The importance of legal representation to defend against a fraud allegation
01 Aug 2022

If you have had a fraud allegation made against you then this can be a distressing and highly complex situation to find yourself in. Fraud cases can be lengthy and even take years to reach a conclusion, and this can have a detrimental impact on all aspects of your life, including your family and social relationships, your job and career and also your home and finances. The authorities will need to investigate paper trails, look through computers and telephone records, obtain witness statements, and check through bank accounts and bank statements. Sometimes, where they suspect that illegal activity has been carried out abroad, the authorities will try to contact foreign authorities to find out more information, which will lengthen the process further. It is essential that you instruct a specialist fraud solicitor from us at ABV Solicitors to be involved from the outset for minimal damage and to help achieve a positive result where possible.
