Goshen and New City Lawyers Represent Clients Charged with Government Fraud in Orange County and Rockland County and all of the Hudson Valley
Protecting defendants’ rights in New York State and federal courts since 1978
Because of the costs to taxpayers, government fraud is fiercely pursued. The investigative units of the New York and federal governments have extensive resources to pursue those accused of defrauding the government. If you are the subject of an investigation, you need lawyers who can match the prosecution’s skills, experience and determination.
Burke, Miele, Golden & Naughton, LLP has represented clients against government fraud allegations since 1978. Our attorneys and staff work together as a team, so you receive the benefit of our decades of experience and our combined insight.
What is government fraud?
Government fraud can take many forms, but it typically involves a scheme to obtain money, property, benefits or business contracts from a federal, state or local agency or a government-funded program, including:
- Military contract
- Defense procurement
- Agricultural program
- Educational loans
- Public work contract
- Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
- Social Security Disability (SSD)
- Workers’ compensation
- Unemployment benefits
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Public housing
- Corporate incentives
False Claims Act
The False Claims Act (FCA) is considered the cornerstone of government fraud enforcement; the FCA allows whistleblowers to receive a reward under the qui tam provisions.
What this means to you is that you may have defense recourse under the FCA and may even be eligible for monetary compensation for exposing corruption and fraud. Our criminal defense lawyers discuss your options under the FCA and protect your rights during all phases of the investigation and prosecution.
