San Antonio Welfare Fraud Attorney

Seasoned Representation for Your Welfare Fraud Case in San Antonio

The criminal justice system hands down harsh penalties for individuals who engage in welfare fraud. While some cases of such fraud are obvious and intentional, there are cases in which there was no intention to defraud, and yet charges are filed. Regardless of your situation, a skilled San Antonio criminal defense lawyer from The Law Office of John J. Fox is prepared to help. With nearly 20 years of experience, we have defended a number of people facing the legal threat you now are dealing with. We understand what it takes to negotiate a lesser charge or sentence or get a case dismissed. We also have an extensive record of successfully defending our clients at trial and winning, with no further damage to our clients. In this difficult time, we can take on the task of your legal advocate and to seek out the most effective defense strategy.

Considered any lie related to an individual's eligibility or need for welfare, welfare fraud can include false statements about any of the following:

  • Income
  • Marital status
  • Need for financial assistance
  • Living conditions

It is important to note that if individuals fail to give updated information regarding any of the facts, charges of welfare fraud can be filed. In addition, offering to repay any welfare assistance you received is not an adequate defense.
