Fraud & Identity Theft
Fraud, broadly defined as making a material misrepresentation or failing to disclose a material fact to obtain something of value, can result in a criminal conviction and burdensome penalties such as fines and prison time. If you are facing serious felony charges for fraudulent behavior, it is crucial to understand your rights. The first step is speaking to a lawyer about your case.
The prosecution is likely building its case as you read this. You need to act quickly to protect your rights. Call 970-493-3600 or toll free 888-830-9445 for a free initial consultation with a Fort Collins fraud defense attorney.
Handling Complex Identify Theft Cases
Prosecutors can be extremely tough on those accused of fraud, particularly in the aftermath of high-profile fraud cases such as Bernie Madoff’s Ponzi scheme and the prevalence of identity theft. At the office of Eric A. Sunness, Attorney At Law, LLC, our lawyers and staff understand this and know what it takes to protect your rights and your personal and professional reputations.
We bring over 25 years of legal experience to our practice, a practice we have built on a proven approach of hard work and honesty. We aggressively defend against fraud charges throughout northern Colorado such as:
- Investment fraud
- Identity theft
- Forgery and check fraud
- Insurance fraud
- Real estate fraud

In every fraud case, our lawyers review the evidence for constitutional violations and other issues. If any are found, we meet with the district attorney’s office to request that the charges be dropped. If dropping the charges is not possible, we will negotiate with the prosecutor’s office for a lesser charge or lower penalty. Although the majority of our cases are resolved without the need for a trial, we are an accomplished and confident trial firm: We willingly takes cases in front of a judge or jury when necessary to vindicate clients’ rights.
