Representation For Theft And Fraud Cases
Fraud cases occur when people misrepresent themselves or information to another person or entity for financial gain. Theft cases range from an act as simple as taking a friend’s mobile phone while he or she is unaware to stealing a car or large sums of money from a store or business.
Creating specifically-tailored criminal defences for over 25 years, my firm, Michel Fontaine, Criminal Lawyer, aims to protect your civil rights and freedoms in cases of theft and fraud. I will uncover any unlawful procedures conducted by the police, and let you know what defence options you have at your disposal.
Creative, Well-Thought-Out Legal Arguments
If you have been charged with a theft or fraud crime, one of your first concerns might be the consequences. Fines, restitutions, penalties and jail time are all possible outcomes of a conviction.
No matter who you are, you are presumed innocent. It is the responsibility of the prosecution to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt, not the other way around.
I take pride in crafting strategic defences based on the specific details of your situation. My firm puts together creative, well-thought-out legal arguments, and effectively presents those arguments in your defence in front of a judge.
