Insurance Fraud

Newark Insurance Fraud Lawyer

Most insurance fraud cases involve suspicious circumstances surrounding the theft of, or damage to, property. In Medicaid or health insurance fraud, investigators look for a pattern of behavior by either a doctor or a patient. When inconsistencies arise in written records, eyewitness testimony, or the physical evidence itself, the State Attorney’s General office or the county prosecutor may initiate an investigation. At the law office of Joseph D. Rotella, we’re intimately familiar with how prosecutors approach insurance fraud allegations. We uncover weaknesses in their attempt to establish intent or conspiracy to commit fraud. Working with our own investigators and forensic experts, we interview eyewitnesses that investigators may ignore, evaluate any physical evidence involved, and undermine the prosecution’s versions of events by introducing facts in support of our client’s innocence.

Mr. Rotella is Certified Criminal Trial Attorney, which means that he has been designated by the New Jersey Supreme as an expert in criminal law.

Staying in Control – Avoid Incriminating Statements

Police and investigators almost never tell you all the evidence they have against you. If you’re currently being investigated or have been arrested on charges of insurance fraud, it’s essential that you contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer before saying anything to the police. Most people make the mistake of thinking they can talk their way out of being arrested. As a result, they make claims that could hurt them later at trial or prevent a line of defense they might have used. As your defense lawyer, we counsel and represent you in any dealings with the authorities to ensure you avoid making incriminating statements.

How We Challenge the Evidence Against You

Establishing fraud is not as simple as insurance agents or investigators might make it sound. In cases involving stolen or damaged cars, investigators use cell phone records, GPS tracking information, and other data to determine where a car and its owner were when it was stolen. If a car’s ignition requires a "smart key," prosecutors try and convince jurors the only way the car could have started was if the thief had the key in the first place.

As criminal defense lawyers, we’re prepared with the investigative and technological resources to challenge the prosecution’s claims. Experienced in cases involving arson, damage to property, and medical fraud, we consult handwriting analysts, materials experts, and professional fire investigators to expose mistakes and faults in the case against our client.
