Mail Fraud

Charged with Mail Fraud in New York City?

If an individual uses the United States Postal Service in order to unlawfully steal, acquire or otherwise obtain currency or other objects, he or she is committing mail fraud. This crime can be charged as a federal crime if the unlawful use of the postal service goes over state lines. When you have been charged with mail fraud as a federal crime, you need to be aware that your case will be tried in a federal court of law – these courts have different regulations and a different litigation style is necessary.

The New York City white collar criminal lawyers at the Law Offices of Daniel A. Hochheiser have successfully defended countless individuals against all types of mail fraud charges in the state.
