For people running and owning businesses, accusations of fraud can mean the end of a reputation it has taken years to build and maintain. When accusations lead to an indictment and arrest, the damage may be irreparable. In order to protect one's image in the community, it is important to fight accusations as soon as possible. When an indictment has been issued it is even more imperative to prepare an aggressive defense quickly as the trial goes faster in these cases.
