Fraud crimes frequently involve complicated facts that involve the theft of money or property. These crimes are investigated by the FBI, the IRS, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and local law enforcement.

You may become aware that you are the target of such an investigation when you or your company receives a subpoena for documents. If you receive a grand jury subpoena, a target letter or a subject letter, you should immediately contact a fraud attorney so you can produce documents in a way that does not incriminate you.

It is important to have counsel even before charges are filed. Cases of fraud are often complicated and require an understanding of finance, contracts and law. And a fraud conviction may mean anything from community service to imprisonment and steep fines.
