Committed to our clients, we are with you... every step of the way.

“Our lawyers have an enviable track record defending individuals and entities against the government in criminal and regulatory investigations and litigation.” 



The firm brings bring deep experience to defending clients against government investigations and criminal matters from the earliest investigative phase through trial and appeal. When your liberty, your business, or your reputation is at stake, we advocate fearlessly and guide you steadfastly through the criminal or investigative process.  For over 40 years clients have relied on our skill and judgment to resolve difficult criminal matters successfully and discretely, often in the early stages of an investigation.  Others drawn into investigations as witnesses have depended on us to navigate the process in ways that avoid reputational damage.


Former federal prosecutors – both civil and criminal—make up the core of our criminal defense and investigations practice.  We understand how prosecutors think and what is important to them, and draw on our experience as government lawyers in negotiating with the government and litigating against it if that is the best course for the client.  Having seen the investigative and criminal process from both sides, our lawyers have the ability and judgment to guide clients through the challenges of facing the government as an adversary.


We have handled criminal and investigative matters spanning an array of substantive areas, from securities and health care fraud, to environmental crimes, to civil and criminal regulatory violations.  We develop strategy with an eye to avoiding potentially harmful collateral consequences of a criminal resolution, whether in domestic relations, licensing, or other realms. Our goal at all times is to see clients through the investigative or criminal process to the best possible outcome, whether that is achieved through cooperating with an investigation, defending an indictment, or fighting aggressively at trial.
