About our San Clemente, CA: office

Bienert | Katzman PC are trial lawyers with a record of getting results. The firm's lawyers have litigated more than 100 complex trials and dozens of appeals and have been recognized as among the best in their practice areas by U.S. News and World Report, Best Lawyers and Super Lawyers. Our lawyers, several of whom are leaders in their respective Bar Associations, include nationally recognized former prosecutors, public defenders, civil litigators, and the former United States Trustee for all of Southern California.

Our firm is a leader in complex federal white-collar criminal litigation. Our attorneys have handled cases in a wide variety of areas, including: Accounting Fraud, Bank Fraud, Bankruptcy Fraud, Bribery, Computer Crimes, Counterfeiting, Credit Card Fraud, Embezzlement, Environmental Offenses, Extortion, Forgery, Import-Export Offenses, Insider Trading, Human Trafficking, Internet Fraud, Medicaid/Medicare Fraud, Money Laundering, Mortgage Fraud, Ponzi and Pyramid Schemes, Procurement Fraud, Public Corruption, Racketeering/RICO, Tax Evasion, Tax Fraud, Email Intercepting, Health Care Fraud, Identity Fraud, Insurance Fraud, Investment Fraud, Securities Fraud, Telemarketing Fraud, Wire Fraud, and Witness Tampering. In addition to vigorously defending our clients during the investigation and trial stages of a case, we are experienced in identifying alternatives to prison in the event a sentence is imposed. These include community service, house arrest, a monetary fine, a suspended sentence, a work furlough, and placement in a drug rehabilitation center. With our extensive trial experience in civil and commercial cases, we give our clients the ability to litigate in both state and federal courts secure in the knowledge that we can see the case through to trial and beyond. Our federal insolvency practice, led by the former United States Trustee for five Judicial Districts, including all of Southern California and Hawaii, gives our clients the ability to litigate matters in Federal Bankruptcy Court with enhanced proficiency and credibility. We provide insolvency-related services in the areas of creditors' rights, non-dischargeability and revocation actions, fraudulent transfer and preference litigation, and all other adversarial or contested matters that call for an extra level of excellence.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") retained Bienert | Katzman PC as one of three law firms nationwide to audit and investigate fraudulent loans made by a national lending institution, resulting in the largest failure and FDIC receivership in banking history. The firm, as approved FDIC counsel, assisted in the investigation, pursuit and litigation of fraud related claims arising from hundreds of millions of dollars in losses from toxic loans. Bienert | Katzman PC is uniquely qualified to investigate and pursue these claims, given the firm's extensive experience in criminal, litigation and bankruptcy matters.

Thomas H. Bienert is the former President of the Orange County Bar Association for 2013-14. Steven J. Katzman is the former President of the Orange County Bankruptcy Forum for 2011-12.
