I am a criminal defense attorney who specializes in complex international criminal prosecutions. For twenty-two (22) years I worked for the Department of Justice, at both the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia and the Narcotic and Dangerous Drug Section in Washington, D.C. During that time, I handled more than eighty jury trials, as well as thousands of other court proceedings. I have significant expertise in international drug and money laundering prosecutions, mail and wire fraud, as well as violent crime and financial investigations.
As a criminal defense attorney, I have represented defendants in federal court in Washington, D.C., Miami, Tampa, Brooklyn and Manhattan, as well as other jurisdictions. I work with a team of other professionals and my law firm provides investigative and translation services to all our clients.
Based upon my significant experience, I believe that I am uniquely well qualified to identify the problems in any particular criminal case – whether it is legal, factual, or practical. It is my responsibility to exploit the Government’s problems (and every case has problems) to the benefit of my clients. I pride myself in keeping in constant contact with my clients and their families and am committed to providing the highest quality legal services from the beginning of a case until its ultimate conclusion.
