New York Fraud Defense Lawyers

New York Fraud Defense Lawyers

Mayo Bartlett is a fraud lawyer who has the experience and dedication that  you or your loved one needs on their side when facing charges of fraud.  He is a former Westchester County prosecutor who served more than 10 years in the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office in White Plains New York and he was selected as one of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers by the National Trial Lawyers.  He has also been a criminal defense attorney since 2003, and he has a thorough understanding of police procedure from years spent working with officers and detectives in White Plains and throughout Westchester County, New York City and the Hudson Valley.  He has handled thousands of criminal cases (including hundreds of fraud cases), and has successfully reduced the many felony charges to misdemeanors, or had them dismissed entirely.  He has obtained a verdict of not guilty for a variety of violent charges that would have resulted in sentences of decades, and sometimes life in prison.

Mayo Bartlett has extensive experience in New York State and Federal Courts,  and he is familiar with every aspect of handling Fraud cases from the investigative stage through trial.  Our criminal defense team works frequently with private investigators and forensic experts to provide you with the best defense.

Fraud Cases

Fraud cases are serious allegations. The punishments for these crimes can mean years in prison, as well as the loss of your assets.  If you or a loved one is facing Fraud charges, choosing an attorney to defend your case is one of the most important — if not the most important — decisions you will ever have to make. It is absolutely critical that you retain the services of an aggressive, highly experienced criminal defense attorney with a proven track record as soon as you possibly can.  Fraud cases can not only land you in jail, they have a far greater potential to harm you.  These cases uniquely attack your most important asset, your reputation.  If you lose your good reputation then people will not trust you.  This may impact your relationships and even your ability to earn a living.

Our fraud defense lawyers work as part of a criminal defense team that consists of experienced attorneys, forensic experts and private investigators with law enforcement experience.  We will carefully scrutinize all of the allegations against you and we will present evidence of your innocence to to prosecutor in an effort to avoid charges if they have not already been filed, or to get filed charges reduced or dismissed.  Mayo Bartlett is a former prosecutor who prosecuted Fraud cases while working in the Investigations Bureau of the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office. 

These cases often result from a misunderstanding about the procedures involved in receiving unemployment benefits.  These cases are often charged as Grand Larceny, Forgery and Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument and Embezzlement.  We will fully investigate your matter and we will fight to help you maintain your freedom and your reputation.

You should be aware that fraud may be considered a crime of moral turpitude for immigration purposes, and it may lead to denial of citizenship or even deportation.  Similarly, if you are charged with lying to federal authorities, you may be charged federally under 18 U.S.C. 1001, and you may be imprisoned if you are convicted.  If you are facing an investigation into possible fraudulent activity, it is essential that you hire an experienced fraud defense attorney.
