Defending Against Wire Fraud Allegations
In the information age, there are new types of fraud and a wide variety of computer-related crimes. Prosecutors now use email, instant messages and other electronically transferred information that can be tracked in an attempt to build a case and prove you have committed fraud. At Richard H. Sindel, Inc., our defense lawyers in Missouri understand the technology involved. They will use their knowledge to attack and dispute the evidence against you and present your side of the facts.
We Defend Against All Types Of Wire Fraud
Fraud is broadly defined as an act by which a person or a company uses false information to elicit money or other assets. Wire fraud specifically is any type of fraud perpetrated electronically, such as by phone or computer. Our St. Louis criminal defense attorneys can help in all manner of fraud cases, including those involving:
- Bank fraud
- Identity theft
- Investment fraud
- Tax fraud
- Telemarketing fraud
- Health care fraud
- Securities fraud
Oftentimes, fraud is charged along with other crimes such as conspiracy or acts involving a Ponzi scheme. We know how to attack each charge to build you the best possible defense. We can attempt to get indictments dismissed for failure to state a claim or challenge the legality of a wiretap or a computer search. These are complicated cases, and it is important that you hire a law firm that has the skill to effectively pick apart a charge to give you the best possible result.

We keep up to date on the latest statutes and can argue authoritatively in front of a judge or jury. Federal charges may result in significant prison time.
