Riverside Political Corruption Defense Lawyers

Defending Corruption Charges in California

If you have been associated with an investigation into political corruption of any kind, it is critical to contact an attorney who is experienced in defending politicians, elected officials, government employees, government contractors, and others accused of official misconduct.

Trust Your Case to Our Experienced Team

At Blumenthal & Moore in Riverside, California, our Riverside corruption defense attorneys have successfully represented public servants and private individuals in political corruption cases, including those involving:

  • Misappropriation of funds
  • Bribery
  • Cronyism
  • Campaign finance violation
  • Campaign fraud
  • Use of public office for private gain
  • Involvement with organized crime
  • Defrauding taxpayers
  • Real estate developer fraud
  • Conspiracy
  • Official misconduct
  • Illegal kickbacks
  • Extortion
  • Government contract fraud

Innocent Mistakes may Result in Prosecution

Rules regulating the use of public funds are extremely complex and bureaucratic. Public servants, private individuals, and business people with no ill intent can be charged with misappropriation of funds. For example, prosecution can result if:

  • Funds from a government grant for one purpose are misdirected to another purpose
  • Government work is being performed by an employee or contractor who is not authorized to do the work

Blumenthal & Moore has what it takes to take on complex cases of public corruption and win. Our legal team includes a private investigator who is a certified fraud investigation specialist and a former Riverside County Deputy District Attorney who once prosecuted white collar crimes such as political corruption.

More Options May Exist Early in the Process

If you believe you are being investigated for public corruption, do not speak with any state or federal law enforcement official without first contacting an attorney from our firm. If the issue is brought to our attention at the earliest stage, we may be able to resolve the case with no criminal indictment and arrest. However, we will aggressively defend you at every stage in the process, including a jury trial.

For a no-charge consultation about your case, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
