Health Care Fraud

As health care costs increase, the government is taking a closer look at the conduct of health care professionals. As a result, health care fraud investigations and prosecutions are on the rise, with many physicians and other medical professionals facing reputation-destroying allegations. MORE

Bribery and Public Corruption

Few stories are more appetizing to the media than those involving allegations of bribery and public corruption. Unfortunately, public officials who face these types of charges are nearly always tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. MORE

Campaign Fraud

In recent years, campaign finance reform has resulted in new laws and a new emphasis on the administrative oversight of political fundraising and elections. The changes have had some success in curtailing campaign fraud, but significant confusion remains about what you can and cannot do. MORE


Counterfeiting and forgery involving securities or debt instruments are serious criminal charges and are most often prosecuted at the federal level. And in federal court, inexperience can cost you dearly. MORE

Customs Violations

Customs rules change from year to year in regards to items that you can and cannot bring into the United States or export to other countries and how you have to declare or account for those things. The changes are so frequent, proving intent can be a challenge for prosecutors. MORE


The best way to defend embezzlement is to prevent criminal charges from ever being filed in the first place. To do that, you need to have an experienced embezzlement defense attorney who understands how grand jury investigations work. MORE

Environmental Law Violations

Manufacturers, businesses and even real estate developers may find themselves the target of a criminal investigation if the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) determines certain regulations and laws were violated. MORE

Foreign Corrupt Practices Act

Business practices abroad are often very different from those in the United States. In certain nations, paying or bribing foreign officials to gain entry into a market is an accepted part of doing business. Those nations may encourage it, but the U.S. government seeks to deter bribery via the FCPA. MORE

Money Laundering

Money laundering laws in the U.S. are broad enough to allow the government to seize any assets or property it can connect to criminal activity. This can make it difficult or impossible for the accused to pay for defense. MORE

Civil and Criminal Forfeiture

The use of civil and criminal forfeiture by federal and state authorities has grown dramatically in recent years. In theory, forfeiture deprives criminals of the financial gains associated with wrongdoing. Unfortunately, it can leave the accused without the means to pay for their defense. MORE

FBI Investigations

Any indication that you are under investigation for embezzlement, insurance fraud, corporate fraud or other white collar crime should be taken very seriously. Grand jury indictments may be avoided if proactive action is taken. MORE
