Fraud allegations can encompass a wide range of potential conduct. At the federal level, fraud allegations are generally prosecuted under wire fraud and mail fraud statutes. These laws are very broad in nature, and many individuals and businesses can unwittingly face serious scrutiny from various government agencies for alleged violations. Most people, particularly law-abiding citizens who have not had any experience with the criminal justice system, cannot comprehend the scope of the government’s power. For people under investigation by law enforcement, the only thing standing in the way of an indictment, criminal charges and a potential conviction is a defense lawyer. It is essential that your attorney has the skill and tenacity necessary to stand up to the government. Based in Dallas, TX and serving a national clientele, Dan C. Guthrie, Jr., has the depth and breadth of experience required to present a strong defense against these types of charges. In addition to having more than 30 years of experience as a defense lawyer, Mr. Guthrie is also a former state and federal prosecutor. As a result, he understands how the government views these cases and how to overcome potential obstacles.
