New Jersey Mortgage Fraud Attorney

New Jersey Mortgage Fraud Attorney

Mortgage fraud played a big part in the recent recession. Although the recession is behind us, mortgage fraud is still a big issue. Unlike your typical criminal offense which involves the police stopping a car or a call to 911 for an emergency, white collar crimes such as mortgage fraud often do not start with an arrest. In fact, your first contact may not even be with law enforcement. It could be from a private investigator, an employee of the bank or a lawyer. Even if law enforcement is your first point of contact, it likely will not be an arrest. Instead, it will be a request to answer questions.

Regardless of who wants to talk to you about mortgage fraud, you must treat these allegations seriously. Anything you do or say to anyone can be used against you. Instead of winging it and possibly damaging your case, have an experienced NJ mortgage fraud lawyer assist you.

PTI violation in New Jersey

PTI violation in New Jersey

In New Jersey, pre-trial intervention, or PTI is similar to probation. The primary difference is that with PTI, the person has not been convicted yet whereas in probation, they have. With a violation of probation, the defendant may go to prison so the hearings are more formal. That doesn’t always seem like the case with a violation of PTI. That is probably because there is less of a consequence. The case just picks up from where it left off. However, a violation of PTI in New Jersey should be aggressively fought.

Our NJ criminal defense lawyers can help you with your PTI violation hearing. We will fight to keep you on PTI because that is your best chance to avoid a criminal record. Through skillful litigation, we can prove that the violation did not occur, is too trivial to warrant a termination of your PTI or we can offer mitigating evidence to keep PTI intact.

Your Miranda rights come from a US Supreme Court case in the 1960’s. In certain circumstances, the police must advise you that: You have the right to remain silent, that anything you say may be used against you, that you have the right to an attorney and that if you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed to represent you.
