Your Case. Our Cause.

We’ve litigated hundreds of employment related matters before Federal and State courts and administrative
tribunals across the country. Our aggressive, no-nonsense approach to these claims ensures that our
cases are either expeditiously settled, litigated or tried to verdict.

We aggressively defend individuals and companies in the trial of Federal criminal cases, 
recognizing that even though all cases cannot proceed to trial they must be prepared with
that end in mind.

We bring a trial lawyer’s perspective to these matters with an innovative approach to pursuing cases even
after Federal and State prosecutors have chosen not to intervene.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Criminal Law
  • Criminal Law - Federal (White Collar Crime)

  • Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) -- Employee
