Our collective experience is nearly entirely in the area of criminal law. And our experience does not consist entirely of plea bargains; clients hire us to go to trial and to win trials. We are not former federal prosecutors who rush into the United States Attorney’s Office to cooperate a client as soon as we’re hired: instead we are retained to figure out a way to turn a very bad situation into a much better one. And this can be done due to our decades of experience in federal cases which includes exhaustive investigation and trial preparation; with such tenacious advocacy we can oftentimes elicit very favorable plea deals from prosecutors instead of the government risking a trial they may lose. These are not mere words: our record is easily and publicly verifiable.
