Mortgage fraud is generally defined as schemes defined to defraud a federally insured lending institution (i.e., a bank).
Persons may be charged with serious felonies in either federal or state court and face substantial prison time, restitution and fines. The law here is complex, so if you have been charged with mortgage fraud it is essential that you seek out an attorney who is knowledgeable of real estate law in California.
The help of a good lawyer is critical in limiting the damage that a criminal or DUI case can have on your family, your life and your livelihood. Of course a good lawyer can minimize the penalties such as jail, fines and license suspension or revocation.
