Many kinds of fraud, such as insurance fraud, embezzlement or prescription drug fraud, can be prosecuted in either the state or federal courts, but we can often achieve a tactical advantage by working to keep a case that could go either way in the state system, where the options are somewhat wider in terms of diversion or sentencing alternatives. Fraud cases that involve federally insured financial institutions, federal tax evasion, Medicaid fraud or unlawful collection of federal benefits will usually be referred to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
