What are the Penalties For Insurance Fraud in New Jersey?
Insurance fraud is a serious crime, carrying a sentence as lengthy as 10 years in prison. Additional penalties can also include fines, restitution, and probation. New Jersey is serious about insurance fraud prosecution and established the Office of Insurance Fraud Prosecutor to oversee insurance fraud prevention and prosecution throughout New Jersey. This office operates a 24-hour insurance fraud tip line and offers a reward of up to $25,000 to anyone who provides information that leads to an insurance fraud arrest.
Is Insurance Fraud a Federal Crime?
Most insurance fraud cases are generally handled at the state level. As mentioned above, the OIFP works with state and federal law enforcement agencies to investigate and prosecute insurance fraud cases. However, insurance fraud can be prosecuted as a federal offense in New Jersey if the crime involves federal programs, agencies, or crosses state lines. An example of this can include if the insurance fraud scheme applies to a federally-funded insurance program such as Medicare or Medicaid, or if it involves a federal agency such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), it could be prosecuted at the federal level. If you are facing federal charges for insurance fraud in New Jersey, it is necessary to seek the legal guidance of a New Jersey federal criminal defense lawyer who can help you navigate the complex legal system and work towards the best possible outcome for your case.

"Aside from my wife, Jack may very well be the only person in my life that I truly trust"Jack Arseneault might very well be one of the best attorneys in the USA, however, he is by far a much better person than he is an attorney. He has been my attorney for over 25 years and not only has his counseling been amazing, but his care for the well-being of myself and my family has gone and continues to go above what anyone would expect from their attorney. Jack ALWAYS put my needs and my family's needs before his own and advised based on what was best for us as opposed to what would make him the most money. Aside from my wife, Jack may very well be the only person in my life that I truly trust and I am honored and privileged to not only call him my attorney, but more importantly one of my best friends.- Sam
"Big heart and empathetic spirit"
Jack Arseneault was a beacon of hope to my family and I at a time when my options appeared limited back in 2011. I pretty much would of been behind bars without a doubt if it wasn’t for him. Not only was he able to defend and clear me of all charges, he made sure my record was cleared. His big heart and empathetic spirit offered us emotional support as well. He went over and beyond for us, he did things he didn’t have to do. He would always make time for me and till this day, he’s just a phone call away. I thank God for bringing him into our lives and I am ETERNALLY grateful for his service. I would recommend him without any hesitation.- Dominique

"Jack is not only a great lawyer, but a great man"I hired Jack to defend me in a criminal case brought against me by the Federal Government. Jack worked tirelessly for me for over four years which resulted in a positive outcome that I believe would not have been achieved by any other lawyer.
Jack is not only a great lawyer, but a great man. At no point during the extremely stressful process did I feel that Jack did not genuinely care about me. I don’t think that I can adequately write a review that expresses the amount of gratitude that I feel for the work that Jack Arseneault did on my behalf.- Frank

Everything that was asked of him he was able to execute. I am grateful for his service. I would recommend him without any reservation- Dominique
"No words to express his level of commitment and professionalism"My name is Vanyo Petrov Minkov and you can google me in order to check that this post is not fake. Jack Arseneault literally saved my life. I was facing from 120 months up to life and the only reason I got back home after 40 months was his. I have absolutely no words to express his level of commitment and professionalism. He cared for me like a son and our connection wasn't like attorney/client, it was more like a father/son. Every second on the court, he fought like for his own kid. I strongly recommend the services of this amazing character. In my humble opinion He is the best lawyer you can get ...- Vanyo Minkov
