As an experienced trial lawyer, Mr. Fleck can handle many types of litigation deftly, and because of his background as a white collar criminal prosecutor, he has unique insight into cases involving fraud.
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.
