Federal Mortgage Fraud Defense
In common terms, mortgage fraud generally involves the misrepresentation of financial information — such as the income of a mortgage loan applicant or the value of a piece of property — in order to secure a loan. Although the two are not identical, mortgage fraud and predatory lending practices often go hand-in-hand. Mortgage fraud and other related white collar criminal charges (bank fraud, mail fraud and money laundering) are increasingly difficult to defend, largely because of the permanent electronic records and computer data that are generated by every loan application or financial transaction.
A conviction on these charges can carry penalties of up to 30 years in federal prison. In the Kansas City Metro Area, these felony criminal cases often arise in the Federal Courts of the District of Kansas and the Western District of Missouri. What is often required is an aggressive defense that includes an exhaustive review of documentation and evidence and determined advocacy by an attorney experienced in the process.
