Fraud cases occur when people misrepresent themselves or information to another person or entity for financial gain. Theft cases range from an act as simple as taking a friend’s mobile phone while he or she is unaware to stealing a car or large sums of money from a store or business.
Creating specifically-tailored criminal defences for over 30 years, my firm, Michel Fontaine, Criminal Lawyer, aims to protect your civil rights and freedoms in cases of theft and fraud. I will uncover any unlawful procedures conducted by the police, and let you know what defence options you have at your disposal.
Creative, Well-Thought-Out Legal Arguments
If you have been charged with a theft or fraud crime, one of your first concerns might be the consequences. Fines, restitutions, penalties and jail time are all possible outcomes of a conviction.
No matter who you are, you are presumed innocent. It is the responsibility of the prosecution to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt, not the other way around.
I take pride in crafting strategic defences based on the specific details of your situation. My firm puts together creative, well-thought-out legal arguments, and effectively presents those arguments in your defence in front of a judge.
