We fearlessly and tirelessly defend our clients against criminal charges in Federal and State Courts. Beginning with the investigative stage of a case, we focus on gathering the facts and analyzing evidence with the aim of preventing indictments. At this stage our goal is to convince prosecutors that no legal basis exists to initiate a criminal prosecution. We protect our clients’ rights when they are called to testify or choose to testify as witnesses on their own behalf before the grand jury. We vigorously defend clients’ rights in court. We fight the charges armed with winning legal strategies and challenge the government’s evidence at trial. We fight for our clients at trial, negotiate favorable plea agreements, when appropriate, and have had outstanding success in mitigating the penalties at sentencing. We often convince prosecutors that no indictment or civil charges should be brought against our clients, or obtain favorable dispositions for our clients without a trial.

In our federal and state criminal practice, we handled hundreds of cases representing a wide range of criminal cases including Medicaid fraud, financial fraud, violent crimes, driving while intoxicated, and drug and weapons conspiracies.
