Fraud allegations lead to investigation of roofing company

Individuals and business owners in Florida who learn that they are being investigated might be unsure of how to proceed without jeopardizing their rights. A judgment error or being misled by another person might lead to allegations of fraud. The circumstances could even involve false accusations, and the investigation might lead to an arrest. For this reason, criminal defense counsel from the outset is crucial.

Retaining a lawyer would likely be what a roofing company owner in Cape Coral did when he became aware of an investigation that was launched into his business affairs. The Florida State Attorney's Office announced that complaints about the roofing company led to a consumer protection investigation. Reportedly, one of the claims involves the repair of hurricane damage to the roof of a house on Marco Island.

The homeowner alleges that he paid the roofing company an $8,000 deposit to repair the roof, but the job was abandoned before completion. Further allegations state that the business owner made excuses about some of the building materials being on back-order and then stopped answering or returning phone calls. The homeowner asserts that when he eventually managed to get in touch with the roofing company, the owner informed him that the money was embezzled at the firm.

Anyone in Florida who is accused of fraud or another white-collar crime is innocent in the eyes of the law until the prosecution can prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Regardless of the circumstances, even before an arrest, it is sensible to secure the services of an experienced criminal defense attorney who can start devising a strong defense strategy. The lawyer can then provide legal counsel and fight for the defendant throughout the duration of the case.
