Scottsdale is a great place to live, work, and do business. With its strong economy, the supportive business community, and high quality of life, many people and businesses are choosing to make this dynamic city their home. The local economy has been growing steadily in recent years, and the city is now considered one of Arizona’s most economically prosperous areas. This area is home to many small enterprises and major corporations focusing on healthcare, finance, and technology. Scottsdale offers ample opportunities for businesses to flourish.

However, these local businesses and professionals are subject to rigorous federal oversight, especially if they operate in a specific industry, such as healthcare or investment services. If your company is required to report to the federal government or does business with it, it is constantly monitored. Federal agencies can use data analytics software to examine your information 24/7. A single anomaly or outlier can trigger a closer examination of your company.

It is a significant issue when one of these agencies singles out your business. It indicates that someone has devoted the time and resources to conduct a closer examination of your operations. When that occurs, you must ensure that the inquiry is resolved as quickly, discreetly, and favorably as possible for yourself, your employees, and your shareholders. When you are in this type of situation, you need the services of a reputable and experienced law firm. Oberheiden P.C. is ready to help.

Bank Fraud

Bank fraud is defined by federal law as knowingly attempting to defraud a financial institution or obtaining their property through false or fraudulent pretenses. Some illegal actions include forging signatures, check alteration, check kiting, and identity theft for loans or credit. Bank fraud can result in up to a $1 million fine and 30 years of federal incarceration per offense under federal law.

Computer and Intellectual Property Crimes

The Department of Justice has allocated significant resources to combat computer and intellectual property crimes, including fraud on the Internet, identity theft, digital asset theft, and misappropriation of copyrights and trade secrets. With advanced tools, authorities can investigate and prosecute most of these crimes. Avoiding indictment or sentencing requires hiring a law firm with strategic experience in these legal and technological issues. At Oberheiden P.C., our attorneys understand the complexities of these crimes and have successfully defended clients against these allegations.

Healthcare Fraud

Healthcare fraud involves improper methods of obtaining funds from private insurance companies or federal healthcare programs. The Department of Justice uses various statutes to investigate and prosecute healthcare fraud. At Oberheiden P.C., we represent providers, executives, and shareholders in these fraud cases, and many of our lawyers have prior DOJ experience in healthcare fraud enforcement.

Our Scottsdale, Arizona, Legal Team Takes on Your FAQs

Q: Will I Look Guilty If I Hire a Lawyer?

It is a common and dangerous misconception to believe that only guilty individuals need legal counsel when targeted by federal authorities for a serious civil or criminal offense. Engaging legal counsel is expected regardless of guilt or innocence. Hiring a lawyer when facing a federal investigation is not only in your best interests but also essential in mitigating the risks of life-altering consequences. Federal investigations use plenty of resources, making it difficult for individuals to defend themselves without experienced legal help. Remember that even innocent individuals can face serious charges and punishments if they do not have a skilled legal team on their side. Seeking the advice and guidance of a knowledgeable attorney in Scottsdale can help you protect your rights and interests, helping you to achieve the best possible outcome for your case.

Q: Will You Keep My Case Out of the Public Eye?

When it comes to high-profile cases or cases involving sensitive information, clients may be concerned about the potential publicity and damage to their reputations. While no law firm can guarantee complete control over the publicizing of a case, our attorneys will work to implement appropriate confidentiality protections. Additionally, our legal team can try to keep a case off the public record for as long as possible. Our attorneys can file motions for protective orders, request the sealing of documents, or make persuasive arguments to the court about the potential harm to the client’s reputation or business. Confidentiality is important, but it should not come at the expense of legal representation. A qualified legal team can balance the need for privacy with the need to defend their client’s interests aggressively.

Q: How Can Your Law Firm Protect Me From Future Legal Liabilities?

At Oberheiden P.C., we understand that preventing legal issues from arising in the first place is often the most effective way to protect your business or organization. Our experienced attorneys and compliance professionals can assist you in developing and implementing a compliance program that is tailored to your specific needs and risks. We can identify potential areas of legal exposure, provide employee training on compliance obligations, conduct risk assessments, and establish policies and procedures to ensure ongoing compliance. By working with us to establish a comprehensive compliance program, you can minimize your risk of being targeted in a federal investigation. You can also demonstrate to regulators and other stakeholders that you are committed to ethical and lawful business practices.

Q: What Is the Potential Outcome of My Case?

The potential outcomes of a federal case are contingent upon a range of factors, including the agencies conducting the investigation, the current status of the case, and the specific allegations involved. While the possibilities for potential outcomes are numerous, they generally range from the termination of an investigation without charges to a reversal of the outcome on an appeal.
