What Is Mail Fraud?

Mail fraud covers a wide variety of crimes and overlaps with other types of fraud as well. For example, people may be accused of mail fraud and credit card fraud if the fraud involved stealing credit card applications from the mail and sending them via the mail. Essentially, any act of fraud that involves the mail is mail fraud.

Many mail fraud allegations involve pyramid schemes of some type, many of which are particularly elaborate. These cases may also involve conspiracy charges, depending on the nature of the scheme and the number of people involved.

Going To Trial To Fight Mail Fraud Charges

If you have been accused of mail fraud, you must choose an attorney with experience handling these complex cases. At the Law Office of Stephen L. Richards, we have more than 30 years of experience evening the odds for people like you. Even if you have not been charged and are merely under investigation, my early intervention could result in charges not being filed at all. If charges are filed, we will put you in the best possible position to overcome them. If you have already been charged, count on me to conduct a thorough investigation, attacking all evidence against you, particularly if it was obtained in ways that defied your First Amendment rights. We know your rights and how to protect your innocence.

Ideally, we can intervene early and overcome these charges quickly. However, you can be confident knowing that you have a trial lawyer on your side. If we are unable to work with the prosecution to obtain the right outcome, we will argue your case in front of a judge and jury, as we have done many times before.
