We have years of experience in representing clients in criminal matters as well as pre-criminal investigations and criminal defense. Our attorneys represented corporations, corporate officers, directors and employees, small businesses and business owners, government employees, and private individuals.
In dealing with criminal and pre-criminal investigations, it is important to us to minimize our clients’ criminal exposure to the minimum before charges are filed. We are experts at resolving problems before things get out of hands. If you are under a criminal investigation, contact our team today.
