Providing Zealous Defense to Those from All Walks of Life—Arizona Fraud Lawyer

If you are charged with any type of fraud in Arizona, you may face very serious state or federal charges. Fraud is a form of white collar crime so those charged with a fraud criminal offense are typically professionals or businessmen who are charged with misconduct in financial transactions. Fraud is a very serious criminal offense and the media is replete with examples of those convicted of fraud who often serve longer sentences than those accused of violent crimes.

Arizona criminal defense attorney Diane Sullivan understands the extreme complexity involved in a fraud case, which may involve complex and elaborate financial transactions.  Ms. Sullivan has handled many fraud matters as both a prosecutor and defense attorney in Maricopa County, including those where the volume of documents filled boxes and boxes in huge storage rooms.  An effective defense strategy in a fraud case or other type of white-collar crime generally requires extensive review and analysis of voluminous documents and an understanding of complex financial transactions.  Ms. Sullivan and her white-collar forensic team engage in exhaustive investigation and analysis of these transactions so that we can develop the most effective defense strategy to your fraud charges.

Regardless of whether you were charged under Arizona law or federal statutes, fraud involves employing deception to facilitate financial gain.  There are a virtually unlimited number of types of fraud, including but not limited to the following:

  • Tax fraud
  • Securities fraud
  • Credit card fraud
  • Fraudulent real estate transactions
  • Fraud committed against financial institutions
  • Wire fraud
  • Identity theft
  • Mail fraud

These are only a few examples of types of fraud that can have a serious negative impact on your future.  If you are convicted of fraud, either on state or federal charges, you may face incarceration in county jail or state prison, substantial fines, an obligation to pay restitution, probation, a misdemeanor or felony conviction and other serious consequences.  Because fraud is a crime involving moral turpitude, a fraud conviction can have other serious long-term impacts on your life, including the creation of a barrier to certain occupations and professions as well as deportation or other adverse immigration consequences.

If you are charged with a white-collar crime, including any form of fraud, you may be facing the criminal justice system for the first time in your life.  It is essential that you do not discuss the case with anyone, particularly the prosecutor or investigators. Law enforcement authorities and prosecutors handle thousands of fraud cases and are well versed in how to get you to provide evidence that they can use to develop a strong case against you.  If you are facing fraud charges in Arizona or anywhere in Maricopa County, you should immediately contact Diane Sullivan and put the experience of a former prosecutor on your side.

Experienced Arizona fraud attorney Dianne Sullivan can analyze the facts and financial documents in your fraud case so that she can advise you of your options and build the best possible defense strategy.  While it is always Ms. Sullivan's goal to obtain dismissal of the charges or to prevail at trial, she will look for ways to negotiate the best possible plea agreement where other options are not available.  She is often able to obtain plea agreements that keep you out of jail and protect your reputation.   Ms. Sullivan provides effective criminal and DUI defense, including defending against fraud charges, throughout Maricopa County.  Our criminal defense team can handle cases in Mesa, Tempe, Avondale, Goodyear, Glendale, Surprise, Chandler, Scottsdale or any court in Maricopa County, Arizona.  We offer a confidential consultation absolutely free so call us today at 480-284-8740.
