When clients are facing indictment or criminal charges, they call us. As a career federal and state prosecutor, Tom Johnson has unparalleled experience in the criminal justice system, having handled thousands of criminal matters. As federal practitioners, we advise, represent and guide clients who are under investigation by federal and state regulators through this turbulent and uncertain process. We orchestrate, oversee and conduct a broad range of internal investigations, including Title IX investigations and advise clients on matters pending before state and federal agencies.
Other areas of practice include handling general civil litigation matters, civil writs and appeals. We are also well-versed in advising and representing religious institutions, as well as in the areas of non-profit, constitutional, religious freedom and public law. Our experience in all three branches of government enables us to counsel clients about pending legislation, government relations, and public law. We bring decades of experience at the highest levels in dealing with the government, coupled with extensive courtroom experience ranging from superior court trials to argument before the Supreme Court of California. When the stakes are high, the broad experience we bring to bear makes the difference for our diverse clientele.
