OTTAWA CRIMINAL DEFENCE LAWYER – A major fraud case is making headlines in southern Ontario, as a young Burlington woman faces eight counts of fraud charges for a cancer fundraising scam.
Fundraising and charity fraud is just one of the many types of fraud that I deal with as a white-collar crime lawyer in Ottawa. Fraud charges – whether it’s credit card fraud, tax fraud, mortgage fraud, or any other type – could result in a conviction under the Criminal Code of Canada and up to 14 years in prison.
If you are charged with fraud, it’s important to quickly find an experienced lawyer who understands fraud cases and can help you fight the charges against you. To help you in your search, I’ve put together a new article: How and Why Should I Hire a Lawyer to Fight Ontario Fraud Charges?
