A Career Devoted To Fighting Fraud

An attorney since 1997, Fleck began his career at the U.S Customs Service fighting import fraud.

He moved on to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office’s White Collar Crimes Division, where as a deputy DA he prosecuted felonies and complex financial crimes, including business, real estate, investment, insurance, and loan fraud as well as identity theft, forgery and money laundering for 10 years.

In private practice since 2009, Fleck has represented people and companies in civil lawsuits to recover money and property after their business partners lied to and cheated them.


Fraud Lawsuits

In its simplest form, fraud is defined as a lie.

The lie might be verbal or in writing. It might be a forged signature or document. It might also be an omission of critical information. Each of these examples can cause the target to make different decisions than they would if they had known the truth. That is fraud.

The good news is this:  fraud lawsuits can be easy to win. Once we prove to a jury that the perpetrator lied, they will no longer believe his excuses and explanations.

The bad news is this: it can be very hard to recover stolen funds from a perpetrator, because fraudsters typically spend the stolen money as quickly as it comes in.

However, most fraud cases also involve other parties who negligently enabled the perpetrator to commit the fraud. 

Because con artists usually cannot accomplish their schemes alone, often they use their skills of persuasion to convince others to violate their duties to you.

These enablers may include attorneys, escrow officers, real estate agents, investment brokers, bankers, valuation experts, or accountants.

In many cases, we pursue legal action not only against the con artist, but also these enablers to obtain a just outcome for the victim of fraud.

Business, Real Estate and Investment Fraud

The business disputes we litigate typically involve a party who never intended to meet their obligations from the beginning.

He really cared, and that was reflected in his work which achieved very good results. I have known David for years, and I know he has high integrity as well.
