatory evidence on your behalf in an attempt to prevent or resolve charges. If you've been accused of wire or mail fraud, it's extremely important to begin protecting your rights now.
