Have You Been Accused of Fraud or Conspiracy Related to COVID-19 Relief Fund Distribution?

Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Pandemic, the Government through the CARES act provided millions of Americans financial assistance through disaster relief money, paycheck protection programs, small business administration loans, unemployment benefits. Many individuals committed fraud by taking this money inappropriately by lying on the applications and misrepresenting their financial hardship.

Some individuals committed fraud by receiving government loans by filling out fraudulent verified statements of need. These are both state and federal crimes, carrying heavy penalties depending on the amount obtained.

Many individuals will be charged with Conspiracy by assisting others in obtaining these loans from the government.

It is critical that you seek skilled legal representation as soon as possible to begin building a defense. Our attorneys can help protect your freedom and reputation, but you must act quickly.

  • Ray’s firm helped to save my life.
    When a good person does something bad they need a law firm that can help guide a client through the worst of times during the criminal process. Understanding the law is only part of the process, Ray’s firm understands the emotional impact the legal system has on a client and his/her family. Ray’s firm is very well equipped with experience to predict and manage outcomes during the criminal process. When in court I was very pleased that his peers highly respected his work, as that goes a long way when trying to build a solid defense case. Ray’s firm helped to save my life and for that I am forever grateful. 5 Star's Rating - Glen G.
  • Fantastic Lawyer and Amazing Person.
    I had never been through any legal process and Ray was incredible from the start. I was terrified to even tell him my situation and he was compassionate, kind and encouraging – always letting me know he was there for me and to help me. He has a phenomenal knowledge of the law. When I had to appear in court, he knew how to properly navigate me through the process and I was always prepared for what information was to come next. I had the best possible outcome and it’s all due to Raymond Cassar. 5 Star's Rating - Jennifer
