Essex County Fraud Lawyers

New Jersey Motor Vehicle Fraud Lawyers

Motor vehicle fraud in New Jersey can include identity theft and related offenses for attempting to obtain a driver's license, insurance fraud for attempting to collect additional money from a stolen car or accident, title fraud with regard to registering a car and odometer fraud for misrepresenting the mileage on a vehicle. While fraud involving the sale of motor vehicle can be charged as theft by deception, most of these allegations are handled in the civil context.
