Our firm is a leading law firm in handling cybercrime cases, having dealt with many such cases recently. As the use of the internet and various technology devices has grown, so have the opportunities for computer-based crimes, which are becoming an increasingly important focus for law enforcement.
Cybercrime encompasses a wide range of illegal activities in which a computer or network is used as a tool, target, or place of a crime. Additionally, there has been an increase in false allegations of cyberstalking, snooping, and unauthorized access to personal information. Often, online relationships that turn sour can lead to such allegations and even criminal prosecution. Due to the commerce clause of the federal constitution, many computer crimes can be prosecuted in federal court as well as state court.
Some common examples of computer crimes include identity theft, cyberstalking, email scams, phishing, hacking, malware, and denial of service attacks. If you’re facing charges related to computer crime, you need legal representation from attorneys with knowledge in both computer technology and the law. Our firm has experience in both prosecuting and defending against computer crimes in state and federal courts.
