Fraud and Identity Theft Law

Fraud and Identity Theft Law

If you are under investigation for identity theft or fraud, it is important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible. If you have guidance before official charges have been filed, you can better protect your rights and fight back against the prosecution. You really do need a criminal lawyer to help you if you’ve been charged or are being investigated. At Ascent Law , we have experience in handing several cases, including white collar crime cases, embezzlement, fraud, and money laundering, among others.

These types of crimes are being investigated more and more, so it is important to be vigilant in your defense. The only way to be confident in your pursuit to avoid prison time, fines and conviction is to secure an aggressive and thorough defense attorney. We can defend against a number of identity theft charges, including (1) Financial identity theft; (2) Medical identity theft; (3) Insurance identity theft; and (4) Social Security identity theft

Criminal Defense Lawyers

Fraud and identity theft charges are often rife with detailed and meticulous paperwork and documentation. In order to defend you against these charges, it is important that your lawyer be knowledgeable about these types of cases, especially if you are facing federal charges.
We take these charges seriously and understand the impact they can have on your life — not only the direct consequences such as fines and jail time, but also the indirect consequences such as background checks for future employment opportunities and your ability to make large purchases after your case is finished, such as buying a house or a car. Get in touch with our office to learn more about the consequences of your investigation or criminal charges.

DUI Hit And Run Attorney

DUI hit and run cases are often very difficult for the prosecution to prove. The problem for the police and the prosecutors is that it is often impossible to know if the driver was under the influence of alcohol at the time of the accident.

Even if a person is intoxicated at their home several hours after an accident, there is no way of knowing when they started to drink unless there are witnesses involved. Frequently, there are no witnesses in these cases, as the other driver is dealing with the shock of an auto accident and unable to assess the condition of the other driver.

In Utah, it is a crime to leave the scene of an accident. One of the many reasons why the state legislature prohibits a driver or passenger from leaving the scene of an accident is that many accidents are caused by drunk drivers. However, many people leave the scene of an auto accident for numerous reasons.

At our firm, we hold prosecutors to their burden of proof. Our duty and loyalty is to our clients. We believe strongly that every person charged with a crime has a right to a vigorous defense. We have a strong record of results in our criminal defense practice because we aggressively defend our clients, thoroughly investigate each case, prepare meticulously for the possibility of trial and are not afraid to take a case to trial when necessary to protect our client’s rights.
