From being served with a Grand Jury subpoena as a witness, to being told you are the subject of an investigation, to being indicted with a crime, a person’s encounter with federal agents, prosecutors, and the criminal justice system is often a traumatic experience.
Without zealous and effective representation, the criminal justice system does not work. We have spent substantial portions of our careers as prosecutors and criminal defense attorneys and know what works (and what doesn’t) for both. We have tried dozens of criminal jury trials and have argued numerous criminal appeals.
We have represented individuals and organizations under investigation and charged with crimes and in ancillary criminal proceedings regarding extradition and collateral challenges of convictions.
