Criminal Matters

We strongly believe that juries have the same priorities whether they are hearing civil or criminal cases. That’s one reason that our firm continues to represent clients facing criminal charges – not only do we enjoy the challenge that criminal cases often bring, but our faith in the judicial system compels us to help these folks even when facing long odds and the formidable resources of governmental agencies.

Our criminal defense team has brought cases to trial in jurisdictions across the nation. While this work often involves the defense of clients in state criminal courts, we also represent corporations and individuals charged in white-collar criminal matters and regularly counsel clients facing criminal investigations by federal and state authorities. We also take pride in our history of vigorously representing public figures in high-profile matters that might include criminal charges as well as civil claims.

Several of our lawyers began their careers as prosecutors, and we think that experience is a major benefit to clients. We tend to evaluate criminal cases from both the prosecution and the defense viewpoints, allowing us to better anticipate strategies from the other side of the aisle.

Our work for clients in criminal matters is quite diverse, and includes:
