Military Financial Fraud Attorney

Types of Defense

 Theft and fraud charges against American military personnel are common. Often, they result from one ill-advised error in judgment stemming from proximity to some of the billions of dollars worth of materials the military acquires each year. Just as often, it seems, the charges result from confusion surrounding benefit entitlements or conflicting information provided by the Defense Finance and Accounting Services. Cases that involve deliberate theft or the defrauding of a government department or agency also occur.

When a serviceman or servicewoman faces larceny or fraud charges, a wise response is to hire an experienced private practice attorney who has a strong track record in defending against the charges. Why private practice?

  • Theft and fraud charges within the military are serious. Discharge from the military and jail time are both likely outcomes.
  • Despite cutbacks, the military has deep pockets. This means that it’s not at all uncommon for the military to assign two, three or even a half-dozen prosecutors to investigate and handle a case. These prosecutors will likely have access to numerous experts and investigators to build a strong case against you.
  • To mount an effective defense without a private practice attorney, you’ll need to rely on your assigned military defense counsel, who may already be overwhelmed with other responsibilities. You may also have to hire an independent investigator who will need to be approved by the government. Prosecutors can recommend that authorities deny the use and payment of experts.

Larceny and financial fraud charges leveled by a branch of the military are too serious to fight on an uneven battlefield. Level that battlefield with the assistance of an attorney from the Denver law firm of Elkus, Sisson & Rosenstein, P.C. When you hire Elkus, Sisson & Rosenstein, P.C., you hire the assistance of an attorney who:

  • Is a Major in the U.S. Army JAG Corps Reserves
  • Has served in nearly every military justice capacity, including the Army JAG Corps
  • Has litigated some of the nation’s highest profile military cases and has represented hundreds of service members
  • Is licensed to practice in the United States Army Court of Criminal Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces.

Fighting criminal charges within the military can seem daunting and hopeless. We can help. Did your alleged crime involve the Internet? We can hire computer experts and often succeed in pressing the government to pay for their services. Have you already spoken to authorities? Many factors can affect the admissibility of provided statements. Do you feel the case against you is weak or non-existent? In many cases, we have been able to stop the legal process before it even starts.

When fighting your military larceny and fraud charges, it is important that your attorney be skilled in evaluating your case, handling pre-trial negotiations and litigating in military courts. By securing the facts, working to secure reduced or dismissed charges, and/or arguing for sentence protection and a lenient sentence at trial, your private practice military attorney can protect your full interests to ensure your best outcome.
