Theft, Dishonesty & Fraud Lawyers Melbourne

At Josh Smith Legal we have worked in many fraud cases, some involving millions of dollars and others involving just a few hundred dollars or less.

From this experience, we know that no matter how ‘big’ or ‘small’ the individual fraud case may be, it is absolutely essential to have fraud lawyers who have the experience and dedication to spend as long as it takes to work on your case and to leave no stone unturned when it comes to possible defences.

Fraud cases can involve large volumes of paperwork and material that you need to sift through to fully understand the case and can be highly complex, requiring a good eye for detail. Unfortunately, a lot of lawyers take shortcuts and don’t think outside the box. This can lead to clients receiving bad results, even sometimes being found guilty of things they could have beaten.
