We handle cases in Washington, D.C., Virginia, and in federal courts nationwide.
Our Key Practice areas:
We represent clients charged with white collar offenses, or who are a target, subject or witness in a criminal investigation. Our boutique white collar practice provides a level of representation equal or superior to large law firms at a fraction of the cost. Click the link above for more details on our white collar practice.
In addition to our white collar practice, we represent clients charged with traditional criminal offenses. We routinely handle drug conspiracy cases, property crimes, and violent offenses. We have extensive first chair trial experience before juries and judges in criminal cases. Click the link above for more details on our felony practice.
We represent clients who face security clearance denials or revocations at administrative hearings and appeals. Because criminal prosecutions carry negative implications for a person’s security clearance, we developed an expertise in this area in order to more effectively represent those clients who hold, or may need, a security clearance.
