Los Angeles Bank Fraud Crime Defense Lawyer Cyrus Tabibnia


LOS ANGELES BANK FRAUD DEFENSE LAWYERWhen someone is accused of bank fraud, it can really damage their reputation and make their friends and family question their trustworthiness. After all, they’re being accused of lying in order to benefit themselves. And if they end up being convicted, it can be really tough for them to find a job later on. Employers tend to be cautious about hiring people who have been found guilty of fraud because they worry that they might do it again.

Being investigated or charged with bank fraud is an extremely serious matter. You could face fines of up to $1,000,000 and a maximum of 30 years in prison. Cases of bank fraud are often very complicated, involving multiple criminal charges such as mail fraud, wire fraud, loan fraud, or even forgery if you falsify financial documents or checks. Because the charges are so serious, it’s crucial that you have excellent representation from a Los Angeles bank fraud defense lawyer

In simpler terms, bank fraud refers to the use of deceitful or illegal methods to obtain money, assets, or property that belongs to a bank or other financial institution. This can involve a range of fraudulent activities, such as altering checks, creating fake documents, stealing identities, or engaging in phishing scams over the internet. Ultimately, bank fraud is a serious crime that can have significant consequences for those who engage in it.

Several forms of bank fraud exist, including:

  • Wire fraud: This involves using a computer, telephone, or radio to deceive a financial institution and obtain funds through fraudulent means.
  • Loan fraud: This occurs when someone misrepresents themselves in order to receive a loan, such as providing false information on a loan application.
  • Mail fraud: This is when someone uses the mail to obtain funds that they are not entitled to, such as through a fake or deceptive investment scheme.
  • Lying on loan applications or other financial documents: This involves providing false information on loan applications or other financial documents in order to gain access to funds that are not rightfully yours.
  • Forging checks: This refers to the use of someone else’s checks or the creation of fake checks in order to illegally obtain funds.

Potential Penalties of Bank Fraud Charges:

Committing fraud is a serious crime, and this is especially true for bank fraud. In the United States, bank fraud is against federal law, meaning that investigations are conducted by federal agencies rather than California state police or investigators. In addition, if you are found guilty of bank fraud, you will be prosecuted under federal criminal law rather than state law.

The consequences for being convicted of bank fraud can be severe. If found guilty, you could be facing up to 30 years in federal prison and/or a fine of up to $1,000,000. These penalties serve as a stark reminder of the severity of bank fraud and the importance of seeking legal counsel in the event that you are accused of such a crime.

Defending Against Bank Fraud: 

Here are some common defenses for bank fraud:

  • Lack of knowledge: To commit bank fraud, you must have knowingly engaged in fraudulent activity. If you can show that you were not aware of the fraudulent activity, it can be argued that you did not commit a criminal act. However, this does not guarantee a not guilty verdict but can help reduce your sentence.
  • Lack of intent: Intent to defraud a financial institution is a key element of bank fraud. If you can demonstrate that you did not intend to defraud anyone, your charges or penalties may be reduced.
  • Lack of evidence: The prosecution must present strong evidence of the fraud to obtain a conviction. If the evidence is insufficient or lacking, it can be argued that you should be found not guilty.
  • Lack of ability: You may be physically incapable or lack access to the means to commit the fraud you are accused of. In this case, it can be argued that you could not have committed the alleged crime.

    Several years ago, I was contending with a serious legal issue. Out of the blue, I became aware that a corporation had obtained a large civil money judgment against me, in court, and on a case I was not aware of. When I became apprised of the judgment and the company's efforts to enforce the debt against me, I became angry and concerned. How would this case and judgment affect my financial future? Was there any way to fix this? I approached several other attorneys for assistance, but they all said the same thing: that because the judgment was over a year old (almost 2 years old, actually) it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove the judgment and to re-open the case. Given what other attorneys had told me about my case, I was not hopeful. But I decided to turn to and hire the Tabibnia Law Firm because I was aware of their strong reputation in both civil law matters and criminal defense cases. Mr. Tabibnia went out of his way to fight for me. To my great surprise, he convinced the court to set aside the judgment against me and to re-open the case. And months after getting the case re-opened, I was astonished when he then got the case completely dismissed! So, I went from having a large money judgment against me to getting the judgment removed and case dismissed in a matter of months. Throughout the process, I found Mr. Tabibnia to be honest, aggressive, competent and extremely fair with his fees. Most importantly, he kept me informed throughout the case. I cannot recommend the Tabibnia Law Firm highly enough.

    I am here, writing on the behalf of Mr. Cyrus Tabibnia. From the very first moment we formally introduced ourselves to one another, I felt nothing but sincerity and authenticity from this man. At that very moment I knew, that this was the person ideal to represent me and to do diligence. In which in fact he did do so. He was able to significantly get my DUI and Car Theft charges reduced from felonies to misdemeanors and with one case, completely dismissed. I was not only impressed and satisfied completely, but I was not suprised one bit with the outcome. I highly suggest this gentlemen if you are in deed seeking counsel from someone who legitimately cares, and who will go the extra mile and above and beyond for you.
