Defending clients against federal and state mortgage-fraud charges

In the wake of the financial-market and housing-market crash, federal and state governments aggressively stepped up their prosecution of mortgage-fraud charges. These investigations have ensnared lenders, brokers, sellers, buyers, contractors, and other professionals across the real-estate field.

Our white-collar criminal-defense lawyers of The Chandra Law Firm LLC in Cleveland have successfully defended clients throughout Ohio facing serious state and federal mortgage-fraud charges:

  • We obtained complete dismissal of all criminal-mortgage-fraud charges against our two individual clients who, along with their companies, had been indicted along with 38 others, when most of the other defendants were convicted.
  • We obtained a complete defense verdict in a civil mortgage-fraud case against our mortgage-broker client, following a jury trial.

We can provide diligent, steadfast representation to defend you against these complex charges.


There is no substitute for experience

As the former law director for the city of Cleveland, founding and managing partner Subodh Chandra has extensive experience investigating and seeking to address the predatory-lending phenomenon that ruined low-income homebuyers. In many other cases, however, innocent people were swept up in mortgage-fraud schemes by unscrupulous lenders.

And as a former federal prosecutor for the U.S. Department of Justice, Chandra was commended by former FBI Director Robert Mueller for "demonstrated excellence" in his federal prosecutorial work.

Our boutique law firm's advantage lies in our creativity and willingness to explore every possible avenue available to protect our clients' freedoms and reputations. In these cases often involving tens of thousands of pages of complex financial documents, we are able to provide exhaustive analysis that illuminates the best course of action.
