Defending Professionals in Florida Mortgage Fraud Cases • Broker Fraud
Your company wants to make loans and your commission is based on getting loans through the process. These goals may have impacted the way you counseled loan applicants on how to complete loan application paperwork.
As a mortgage broker, you are particularly vulnerable to investigations of loan practices and charges of mortgage lending fraud and conspiracy. If a loan applicant used incorrect information, if you revised the form, or if you had the borrower sign a form before all the information was completed, you may face criminal bank fraud charges.
If you relied on what the purchaser said, and then the purchaser finds themselves under investigation for loan application fraud, they may try to shift the blame to you. As an industry insider, you may become the target of a criminal investigation.
If you are found guilty of having falsified documents or advised a client to falsify documents used in obtaining a loan, you can face incarceration if convicted.
If you have been approached by bank auditors, or state or federal investigators, if you have been subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury, or if you have been charged a crime, contact the Orlando Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz, PA.
We represent all professionals against insider fraud allegations
Defense attorney Mark L. Horwitz is a criminal trial specialist board-certified by the Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy. He has more than 30 years of criminal law experience.

To obtain a conviction for fraud, authorities must prove criminal intent beyond a reasonable doubt. In our experience, investigators often wrongly attribute intent to common industry practices in the mortgage lending business or may find criminal intent based upon false allegations made against the broker.
We review financial documents and work to convince investigators that intentions were good even if the paperwork contains irregularities or brings to light sloppy loan procedures. There may also be compelling business reasons as to why a borrower has been asked to sign a document prior to the complete gathering of information. Often, conduct that is perceived as fraudulent has legal explanations.
We offer an aggressive defense that ensures that all actions legally and ethically possible are pursued to protect our clients' liberty. Contact a defense lawyer at the Law Offices of Mark L. Horwitz, PA at 407.401.7224 or call toll-free at 866.784.0023 to arrange a confidential consultation in any white collar crime or fraud case.
