What do you focus on?

I represent clients through all stages of government investigations and criminal and civil litigation.

I have seen both sides of criminal cases, so I can effectively advise clients how best to proceed.

What do you see on the horizon?

I see the continued aggressive expansion of government investigations into corporations and individuals.
