California Fraud Attorneys

Fraud is a crime, and someone who has committed fraud may be convicted in the California state courts or the federal courts. A conviction, however, does not guarantee the return of what you lost. Even if there is a restitution order, additional steps are often required to enforce it. Recovering compensation for your damages requires a highly skilled and experienced California fraud attorney.

When you’ve been defrauded, you’ve lost more than money; you’ve lost your belief inhuman decency. When you’ve been the victim of any of one of many schemes the unscrupulous perpetrate on the innocent, the attorneys at the Abronson Law Offices can often help you recover the money you’ve lost and compensation for other damages brought about by the fraud.

Elements Required to Prove Fraud

Three elements are required to prove fraud:

  • A material false statement was made with the intent to deceive.
  • The victim relied on the statement.
  • The victim suffered damages.

Investigating Fraud

The attorneys at the Abronson Law Offices have extensive experience in proving fraud cases and getting compensatory and, in some cases, punitive damages for our clients. By conducting a thorough investigation, we will look for proof of the fraud by establishing motive and opportunity, taking witness statements, and identifying repetitive acts and concealment. We also have access to forensic accountants who can provide expert testimony when necessary.

If you’ve been a victim of any kind of fraud, the Abronson law firm offers a free consultation. Sit down with our attorneys and tell us what happened, from first contact with the defrauder to the present, and we will let you know what options are available to you.

When you’ve just lost a substantial sum to fraud, we understand that you may be concerned about the cost of hiring a lawyer. We will work with you to determine a fee arrangement that you can manage. In some cases we can represent you on a contingency fee arrangement where our fees and expenses will be paid from your recovery.
