Kenneth Lay of Enron. Bernard Ebbers of WorldCom. Bernie Madoff. Charles Ponzi of the eponymous scheme. Securities fraud convictions aren’t whispers in the night; they’re screaming headlines. And forget so-called “Club Fed” prisons. Twenty-five years is still 25 years. Not to mention tens of millions of dollars in fines.
Securities fraud accusations are serious business, with cases often run by zealous prosecutors positioning themselves for elected office. And it’s not only the Ponzi schemers who are targeted. Martha Stewart served her time for insider trading, and regular investors are being prosecuted for disseminating false information about publicly traded companies over the Internet.
If you’re being investigated for securities fraud, time is NOT on your side. Do NOT speak to investigators, as anything you say will be used against you. An attorney from Liberty Lawyers can protect your rights and prevent self-incrimination.
Securities law is complex, and you will need an experienced attorney at your side. We can often prevent charges from being filed, but if the case proceeds, we will mount a vigorous defense. We may be able to prove that damages were caused by unrelated factors, or that you were unaware of the falsities.
