What Makes Us Different

  • Lead Counsel in Hundreds of Trials

  • Former State Prosecutors
  • Former FBI & DEA Agents
  • Superb Track Record of Dismissed Cases
  • Clients Benefit from Our Experience and Reputation

Our experience with law enforcement and federal authorities is profound. Many of us were active prosecutors for years and we know many of the current prosecutors on the state and the federal level as our former colleagues. This knowledge allows us to establish a fruitful dialogue with the the agents and prosecutors that are handling a criminal case, long before that case is ever charged or indicted. Establishing this line of communication is critical and it can help lessen, reduce, and sometimes even avoid criminal charges all together by effectively describing our clients’ situation to the government without involvement of courts.
