For many people, the dream of owning a home in Wisconsin is something that they grow up yearning for. Being able to say “this is my home” is a sense of accomplishment that many work their lives for. The road to home ownership is one that does not happen overnight. From working and budgeting, to finding the perfect home with the perfect schools, buying a home is a process, a process that more often than not, involves a mortgage.
Going through the mortgage process makes everyone take a long look at their finances and determine if they can afford a house. Unfortunately, for some, the prestige of being able to afford a home will make them go to unprecedented lengths to intentionally omit information on their mortgage application in order to get the loan. Whether it is not admitting to defaulting on past loans or credit cards, mortgage fraud is a white collar crime not only in Adams and Sauk County, but throughout the state of Wisconsin.
At Southworth and Stamman, we have the experience and investigative resources to uncover the facts in complex mortgage fraud investigations. Whether you are the sole individual on the mortgage or you cosigned with another person and were not aware of the accused fraud, there is often a lengthy paper trail. Evidence can be hidden deep in computer files and databases. Whatever the circumstances of your case, we will aggressively work on your behalf to achieve the best possible result.
The sooner you contact one of our defense attorneys, the better chance we have of helping you. It is important to talk to a knowledgeable lawyer as soon as possible, even if charges have not been filed, but you have reason to believe they may be forthcoming.
