Fraud and Public Corruption

At the southwest Ohio criminal defense law firm of Michael K. Allen & Associates, we represent executives, employees, public figures, and corporations charged with fraud, corruption, and other white collar crimes.

Fraud and public corruption crimes are often charged in the federal courts following a lengthy investigation and indictment by a grand jury. State charges of embezzlement or fraud are also charged by indictment in many cases. Whether your case is eventually filed in Hamilton County or in U.S. District Court, we encourage you to contact our office as soon as you become aware that you or your company is under criminal investigation. The best opportunity to resolve or defeat serious white collar crime charges often arises before the case is formally filed, while the case is still under investigation, and while the prosecution is presenting evidence of particular offenses to the grand jury.

We represent individuals, small businesses, and major corporations in defense of such white collar crime charges as the following:

  • Mortgage fraud
  • Accounting fraud
  • Fraud in government contracting
  • Medicare or Medicaid fraud
  • Making false claims
  • Embezzlement or employee theft
  • Insurance fraud
  • Tax fraud
  • Identity theft or computer fraud
  • Bank fraud or loan fraud
  • Check forgery
  • Money laundering
  • Bribery or corruption in office
  • Mail fraud or wire fraud
  • Election fraud or campaign law violations
  • Extortion
  • Perjury, making false statements to federal investigators, or obstruction of justice

As former prosecutors, our attorneys have significant experience in all aspects of the justice system, which is a significant asset to our clients. Our firm works to achieve the best possible result in each client’s case.
