Defending Against Complex Fraud Charges

Have you been arrested for embezzlement, passing a bad check, credit card fraud, construction fraud, forgery, uttering or another fraud offense? Did you know that, effective July 1, 2018, the General Assembly raised the felony threshold from $200 or more to $500 or more for several other larceny and fraud offenses?

At MacDowell Law Group, P.C., our team of experienced trial lawyers are qualified to handle your case. Our attorneys have defended thousands of clients throughout Virginia in criminal cases. Our founding attorney, Richard MacDowell, is a former prosecutor and experienced trial lawyer with over 35 years of legal experience.

We meticulously prepare for the possibility of trial in each case. We conduct a thorough discovery of factual and legal issues in our effort to challenge the prosecution’s theory of the case. We want prosecutors in our area to know that we are ready and willing to take a case to trial. We believe strongly that our reputation for aggressive advocacy is a decided advantage to clients facing serious criminal charges.

Put A Former Prosecutor To Work For You

As a former prosecutor, Richard MacDowell understands how prosecutors tend to think. He understands what is persuasive to prosecutors, and what they do not want to hear. Each of our attorneys understands how to effectively manage complex criminal cases to provide the strong defense you deserve.

Whether you have been charged with credit card fraud or another financial crime, it is vital to get informed counsel. Our legal team is ready and able to help you with your legal concerns.
