Proactive and Aggressive Approach

Dan C. Guthrie, Jr. in Dallas, TX is an attorney whose practice involves white collar investigations and independent defense of indictments and investigations in Dallas, TX and throughout the United States. He also represents whistleblowers who may be eligible for a reward from the government in exchange for their knowledge of tax fraud, fraud against the government, corporate fraud by public companies and commodities fraud. Mr. Guthrie is a former state and federal prosecutor with extensive jury trial experience. He is an independent, proactive, “hands on” lawyer who believes that no stone should be left unturned in order to effectively represent his client. In defense of his clients, Mr. Guthrie will:

  • Proactively and aggressively defend his clients in federal grand jury investigations
  • Maintain a vigorous trial defense of federal white collar indictments
  • Be thorough and totally independent during corporate internal investigations
  • Keenly represent Whistleblowers seeking rewards for information of fraud or corporate wrongdoing

Mr. Guthrie has successfully handled a number of complex and high profile white collar cases. He obtained the acquittal of an Arkansas banker and lawyer against federal criminal charges prosecuted by Whitewater Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr. In connection with that case, Mr. Guthrie subpoenaed President Bill Clinton and questioned the President under oath in videotaped testimony at The White House.

In addition, Mr. Guthrie has also handled numerous complex white collar cases involving millions of pages of documents. As an integral part of his representation, Mr. Guthrie employs teams of experienced forensic accountants, former F.B.I. and I.R.S. Special Agents and computer forensic experts.

He also utilizes state-of-the-art tools to review, analyze and organize large quantities of Electronically Stored Information (“ESI”) such as digitally stored documents, emails and text messages which are at the heart of most large white collar prosecutions today. In this way, he is able to effectively review voluminous information to uncover the favorable and exculpatory evidence for his clients that is overlooked or ignored by federal prosecutors.

When retained during the grand jury investigation phase of a case, he has prevented numerous indictments from being returned against his clients by his proactive and aggressive approach.
