Ann Fitz - Attorney, Beverly Hills, California
Attorney’s ProfileAttorney Ann Fitz brings more than 10 years of nationwide legal experience in the criminal arena to her Los Angeles-area criminal defense law firm. She is a former prosecutor and assistant district attorney. In private criminal defense practice, she has handled numerous high-profile white collar crime, Internet-based crime and other criminal cases.
Ms. Fitz's interest in criminal law began when she served as a juror on a vehicular homicide case while in college. The experience left her with a unique third-person perspective that she successfully utilizes in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of a case, and in developing viable theories of defense.
Ms. Fitz has been frequently called upon to provide her insights and opinions as a legal commentator on the Fox News Network, CNN, HLN, MSNBC and appeared as a regular guest on truTV's In Session (formerly CourtTV) from 2009-2011. Her distinctive accomplishments in criminal defense have been featured in numerous nationally well-known publications and media outlets including Rolling Stone Magazine, Wired Magazine, CBS's primetime news magazine 48 Hours Mystery and NBC's Nightly News.
Ms. Fitz's work was instrumental in amending Georgia's sex offender registration law and establishing a clear definition of what constitutes criminal liability in federal child pornography cases. She is a recognized expert in internet and computer crimes cases.
In addition, Ms. Fitz has helped a number of convicted defendants challenge their sentences and convictions in the state and federal appellate courts. She has prepared motions and briefs in the 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 10th, and 11th Circuits, as well as the United States Supreme Court.
"Everyone deserves justice, regardless of the crime they are charged with," Ms. Fitz explains. "Our nation was founded on that principle, and the Constitution guarantees it."
