Robert J. Callahan – Chicago Criminal Defense Lawyer Can Help
Success Story: Mortgage Fraud Case
Several years ago there was suddenly increased political pressure placed on the Federal government to obtain mortgage fraud related convictions. Our firm was retained by a gentleman who was under investigation and subsequently charged with this type of offense. Upon reviewing the evidence, we discovered several areas of weakness in the prosecution’s case.
A key part of our investigation involved closely examining the loan origination documents. It was quickly determined that the testimony of a former employee would be necessary for the prosecution to meet their burden of proof. This combined with other considerations prompted our team to pursue a strategy of demanding a jury trial for our client. This might not be a recommended approach in every case, but we felt confident that the required witness would be unavailable at the time of the trial. The prosecution’s case was significantly weakened without this particular witness. They were therefore unable to lay the appropriate legal foundation for the admission into evidence of an indispensible element of their case in chief.
After realizing their dilemma, prosecutors dropped all charges against our client. Our experience in the area of mortgage fraud and our overall defense strategy was critical to their decision. At that point we had experience with numerous similar Mortgage Fraud cases. We knew what to expect with regard to evidence and prosecutorial strategy, and that was the key to another well-earned defense victory.
