Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies now assign special investigators or whole departments to combating fraud and financial crimes. It is more difficult to commit "white collar" crimes without being discovered... and easier than ever to get caught up in government investigations.

The Palumbo Law Group provides a sophisticated defense for allegations of white collar crimes in Prince George's County and Charles County, Maryland. We represent business people, doctors and professionals, and other individuals who have been targeted or charged in connection with:

  • Embezzlement and employee theft
  • Bank fraud or mortgage fraud
  • Credit card fraud or identity theft
  • Internet and computer crimes
  • Insurance fraud
  • Medicare/Medicaid fraud
  • Welfare or public assistance fraud
  • Wire fraud or mail fraud
  • Criminal conspiracy or racketeering

We have represented people wrongly accused of criminal actions for accounting mistakes, billing practices or receiving government benefits they were not entitled to. We have represented unwitting accomplices and clients caught in other compromising circumstances. It is best to contact a lawyer at the earliest juncture, before providing investigators with any statements or documents. Attempts to explain your involvement or deny criminal intent will only be used against you.

Whatever the situation, your freedom and your future may depend on the ability of your attorney to deflect the allegations and keep a fraud or theft conviction off your record. Daniel Palumbo and Michael Lovelace are experienced criminal defense attorneys who will work to avoid jail or prison, loss of professional licenses and other criminal penalties or collateral consequences. We will intervene to avoid formal charges or resolve your case as favorably as possible. If necessary, The Palumbo Law Group is prepared to defend against the allegations at trial.


The prosecution must meet the burden of proof that a crime has occurred. Our fraud and embezzlement defense attorneys are skilled at challenging the prosecution's evidence. Contact us immediately to discuss your case in a confidential consultation.
