Tax Fraud Prosecution and Defense

Tax evasion is easy to prove, and viable defenses are limited. But a charge of tax fraud requires proving intent to defraud. Many tax crimes are instead charged as a Klein conspiracy (conspiring to interfere with the government's tax collection), because of the lower burden of proof. Prosecutions often arise out of business and marital disputes — the former business partner or spouse informs the IRS about income funneled to offshore accounts or double sets of books to hide income. If that is the case, we rigorous challenge the motives and how the government obtained the alleged evidence.

Attorney Charles B. Lembcke brings over 35 years of criminal defense strategies to your case, and formerly served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney and Department of Justice fraud prosecutor.
