Defences For Fraud & Theft Cases

Fraud generally occurs when a person falsifies information to either gain an advantage, or to prevent others from obtaining or receiving what is due to them. Theft charges cover actions related to taking an item without the owner’s consent.

At Leo Adler Law, we provide legal services to clients throughout Canada that aim to mitigate such charges and their severe penalties. Our goals are to make sure you receive a defence that best protects your reputation and your rights throughout the proceedings.

Helping You Set Realistic Expectations

If convicted, the consequences of these charges can permanently damage your integrity and, especially in cases of corporate theft and fraud, impact your professional standing within your industry.

Our goal is to help you avoid further damage to your life, finances and reputation. Our team will talk to you without making any personal judgments, in order to get the full scope of the situation.

We focus on the facts and use them to determine the strength of your case. Once we do so, you and we will know how best to proceed.

We Want You Involved Every Step Of The Way

Our team will review all of the evidence against you, the details of the allegations and how to best pursue the outcome that most benefits you.

We want you to understand the issues that will present a challenge in your case, and how to best approach them.
