Houston Bank And Mortgage Fraud

Proactive Legal Strategies From A Former Federal Prosecutor

Federal prosecutors and law enforcement agencies accord high priority to allegations of bank and mortgage fraud. At The Reed Law Firm, PLLC, in Houston, Texas, we invest the same high level of effort and attention into defending clients facing fraud charges.

Defense lawyer Eric Reed is a former federal prosecutor with nearly two decades of experience. While serving as an assistant U.S. attorney in South Texas, Mr. Reed handled countless fraud-related cases at both the investigation and prosecution stages. He has valuable experience navigating such cases, and he draws on a wealth of insight and knowledge to provide proactive strategies for his clients.

Bank Fraud

The banking industry is heavily regulated by federal law. Violations of those regulations can lead to harsh criminal penalties.

At The Reed Law Firm, PLLC, we represent bankers, borrowers, mortgage brokers, lenders, title companies and others facing investigation or formal charges for bank fraud. Mr. Reed has extensive experience handling a broad range of bank fraud matters, including allegations of:

  • Theft, embezzlement and misuse of funds
  • Complex fraudulent schemes involving misrepresentation and overvaluations
  • Obtaining credit, funds or loans through false pretenses
  • Providing false statements to financial institutions
  • Wire transfer fraud and related charges of mail and wire fraud
  • Other forms of money transfer fraud

Such allegations are best opposed at the pre-indictment stage, before formal public charges are filed. Mr. Reed has successfully helped clients avert charges or mitigate the consequences through vigorous pre-indictment advocacy.

Mortgage Fraud

Mortgage regulations have grown more restrictive in the wake of the subprime mortgage collapse and recession. Federal investigators increasingly crack down on violations, which may range from misrepresentation or nondisclosure to complex, fraudulent mortgage schemes.

Our firm provides proactive representation for buyers, investors, mortgage brokers, bankers, title companies, appraisers, straw buyers and others facing allegations of mortgage fraud. We are sensitive to the high-stakes nature of many of these cases, and we provide discreet legal guidance with an eye toward protecting clients' privacy and reputations.
