Fraud, Theft and White Collar Crimes

New York Fraud, Theft and White Collar Crimes Defense Attorney

When investigations target you or your employer, it is important to immediately seek experienced legal advice to ensure your rights are protected. Our criminal defense attorneys handle a full range of misdemeanor and felony fraud, white collar crimes and embezzlement charges, including:

White Collar Crimes

We represent clients effectively in many different arenas where modern investigations and white collar cases play out, including the grand jury, federal and state courts, congressional hearings, regulatory enforcement proceedings and civil fraud cases. We handle hearings before the Department of Justice, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the New York State Attorney General’s Office and the New York State Tax Department.



If you are under investigation or have already been charged with conspiracy, you need a lawyer who understands the complexities of New York conspiracy law. At the Brill Legal Group, we vigorously defend clients against conspiracy charges and the underlying criminal charges. We have a track record of success in these cases, and we are ready to put our experience and reputation to work for you.


Corporate Espionage

When most people hear the word “espionage,” they think about James Bond, spies, national security issues and agents of one government selling national security information to another country. Corporate espionage can be thought of as the private business equivalent. It is essentially one company trying to gain an advantage by obtaining the business secrets of another company.


Mortgage Fraud

Legislators have closed loopholes that allowed multiple mortgages on the same property or conspiracies to artificially inflate market values to “flip” properties for a profit. But with tighter rules and scrutiny, many innocent people have become the target of a fraud probe. The Brill Legal Group has represented legitimate speculators who are buying foreclosed or short sale homes, and ordinary people who are purchasing a home not to flip it but to live there or to provide space for family.


RICO - Federal/State

A wide variety of criminal activities, such as prostitution, drug trafficking and robbery, can be involved in a RICO case. The complexity of these charges demands the attention of an attorney who understands the nature of RICO violations. At the Brill Legal Group, we have successfully defended many clients facing these charges.


Securities Fraud

The Brill Legal Group, with offices in Manhattan’s Financial District and on Long Island, has successfully defended stockbrokers, brokerage executives, fund managers and investment advisors accused of defrauding investors or breach of fiduciary duty. We have extensive experience litigating securities cases in state and federal courts nationwide, as well as in handling nonpublic securities enforcement and internal compliance matters. Our attorneys represent clients throughout New York City, as well as in Nassau and Suffolk counties.


Identity Theft

State and federal law enforcement agencies are devoting more resources to combating identity theft and credit card fraud. They have the cooperation of banks and credit card companies that lose millions upon millions each year covering fraudulent purchases. If you were caught up in the dragnet, the Brill Legal Group in Manhattan’s Financial District provides a sophisticated defense to counter the government’s case against you.


Credit Card Fraud

Credit card fraud can include the use of forged cards, the physical theft of a card, the theft of data, the use of that data to make online purchases, and the unauthorized use of information to obtain new credit. The charges associated with these offenses include credit card theft, possession of stolen credit cards, unlawful use of a credit card, forgery, and identity theft.


Prescription Drug Fraud

Both the U.S. Attorney’s office and the New York Attorney General’s office are cracking down on doctors and pharmacists, while local law enforcement goes after street dealers and users. Any such crackdown always catches innocent people or results in low-level participants being overcharged. Brill Legal Group, P.C., in New York represents anyone charged with prescription drug fraud or felony possession of a controlled substance.


Our goal is to make your options as clear to you as possible and work to simplify the process for you so you can be confident in the decisions you make and understand your options at every stage of the criminal process.
