San Bernardino & Redlands Real Estate Fraud Defense Attorney
Real estate fraud defense is more common today than ever before. Law enforcement departments at the local, county, state and federal levels are prioritizing investigations into real estate and mortgage fraud as part of the government’s “response” to the recent mortgage crisis. Our San Bernardino real estate fraud attorneys can help you today if you have been accused of a crime involving private or commercial property.
Real estate agents, mortgage brokers, escrow agents, real estate lawyers and other real estate professionals can easily get swept up in the net as investigations broaden and law enforcement departments become more sophisticated in their tactics.
Accusations of real estate or construction fraud can have serious implications, even if you are never convicted — and sometimes, even if you are never charged with a crime. We have known real estate professionals in San Bernardino, Riverside and throughout the Inland Empire whose professional reputations and businesses have been ruined by unfounded accusations of real estate fraud.
First Steps in Real Estate Fraud Investigations
To protect your professional reputation, as well as your criminal record, contact our Redlands criminal defense lawyers immediately if you suspect you are the target of a real estate fraud investigation. You are entitled to legal representation at any stage of a criminal investigation — or an internal investigation conducted by your employer.
In real estate or mortgage fraud investigations in San Bernardino or Riverside Counties, it’s a wise idea for employees or assistants to get legal counsel if their employer or supervisor is under investigation. In some investigations into criminal real estate fraud, employees who unknowingly signed or approved fraudulent documents such as loan documents may be held accountable.
