In our experience, people charged with embezzlement and other financial crimes are often fundamentally good, hardworking people caught up in difficult circumstances or affected by addiction or a psychological disorder. Tough economic conditions and personal adversity can lead to desperate acts such as embezzlement or fraud.
Perhaps to an even greater degree than other criminal defense matters, dealing effectively with a charge of embezzlement, fraud or some other "white collar" crime can require creativity and resourcefulness.
Whether you have been falsely accused or know you made a mistake and want the chance to make things right, we invite you to contact us for an initial consultation with proven attorney George Zulakis.
A Track Record Of Success In Negotiations And Litigation
Mr. Zulakis has more than 30 years of experience in numerous state-level cases involving allegations of:

- Various types of fraud, including Medicaid/Medicare fraud, prescription fraud and other alleged health care fraud
Our Okemos-based legal team is also prepared to handle your defense if you are accused of credit card fraud, passing bad checks, theft of computer equipment or other "white collar" financial crimes. In all such situations, we investigate thoroughly and consider all possible approaches for achieving a beneficial outcome through:
- Aggressive defense if you have been wrongfully accused or your rights have been violated
- Negotiation of restitution or another form of resolution that keeps you out of prison or jail
- Proactive efforts to help you get the treatment you may need for a gambling problem, substance addiction or psychological disorder — and to engage in dialog with the prosecution focused on demonstrating the value and importance of these efforts
