A Washington Law Firm with a Focus on Litigation.

White Collar Criminal Defense

We maintain an active practice representing individuals and entities under criminal investigation or indictment. We bring to that practice the judgment, perspective, and jury trial skills that our members have gained from previous service as federal prosecutors or long experience in white collar defense. Our experience includes representation of clients facing a variety of criminal charges, including mail and wire fraud, antitrust, securities fraud, false claims, health care fraud, environmental violations, procurement fraud, bribery and gratuities, bank fraud, conflict of interest, computer crimes, tax evasion, espionage, and foreign corrupt practices.

Complex criminal matters often involve multiple investigations going on at one time, and our experience includes the representation of clients involved in parallel grand jury, congressional or administrative investigations, and civil proceedings. High profile cases can present special considerations for the attorney and the client, and our members have experience in such highly publicized cases as Watergate, Iran-Contra, Whitewater, and Enron. We have experience representing Members of Congress and the executive branch in public corruption and conflict of interest investigations, and we litigated a case of first impression involving the application of the Speech or Debate Clause to the first ever execution of a search warrant on a Congressman’s office. Where possible, our goal is to avoid indictment altogether. In the event an indictment is returned, we have the trial experience to mount a forceful defense in court, or to guide our clients through the complexities of the plea negotiation process and the Federal Sentencing Guidelines.
