We can guide our clients through government investigations.  In government-facing matters, it is important to have a defense attorney representing your best interest. They understand the dynamics of a prosecutor’s charging decision and can design and implement strategies to seek aversion of criminal charges.

We focus on getting the best resolutions as quickly as possible.  Of course, the best resolution of a criminal matter is achieved when no charges are ever brought, whether because a successful internal investigation provides the basis for a negotiated resolution or because presenting a vigorous defense early shows the government authority the downside to pursuing prosecution.  We recognize the mere filing of a criminal charges, even ones that lack merit, can ruin a client’s reputation and trigger catastrophic financial losses.
