The role of a solicitor in defending those accused of fraud
02 May 2022

Fraud is one of the most commonly committed crimes in this country. If you are accused of fraud it can land you with implications which can have severe, detrimental effects on all aspects of your life. Fraudulent behaviour is defined as criminal activity which is carried out to gain financial advantage at the cost of another person, business, company or organisation. Crimes of fraud can be committed against a specific individual or they can be carried out against the government. It is dishonest behaviour and it is dealt with severely in court. Here at ABV Solicitors we have defended high-profile cases and we have specialist experience in dealing with fraud crimes. We are recognised as one of the leading defence solicitors in the country and we provide a nationwide service, supporting international clients also where necessary.

How will our fraud solicitor help you?

If you have been accused of fraud or you have been placed under arrest then you need to keep calm and remember to contact us at our office immediately. We provide police station advice and assistance 24 hours a day, so we are always here to help. It is important that we are involved in dealing with your case from the beginning to make sure that you do not implicate yourself any further. We will delegate a top fraud solicitor to deal with your case from the outset through to the conclusion. Our fraud solicitor will speak to the authorities and find out the exact allegations that have been made against you, so that we are aware of the possible charges we are dealing with. More importantly, we will speak to you to find out what has happened, whether or not you have been falsely accused or you have unwittingly committed a crime. We will deal with your case sensitively, professionally and with full discretion and it is important that we have as much information from you as possible, to help us achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

Fraud cases involve an extensive amount of paperwork. Our fraud solicitor will collate as much evidence as possible to help defend your case to the best of their ability. They will find any witnesses who can also help your case and they will make sure that all the paperwork is submitted correctly and in a timely manner to prevent any unnecessary complications or delays. Our fraud solicitor will speak to your bank and financial authorities on your behalf to make sure that the process is carried out dynamically, as we understand the detrimental impact the case may have on all aspects of your life. We will try and ease the process for you as much as we can.

Crimes involving fraud can be prosecuted very strictly; depending on the severity of the crime you may have to pay a significant fine, carry out a community based sentence or you may face imprisonment. This can have a significant impact on your future, affecting your family and friends, your job or your career and it can result in financial ruin. Speak to us at ABV Solicitors today, let us help you throughout the process and we will aim to achieve the best possible outcome for your situation.
