If you are under investigation for securities fraud, then contact an experienced criminal defense attorney at Sebald & Hackwelder. We represent clients throughout Erie, PA, and the surrounding areas. Securities fraud (also known as investment fraud) is a practice in which investors or stockbrokers make purchase or sale decisions on the basis of false or defective information, which may be tainted by financial motives. It is often alleged that these violations of state and federal securities laws resulted in losses for the clients.
When representing corporate executives, we help them decide whether to cooperate with an SEC civil fraud investigation. Not cooperating could mean the end of a high-paying executive job, but the information gained by the SEC will be turned over to state authorities in Pennsylvania or the Department of Justice for criminal prosecutions. An attorney can help you decide whether or not to cooperate with the investigation.
Never participate in any securities fraud investigation until you have sought out experienced representation. If you are accused of securities fraud then contact the experienced criminal defense attorneys at Sebald & Hackwelder to discuss the facts of your case. We represent clients charged with white collar crimes in both federal and state courts throughout Pennsylvania. Our offices are located in Erie, PA, and we represent clients throughout the state.

I received a speeding ticket while traveling through Erie, PA. Steve and his expert team took care of everything while I was 600 miles away in North Carolina.
