Our Approach

Stephen promotes the idea that remedies to fraud can be found in many ways and every problem someone encounters has a solution. That solution may not always be a criminal complaint, and so a complaint has to be looked at from all sides. Through the analysis of information and applying an outside the box approach, solutions to any fraud can be found. Not every fraud is criminal and not every fraud is civil, however, all frauds have recourse. Which one is yours?
