Sometimes, you need a lawyer on your case before you are even charged for a crime. Recently, a woman in Dayton, Ohio hired us to handle her case after she was suspected of fraud. The woman is a property manager for an apartment complex in Dayton, and is in charge of collecting rent payments and signing up new tenants. While working as the manager at the complex, this woman was suspected of discounting her rent payments for certain tenants. Individuals accused her of providing this discounts in exchange for monetary kickbacks. The woman continued to insist that the accusations were false.
We worked with the prosecution on the case to show that our client had never been charged. We also helped the detective to see that the allegations were warrantless and that the case should never go to court. Thankfully, our hard work paid off and we were able to ensure that the client was never even formally charged with the fraud offenses. Because she was never charged, this woman was able to continue in her job as a property manager. Instead of replacing her, authorities replaced the property management company that had accused her of wrongdoing. Our client was thrilled with the results of this pre-indictment victory.
