Mortgage Fraud

Mortgage fraud is usually committed as a way to save money on interest; however, often the crime is not intentional and thus you could be under investigation for a federal offense without even realizing it.

Do not let one simple mistake ruin the rest of your life. Contact our Minneapolis mortgage fraud lawyers today to see how we can help you out of this legal nightmare.


We represent people across Minnesota who have been accused or arrested for mortgage fraud including home owners, real estate investors, banks and financial institutes, broker, construction companies, appraisers and anyone else associated with mortgage fraud. Our company has years of experience representing clients, dealing with mortgage fraud and subprime lending fraud and will be able to advise you through this confusing time.

Our firm handles mortgage fraud cases including:

  • Over reported assets
  • Failure to disclose primary or secondary residence
  • Questionable underwriting decisions
  • Foreclosure fraud
  • Real estate investment fraud
  • Misrepresenting information about renters
  • Inflating salary and earnings information
  • Fraudulent loan application information

Mortgage fraud comes with a number of serious penalties if found guilty including fines and jail time in a federal prison. Your business could be ruined and your reputation tarnished. You may face unwanted media attention during the arrest and trial and, even after you have served your sentence.


In many cases, a mortgage fraud accusation will not only impact your personal life but also your professional life if you work in real estate. This can be considered a white collar crime. This crime may be in conjunction with another white collar crime such as mail fraud (if using the postal service), wire fraud (if using a fax machine or internet) or obstruction of justice (if you attempt to destroy any records that you do not want to police to see). Do not risk your professional and personal career – speak to our qualified white collar crime attorneys about how we can help you out of the sticky legal situation.
