Facing allegations of mortgage fraud in Florida?

The Florida mortgage and real estate industries are vast and complex systems of buying and selling private and commercial properties throughout the state. Some individuals might currently be facing allegations of mortgage fraud or real estate schemes that involve appraisals or straw buyer loans. Criminal charges of this nature are very serious, and the potential penalties under conviction can be quite severe.

Frank A. Rubino, Esq. is a criminal lawyer who is experienced in helping clients navigate the legal system when they have been accused of mortgage or real estate fraud schemes. Attorney Rubino understands that a person facing such charges can be prosecuted for intended, as well as actual losses. He is prepared to effectively challenge possible intended loss inflation in order to reduce the potential consequences his client faces.

Accusations of mortgage fraud are sometimes coupled with other allegations, such as money laundering, tax fraud or mail fraud. It is typically advisable to retain the help of a legal professional who has the knowledge and resources to build a strong defense on a client's behalf. In the midst of a struggling economy, some property investors find themselves facing fraud charges, even though their intentions for purchasing properties for later resale were legitimate, but became stalled due to a sudden drop in the market.

Even if you are aware of the fact that you have been placed under investigation for mortgage fraud in Florida, but have not been charged with a crime, a consultation with a criminal lawyer may be appropriate. His or her intervention can sometimes result in lesser charges being filed or charges that have been filed being dropped. Either way, it is prudent to discuss the details of your situation with an experienced legal professional if you suspect you are being investigated or have already been charged with mortgage fraud.
