Defrauding the Government Has Serious Consequences
Our law firm represents individuals and businesses accused of government fraud, including:
- Health care providers, including doctors, dentists, hospitals, medical suppliers and pharmacies
- Construction companies
- Defense contractors
- Engineering firms
Fraudulent government billing charges can include issues such as overbilling, bid-rigging, kickbacks, falsifying invoices, providing substandard products and charging for goods or services unrelated to the business. Parties charged with government fraud may also be charged with wire fraud, accounting fraud and conspiracy.
To convict a party of fraudulent billing, the prosecution must prove that a fraudulent claim was submitted to the government and that the party knew that the claim was fraudulent. We will strive to demonstrate that there was no fraudulent intent.
Fraudulent billing charges may be mistakenly brought against individuals who did not knowingly or intentionally commit a crime. Misinterpretation of financial records or accounting errors may lead law enforcement to believe that fraud occurred. We work to explain misunderstandings and clear our clients of the charges.
