Fraud

The crime of fraud encompasses many other types of offenses. There is a direct crossover with white collar crimes as well as certain theft offenses. Fraud cases, depending on the nature of the offense, can be prosecuted in both state and federal court.

The Law Offices of Justin E. Sterling specializes in fraud matters. We handle everything from credit card fraud, to bank fraud, to major fraud litigation. Our representation also extends to all matters relating to white collar crime.

Mr. Sterling has developed a concentrated expertise in the area of high-tech crime. Los Angeles County prosecutes these matters through the District Attorney’s High-Tech Crimes Unit. These offenses carry stiff penalties, often lengthy prison sentences. Through his dealings with this specialized prosecutorial office and due to his level of experience in handling these types of matters, Mr. Sterling has been successful in obtaining results that involve no jail time for his clients. We have also been successful in obtaining diversionary pleas wherein charges have ultimately been dropped.
