Computer and Internet Crime
Cybercrime is one of the fastest growing areas of the law, involving computer crime and internet crime. These crimes consist of a variety of state and federal offenses. An effective defense of computer-related charges requires a deep understanding of the technology associated with the offenses – both in terms of how the crime is committed and how the crime is investigated by law enforcement.
Our attorneys have years of experience defending computer-related offenses and are up-to-date on all federal and state developments regarding internet cybercrime.
Despite what many may think, crimes committed online are often easy to detect and trace. For this reason, a successful defense of computer crimes often requires defense counsel to force the government to provide unconventional forms of evidence in the discovery phase of litigation and to raise complex and novel suppression issues. Additionally, to aggressively defend cybercrimes, defense counsel must be well-versed in computer forensics.
Types of computer offenses we defend include:
- Online Solicitation
- Pandering Sexually Oriented Matter
- Violations of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act
- Various forms of computer fraud and identity theft
