Fort Bend County Fraud Lawyer
Aggressive Defense Against Fraud Charges in The Greater Houston Area
Allegations of fraud are a serious matter and can lead to very stringent penalties of large fines, along with extensive jail time. Many people are familiar with identity fraud, but there are countless others as well. You can also be charged with fraud that deals with banking, wiring, credit card, mailing, illegal use of the internet, insurance, mortgage, and even bankruptcy fraud.
Being accused of any one of these types of fraud will not only have harsh present consequences, but can have long term effects on your future, negatively impacting the reputation not only of yourself but your loved ones. However, fraud charges can only be followed through if it is proven beyond a doubt that you recklessly disregarded the consequences of your actions, and absolutely intended to commit fraud. This might seem like an insurmountable task, but not when it comes to our dedicated team at The Sims Law Firm, PLLC. Our Fort Bend County fraud attorney is here to help you save your reputation and freedom before it is too late.
What Constitutes Fraud in Texas?
In Texas, a person or entity commits fraud when they deliberately use deceit, provide false information, or make misleading statements for the purpose of obtaining money, goods, or services. Texas laws are very specific about fraud, listing 22 distinct forms of the crime. In most cases, these offenses are charged as misdemeanors, state jail felonies, or third-degree felonies.
Some of the most common types of fraud include:
- Credit card fraud

- Hindering secured creditors
- Fraudulent transfer of a motor vehicle
- Issuance of a bad check
- Commercial bribery
- False statements to obtain property
- Trademark counterfeiting
- Criminal stimulation
- Theft or receiving of a stolen check
