The firm represented a client in a criminal tax fraud trial in D.C. Superior Court, helping him to avoid conviction. It's a case with some history. In October 2017, we had represented this client in the first trial of this matter. That trial ended in a hung jury. The government opted to try him for a second time. So, in March 2018, we tried the case to a jury for a second time. Once again, we helped the client avoid conviction--it was a hung jury (March 2018).
