We Handle High-Profile and Low-Profile Cases


We handle high-profile cases throughout the country, representing people in federal and state courts, and before federal agencies including the IRS, SEC, and the FEC. We have a stellar track record at the negotiation table and in the courtroom—and we come ready, willing, and prepared for the fight at hand, ensuring nothing is left on the field.

We do everything we can to stop criminal investigations, to persuade authorities not to file charges, and to stop a story from ever breaking. We are proud of our successes in lower-profile cases, and while we cannot share the details of some of our best moments, we are gratified our clients received the best outcomes because of our job well done.


We’re Ready to Fight For You


Whether our clients are wrongly accused or simply had a lapse in judgment, we do everything we possibly can to obtain the best possible result.
