How to tell if you are suspected of Unemployment Fraud in New Jersey

Our New Jersey Unemployment Fraud attorneys have seen a wide range of unemployment fraud cases. They can start when you call up to make an additional claim. When the person processing your claim reviews your account, they may think that you have engaged in fraud and then flag your account. Otherwise, most unemployment fraud starts from matching up your tax returns with your unemployment file. You may get a phone call asking for information, your employer may be asked to fill out forms or you may get a notice in the mail advising you that you are under investigation. Anything you say can and will be used against you. Thus, it is important to get the help of an New Jersey unemployment fraud attorney to not only defend you, but to speak for you so that you don't create a bigger mess than what already exists.

Since most people who are on unemployment have never been on it before, there is a lot of confusion as to how and when to report income. This confusion leads to many people claiming benefits improperly by mistake. Some people are actually given wrong information by the staff at the local unemployment office. The New Jersey Department of Labor often employes a strict liablity policy in these cases. In other words, your story is not considered and you are considered guilty regardless of your excuse. Of course, this is against the law. That is where a good, New Jersey unemployment fraud attorney comes in. Our attorneys will work to help you avoid criminal charges and in some cases, keep your benefits intact.

With thirteen offices in New Jersey, our fraud defense attorneys are easy to reach no matter where you live. We can represent you in any New Jersey State or Federal Court. No case is too complex for our firm. Whether its a small credit card fraud charge or a complex, multi-million dollar securities fraud investigation, our firm can handle it.
