Fraud & Financial Crimes

As a longtime former federal and state prosecutor, Jacksonville criminal trial lawyer Charles L. Truncale concentrated on complex cases involving fraud, money laundering, and a wide variety of business and financial crimes, both in the private sector and on government contracts. Today, he applies that experience in defense of individual and corporate clients. If you need advice about the best way to handle an investigation or indictment relating to fraud charges and other white collar crimes, contact Charlie Truncale as soon as possible.

In complex financial cases, the best defense is often an early defense-ideally, one asserted before formal charges are even filed. The advice of an experienced attorney can help you respond effectively to a subpoena for documents or testimony before a grand jury, or handle less formal contacts with law enforcement agents without making a bad situation worse.

Jacksonville criminal defense attorney Charlie Truncale represents individuals, small businesses, corporations, and executives in defense of such financial crimes and fraud charges as the following:

  • Bank fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Wire fraud, mail fraud, mortgage fraud, or insurance fraud
  • Money laundering
  • Embezzlement
  • Identity theft


Charlie Truncale can also protect your interests on such charges as obstruction of justice, perjury, bribery, public corruption, or environmental crimes. The key to an effective defense in these cases is very often exploiting the opportunity to investigate the charges and evaluate the evidence against you as early as possible, and using the information proactively to reduce or eliminate the worst charges at every available occasion. Most of the hard work in a fraud defense occurs long before trial, with the objective of keeping the trial from ever taking place.

As an experienced appellate attorney, Charlie Truncale can also represent you on appeal of a fraud conviction. He is an AV Preeminent Rated* criminal defense lawyer who represents clients on fraud and financial charges throughout Florida, Alabama, and Georgia both at trial and on appeal, and he has handled many cases before the federal Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Atlanta.
