Orlando Theft Lawyer

Orlando Mortgage Loan & Real Estate Fraud Crimes

When the real estate market was good, the rising price of homes and condos in Orlando, Celebration, Oviedo, Melbourne and surrounding communities led to real estate wealth for some savvy investors. Unfortunately, some of those real estate dreams have turned into nightmares for people who got caught up in real estate investment schemes that led to criminal charges.

Was the lender in the wrong? The broker? The borrower? The police want to charge someone - and they don't always get it right.

If you have been charged with a real estate crime (such as real estate fraud, mortgage loan fraud, or flipping) in Central Florida, you need serious criminal defense. Contact The Umansky Law Firm online or call (407) 228-3838 to discuss your case.
