White collar criminal defense

We represent companies and people who are accused of crimes by the government. Our practice is generally limited to white-collar defense work, which includes fraud and conspiracy. For example, Sara won a complete acquittal at trial of a clinical laboratory executive who was accused of Medicare fraud. We have also worked with witnesses who are testifying before a grand jury or simply being interviewed by their company's lawyers during an internal investigation.

A key part of our representation of you will include learning everything we can about your industry. This helps us understand the context of the government's charges and better defend you against them.


There is no experience more difficult than facing criminal charges. Your company's future or your personal freedom are at stake. For most of our clients, these charges are their first involvement in the criminal justice system. We will be available to explain every step of the process so you understand what is happening.


Here are some examples of white collar cases that we've handled in the past:
