Mortgage Fraud Top-Rated Legal Counsel

Miami Mortgage Fraud Attorneys

Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyers

In recent years, South Florida has become a hotbed of what is known as “mortgage fraud.” In actuality, there is no crime known as mortgage fraud. Rather, the term encompasses a series of violations of the United States Code (federal law) which include wire fraud, bank fraud, defrauding financial institutions, making false statements, and conspiracy charges related to those offenses.

Mortgage fraud takes many different forms, including:

  • Offering “cash back” incentives to buyers;
  • Falsifying official documents such as “HUD-1” forms; or
  • Paying “straw buyers” for their signature, and ultimately their credit.

At Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A., we have represented many people who have been indicted for such acts. They all faced a possible federal felony conviction and time in the custody of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. Mortgage fraud is serious, and you need the confidence and expertise of a skilled mortgage fraud attorney on your side.

Dangers of Mortgage Fraud

What makes the umbrella of “mortgage fraud” so dangerous is that there are so many levels of potential offenders. The federal law enforcement agencies investigating these crimes, often the FBI, pursue the least serious offenders as vigorously as those who are the most culpable. This type of fraud is often charged under the federal conspiracy statute. This often means that honest, hardworking people, who were unaware that they were doing anything illegal by providing a signature or receiving an incentive on a property, are held responsible by the federal government for millions of dollars of fraud that they were either entirely unaware or minimally involved.

The law involving this type of fraud is so complex that many people end up facing criminal charges for offenses that are far more serious than they could have ever imagined. If at any time you are contacted by an investigator or federal agent regarding a housing purchase or an investment you have made, it is essential that you exercise your right to remain silent and the right to an attorney. Even if you believe you have done nothing wrong, the assistance of a skilled and knowledgeable lawyer is essential.

Contact an Experienced Attorney

We have been successful in representing individuals charged with committing crimes related to mortgage fraud. Banks have lost millions of dollars because of alleged illegal activities. Unless your attorney is successful in convincing the federal prosecutor of your innocence, or of their probable inability to obtain a conviction against you, you will probably be offered an “opportunity” to plead guilty or be indicted. You need a highly experienced attorney to represent you and help you get through this.

Contact Jeffrey S. Weiner, P.A. at (305) 985-6640 for an appointment. It is extremely important to discuss your case with an experienced lawyer. There is no charge for the initial consultation.
