Bank fraud – the use of potentially illegal means to possess money, property, or assets owned or controlled by another, typically through falsely posing or representing oneself as a legitimate financial institution – is one of the most serious white collar crimes in both Massachusetts and the United States. The maximum legal penalty for bank fraud is 30 years in federal prison, and the typical social penalty is the complete destruction of your reputation as an individual or business. If you have been accused of this criminal act, you need to be fast to defend yourself, and you need someone you can trust to do it.

Bank fraud accusations and trials will often not rely heavily on physical evidence but more on what you were allegedly trying to accomplish. Due to our inability to always know what another person is thinking or what truly motivated them to act, the prosecution will have to persuade the jury that you had planned out a scheme and followed through with it intentionally. This opens the door for Attorney Bailey to counter their claims with arguments of his own, aimed at convincing the jury that the prosecution relies on nothing more than speculation. With more than three decades of criminal law experience under his belt, it is unlikely that any prosecutor that challenges him will stand a chance.
