Fraud Crimes Attorney in Westchester County
Put a Former Prosecutor on Your Side
Being charged with fraud is serious and, if you are convicted, can lead to a criminal record that will follow you for life. Fraud charges can be complex cases and require a lot of evidence from both the defense and the prosecution. It can be difficult or impossible to navigate this on your own or with a court-appointed attorney because cases are often complex, time-consuming, and require a nuanced knowledge of the law.
Our Westchester County fraud defense lawyer cares about you and will focus her energy and resources on your case, without passing you off to a less experienced assistant or paralegal. Our firm is dedicated to your case and will do everything we can to defend you. Attorney Marcia Payton has successfully defended hundreds of cases in her long career as a defense attorney, and before that, she was a prosecutor with the New York City narcotics division. She has been on both sides of the bench, knows how the court system works, and how to use that knowledge to your advantage.
