Constant media attention is currently being paid to “the real estate bubble that burst.” Record foreclosure rates and our nation’s rapidly unfolding mortgage scandals have put mortgage fraud on the high priority lists of state and federal prosecutors across the country.
Mortgage Fraud and Criminal Investigations
The law office of Dan C. Guthrie Jr. represents homebuyers, real estate agents, mortgage brokers, appraisers, real estate investors, and others in mortgage fraud cases involving the following:
- Departures from standard underwriting practices
- Use of straw buyer
- House flipping
- Falsifying home mortgage application
- Inflated appraisal of home value
- Failure to disclose primary residence
Mortgage Fraud and The Blame Game
The current focus on prosecuting mortgage and bank fraud has produced intense investigations into fraudulent loans, loan origination, loan acquisitions, appraisals, the underwriting process and the frenzied sell-off of $100 million “bundles” of mortgages by banks to Wall Street. No one — not borrowers, lenders, mortgage brokers, appraisers or even investors — has proven immune from investigation and prosecution.
Dan C. Guthrie, Jr., understands that the best defense against his clients being made scapegoats by prosecutors and the media is thorough and proactive legal representation that prevents a grand jury indictment. When this is not an option, however, you can feel confident in Mr. Guthrie’s proven trial skills and in his ability to work effectively behind the scenes on your behalf. You can also trust that your best interests are the only ones he and his firm will be looking out for.
Independent and Experienced, Focused Solely On White Collar Criminal Defense
A former state and federal prosecutor himself, Dan C. Guthrie, Jr. has spent the last 30 years of his career focused on white collar criminal defense and on providing independent, effective legal counsel to clients throughout Texas and the United States. If you are under investigation for mortgage fraud or have already been indicted or charged – don’t make yourself or your company an easy scapegoat for prosecutors.
