Pittsburgh Mortgage Fraud Defense Attorney

Allegheny County, PA, Real Estate Loan Fraud Lawyer

The lingering U.S. recession and the recent subprime mortgage crisis have contributed to a rise in cases of mortgage fraud. The U.S. attorney's office has spent a great deal of resources in investigating and prosecuting these cases. In casting a wide net, innocent people are finding themselves being prosecuted for a crime they didn’t commit. Others are feeling overwhelmed under the pressure and virtually unlimited resources of the U.S. government.
