Salt Lake City Criminal Defense Attorney
Securities Fraud Experience You Can Count On

Salt Lake City Investment And Securities Fraud Attorney

Allegations of involvement in securities fraud can ruin an otherwise promising career, so it is critical to talk with an attorney as soon as you believe you are being investigated. Quick action gives your criminal defense lawyer time to prepare a strong defense, and it may even prevent charges before they are filed. At my Salt Lake City law firm, I use my more than 20 years of experience to represent people accused of securities fraud and other white collar crimes. I defend my clients in State and Federal Courts in the Salt Lake City area and throughout Utah. Please contact my law office to schedule a free consultation. Most of the securities fraud cases I handle are resolved in plea negotiations — not at trial. In most matters, negotiations with prosecutors often lead to quick resolutions at hearings before judges. However, not every negotiation is successful. Even so, I never let my clients settle for less than they deserve. If a plea deal can’t be reached, I have what it takes to successfully take your case to trial.

Criminal securities fraud litigation is complex. Many of my clients were doing well until they reached a financial shortage. These, financial problems led to allegations of “pyramid schemes” or “Ponzi schemes”. Despite my clients’ frantic efforts and hard work, criminal charges were filed against them.

Investment and securities fraud covers an array of topics, including the following:

  • Stock fraud
  • Insider trading
  • Stock and investment fraud
  • Financial advisor fraud
  • Creating fraudulent business entities
  • Fraudulent/illegitimate business corporations
  • Non disclosure
  • Price fixing/manipulation of stock prices
