Dr. Fritz has been involved in the criminal justice system for over forty years, and has a unique perspective of the criminal justice system.  He is well aware of the number of innocent people found guilty for crimes they never committed.  In addition, he believes that there are alternative methods of punishment and that incarceration should only be used in extraordinary cases, i.e., crimes of extreme violence, and repeat offenders.  Most people incarcerated are either drug offenders, people who are suffering from mental illness, or people who do not have the resources for the best counsel available.  The less money a defendant can spend for legal representation; the less likely they will be successful defending and mitigating their charges.

Dr. Fritz is a former member of the Chicago Police Department, Special Operations Group, and a former  Counterintelligence Special Agent, US Department of Defense (DOD).  In his law enforcement capacity, he has performed complex criminal and counterintelligence investigations.  It is his law enforcement background that allows him to see the "whole" picture.  He is able to analyze the police reports, the methods of interrogation, and the handling of evidence.  This can be important when you are looking for sentence mitigation.

Dr. Fritz,  is a former adjunct professor at Ottawa University, where he taught advanced courses in abnormal psychology, psychological test and measurements and criminal justice.  In addition, Dr. Fritz has been administering forensic neurophysiological (polygraph) examinations for over thirty years, which has resulted in the exoneration of innocent defendants in cases involving child molestation, rape, homicide, burglary, and other major crimes.

Dr. Fritz has a doctorate degree in criminology/human services, a master of science degree in emotional disturbance, and a undergraduate degree in psychology.  He has been appointed by criminal courts to administer forensic polygraph examinations, neuropsychological assessments and evaluations, sentence mitigation reports, and comprehensive background investigations.  

Dr. Fritz has an extensive background in neuropsychological screening, mild head injury assessment, child neuropsychological assessment and intervention, advanced training in human clinical neuropsychology, evaluation of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, topographic brain mapping, quantitative electroencephalography (Qeeg), auditory/visual evoked potentials, and clinical behavioral modification.  He also has specialized training and certification in forensic interviewing techniques, and criminal investigations.  Dr. Fritz is licensed by the Illinois Department of Professional Regulation and the Arizona Department of Public Safety  as a private investigator, and is a full member of the American Psychological Association and the International Association of Correctional and Forensic Psychologists.


Dr. Fruchtman has worked in the criminal justice system for over thirty years.  He is the former director of the Arizona Office of Special Investigations, where he was the lead investigator in over 100 homicide investigations.  He is currently a college professor in criminal justice, and on the faculty of several colleges and universities.  Dr. Fruchtman has a doctoral degree in clinical psychology, and holds a master of science degree in criminal justice from the University of Alabama, and a masters of forensic science degree from National University.  Dr. Fruchtman has been court qualified as an expert in criminal investigations, polygraph and sentencing mitigation evaluations.  He has been appointed by various courts to act as an advocate for defendants. Dr. Fruchtman is a licensed private investigator, and is a certified criminal investigator.
