APPROACH TO HANDLING REPRESENTATIONS
Our cases are handled from an initial subpoena or search warrant, through to a grand jury investigation, ending in the case either being dropped - our first goal, either for lack of evidence or prospective merit, or handled through to trial or to plea and sentencing. Civil litigation is also part of our White Collar practice and handling civil matters in the above practice areas is part of what we do on a regular basis. We also conduct internal investigations for clients.
We believe in individualized attention to our clients and focus on a quality practice, with a select member of clients given full personal attention. Our small setting allows for the utmost discretion and client confidentiality in the sensitive area of White Collar litigation. We pride ourselves in giving individual attention to each client and assisting them in getting through a very trying time in their lives.
