We also have experience handling high-tech identify theft and credit card fraud allegations. Our legal team works with industry-leading computer experts to trace how the illegal activity occurred. We may be able to show someone else hacked into your operating system to conduct the illegal activity without your consent. Every theft crime is fact-specific.
