We Investigate Every Detail of Cases Prosecuted Under Federal Criminal Law

We do not take any criminal accusation at face value. As soon as you notify us of the government’s potential interest in you, we will immediately begin a thorough investigation of all of the facts and the case against you.

We will interview any witnesses, closely examine any witness statements to law enforcement, and perform a careful examination of every material fact, including financial statements, documents, e-mails, surveillance and other evidence. We will determine how the evidence was gathered and if the government obtained evidence illegally, we will expose it.
