White Collar Criminal Defense

White Collar Criminal Defense Attorneys Serving Corporations, Executives, and Professionals 


Uniquely Experienced to Defend Challenging White Collar Cases

Our initial goal is to protect clients from charging exposure and reputational harm by providing thorough investigation, careful analysis, and strategic advice. During the course of our representation, we often communicate with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and/or a county prosecutor’s office.

We defend clients accused of a variety of felony criminal offenses including:

  • bank fraud
  • white collar conspiracy
  • government contracting and procurement fraud
  • healthcare fraud
  • money laundering
  • mortgage and lending fraud
  • criminal regulatory violations
  • tax fraud

Pre-Charging Representation During Criminal and Regulatory Investigations 

For clients facing investigations by federal agencies such as the DOD, DOJ, FBI, EPA, IRS, and SEC, or by state agencies such as DFI and DOR, we frequently employ forensic experts, former federal agents and local law enforcement officers to investigate and substantiate defenses to enable clients to rebut allegations of wrongdoing, fraud and abuse. Prosecutors may decline to file criminal charges when presented with compelling circumstances developed from a defense investigation, evidence of a client’s good faith compliance with the law, and mitigating actions.

We encourage potential clients to meet with us as soon as they become aware of any issue involving alleged criminal wrongdoing or criminal investigation. It is critical for potential clients to understand their rights and how counsel can protect those rights before investigators contact them. Some of our most successful outcomes and resolutions result from our early intervention with the government, thorough investigation, and defense preparation.

Representing Victims of White Collar Crime

When charges are unavoidable or have already been filed, we provide aggressive courtroom advocacy to assert our clients’ rights for all pretrial proceedings, trials, sentencings, and parallel civil or regulatory proceedings.
