TORONTO’S FINANCIAL SECURITIES FRAUD LAWYER
Fraud & White-Collar Crime Lawyers
The lawyers at Damien Frost & Associates LLP handle a wide variety of fraud and white-collar crime matters. These cases can be very complex, making the assistance and counsel of a knowledgeable defence lawyer particularly valuable. Our lawyers are committed to providing you with the support, representation and advocacy you need at every stage of your case, whether during an investigation or at trial.
Fraud is a broad area of criminal defence that encompasses a variety of crimes against individuals and businesses. If you have been charged with fraud, regardless of the specific circumstances in your case, you need a skilled defence lawyer by your side throughout the process. A conviction could lead to fines, jail time and have an impact on your personal and professional reputation.
Handling All Types of Fraud Charges
Fraud can take on many different forms. It often involves the provision of false information and a breach of trust. According to the Criminal Code of Canada, a person is guilty of fraud over $5000 or fraud under $5000, if he or she: by deceit, falsehood or other fraudulent means, whether or not it is a false pretence within the meaning of this Act, defrauds the public or any person, whether ascertained or not, of any property, money or valuable security or any service.
We represent clients alleged to have commit many types of fraud, including:
- Criminal Fraud Over $5000 or Fraud Under $5000
- Corporate Fraud and Insider Trading
- Insurance Fraud
- Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) Fraud
- Employment Benefits Fraud
- Ontario Drug Benefit Program Fraud
- Mortgage Fraud
- Real Estate Fraud
- Internet Fraud
- Securities Fraud
- Credit Card Fraud
- Charity Fraud
- Civil Fraud, including fraudulent misrepresentation, conveyance or preference
- Loan Fraud
- Employment Fraud.
In any fraud case, we work hard to minimize your legal jeopardy. In many cases, there is often a delay between the investigation stage and any laying of charges. Investigations done by private companies, insurers, the government, your employer, or any other body can be forwarded to the police, who may then lay charges. Fraud is a serious criminal offence that can result in a criminal record and up to 14 years in jail. We use our knowledge and experience to resolve cases and prevent criminal charges and civil suits.
Protecting Your Rights and Professional Standing
Mr. Frost and his associates understand the effect that these accusations can have on registered representatives and other professionals in the financial profession. Unlike many lawyers who strive for high profile cases, they seek to keep a low profile, protecting the privacy and reputation of their clients.

I was accused by my former employer of interfering and damaging their computer systems. I was charged under the Criminal Code for mischief, unauthorized access and destruction of data, which was a very scary, stressful, and upsetting experience. I thought that my world was over and all the hard work I had done in my life was coming to an end. Mr. Frost's initial consultation (which was no obligation and free of charge) helped a lot to calm my nerves and comfort me and my family in trying times. His team was very understanding, sympathetic, concerned and supporting, she always took my frantic phone calls with calmness and assurance and helped me understand the progress of my case clearly. At every step, I received sound professional advice. At the end of the case, the charges were dropped. As a result, I do not have a criminal record, my reputation is intact, and my current job is still secure. Words cannot truly express my gratitude for having such amazing lawyers. From explaining the terminology used in court, to sitting with me outside the court room when I couldn't hold back my tears, they stood by my side. Thank you for exceeding my expectations, and then some.J.S.
