San Francisco Fraud Lawyer
Fraud is a crime in California, and can often be a federal crime depending on the circumstances of the case. It involves the use of deceit or dishonesty to deprive another person of financial assets, money, property, or rights. If someone has defrauded you in any significant way, that person should be held legally accountable for their actions. California law allows victims to recover damages for this theft if the fraud can be proven. If you – or your California business – are the victims of intentional or negligent fraud, consult at once with the experienced San Francisco fraud attorneys at the firm of Geonetta & Frucht. With fifty combined years of business law experience, we represent the interests of businesses and individuals in the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout northern California. Our San Francisco fraud attorneys advocate aggressively on behalf of our clients for the full reimbursement and compensation they need and the justice they deserve.
WE DEFEND FRAUD OUR CLIENTS
Our fraud lawyers have worked with victims of various types of fraud. Fraud laws in California prohibit a number of different fraud crimes, including but not limited to:
1. Breached contracts
2. Promissory fraud, making an agreement or promise with no intention to keep it
3. Concealment blackmail including non-disclosure
4. Embezzlement, including conversion and breach of fiduciary duty
5. Constructive blackmail and misrepresentation
There are other types of fraud not included above, including consumer fraud, securities fraud and real estate fraud. To prevail in a civil claim, a victim must prove not only that fraud took place, but that he or she (or the business) suffered harm, damage, or injury as a result of the fraudulent activity. In some cases where the fraud appears to be criminal, our San Francisco fraud attorneys may recommend involving a law enforcement agency in the investigation.
