The Penalties Associated with a Federal Fraud Conviction Are Significant

However, many people believe that white collar crimes like fraud are relatively minor issues, with minimal penalties. In truth, a federal fraud conviction can lead to a wide range of damaging consequences, both immediately and in the long-term. The potential penalties and consequences of a conviction include:

sex crime

Prison time

Individuals convicted of federal fraud charges may be sentenced to six months to 30 years in prison. In fact, many factors impact the length of a sentence, including the nature and severity of the crime as well as your criminal record.

tax crime


The federal court often imposes hefty fines on individuals convicted of fraud. These fines, coupled with court costs and restitution, can also leave you in dire financial straits for years to come.

immigration crime

Criminal record

A fraud conviction may make it difficult to obtain employment in many industries. However the financial services industry takes a specifically harsh view of fraud convictions, making it all but impossible to obtain employment in a bank, insurance company ,and stock brokerage as well.



The federal government will aggressively pursue restitution in most federal fraud cases. On the whole, depending on the amount of money involved in the case, a restitution order can leave you paying for the next upcoming years.

juvenile defense

Loss of licensure

A fraud conviction may endanger a professional license, such as a medical license ,and Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Series 6 or Series 7 licensure. Loss of mandatory licensure, in a word, ends your professional career.

To help you combat these penalties, The Carreras Law Group, P.C. explores every possible defense strategy. Ms. Carreras does not rest until she has exhausted your defense options or helped you obtain a favorable outcome.

The Opinions That Matter Most

Very pleased with Mrs. Kara she went above and beyond to help my brother-in-law. Would highly recommend her she is on top of what is needing to be done. Thank you again.

Xylia Perez

Today’s legal system, like our government, is corrupted by misguided ideologies, spineless politicians, & corporate finances which makes it hard for the little guy to get a fair shake, but Kara and her team worked tirelessly to achieve a full dismissal of the charges filed against me by a corporate giant. The personal approach, genuine concern, and unwavering dedication to ensuring that everyone is treated equally under the law is what sold me. The wheels of Justice move slow but with patience, perseverance, and Carreras Law Group you too can experience the joy of victory & vindication in our skewed legal system. I recommended Carreras Law Group 100%!!!


I have known Kara since her days in Law School and have followed her career since then. She is extremely professional and a tough litigator. She has assisted my family with various legal situations and has provided us with excellent legal counsel. If I needed someone that specialized in the field of law outside her specialty, she would steer me with recommendations of other attorneys that specialized in those fields. Every one of the attorneys she has recommended has been of the highest caliber. I am so pleased to see her starting her own law group and am certain that she and the firm will have many years of exemplary service to the DFW area.

Very professional, very honest, I really recommend them. (Original) Muy profesional muy honesta en verdad se las recomiendo 👍🏻

Ana Ramirez

Most reviews are a collection of flowery endorsements that read well but carry little weight. I don’t do flowery. I’m a 68 year old man who does not like lawyers, most doctors and 99% of all politicians. I get along better with a good dog than most people, I have never been on Facebook and have never “tweeted”. I own a flip phone that I answer only when it suits me. I have served our country as a proud member of the military police during Vietnam and I normally do not do testimonials but in this case I will make an exception. If asked for my opinion you will get the brutal truth, whether you want it or not. Ms. Carreras has proven to be an exception to the rule. She handled a relatively minor legal matter for me and drove it to successful completion in record time. She is a person of exceptional character and a consummate professional, which is a rare thing indeed in the litigation community. If you are in need of the best and someone who cares about your legal well being, you cannot employ a more competent litigator that shows wisdom well beyond her years.

George Carte

I cannot thank Ms. Carreras enough! The time, effort and personal commitment she took to resolve a family legal situation went far beyond our expectations. She not only got the charges reduced but in the end was able to have the entire case dismissed. We forever owe you a debt of gratitude !

Doreen Labit

Both my fiance and I were charged with the same bogus charges and Ms. Carreras swiftly dealt with my fiance’s case in two appearances! My lawyer on the other hand didn’t do his job and after 9 months of dragging his feet the DA talked with Ms. Carreras the week before trial was to begin and she convinced them to dismiss my case as well! If I EVER need a lawyer again I will be calling Ms. Carreras!!!!

Raymond Prater

Kara Carreras is such a great attorney. She really dug deep into my case to find all the necessary details. Kara got me off of a charge that didn’t seem possible. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. And will never use anyone else!

Sherman Allen

By far Kara Carreras is the best attorney myself or my family has dealt with. She treated us like family. She consistently kept me updated as to what was going on without me even having to call her. She went that extra mile for us and I can never thank her enough for her kindness, compassion, and thoroughness of the job she did for us. If I could give her 10 stars I would!!
