Our Competitive Advantage
At Stumphauzer & Sloman our attorneys offer a strong competitive advantage to clients navigating complex civil and criminal litigation and investigations.
Unique Government Insight
Our attorneys have years of experience working inside the federal government. Our principals draw on their past service as federal prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney’s Office and judicial law clerks for federal judges. Our lawyers understand how the federal government sets its priorities, allocates resources, and investigates fraud and abuse allegations in civil and criminal cases. We use this unique insight to craft comprehensive legal strategies that protect our clients’ interests and resolve their legal issues as quickly, economically, and favorably as possible.
Focused Legal Practice
We are not generalists. Our team focuses exclusively on representing clients in fraud-related litigation and investigations. This intense focus translates into outstanding results for our clients in government regulatory enforcement proceedings, white collar criminal defense cases, internal investigations, whistleblower actions, and fraud- and fiduciary-related civil litigation.
We also focus our practice on particular industries. A substantial number of our matters involve health care, banking and securities, and municipal finance. As a result, we have developed a keen understanding of our clients’ business operations, their competitive pressures, and their unique legal and regulatory challenges. Put simply, we speak our clients’ language. Our firm’s concentration and attorneys’ pedigree ensures that clients are represented by a talented legal team with the skills and resources needed to handle complex, high-risk legal matters.
Stumphauzer & Sloman is not a high-volume practice. By design, we accept only a small number of high-profile cases. This means that we offer personalized and attentive services to each of our clients, respond to their questions and concerns promptly, and design custom-tailored litigation strategies. We focus on building strong and lasting partnerships with each of our clients, and we take the time to view each matter from our clients’ unique perspective.
Aggressive and Creative Strategies
Our attorneys are trial-ready. Our firm’s principals have collectively tried more than 75 federal cases to jury verdict. We are well-known and respected by the government agencies that initiate and prosecute high-stakes cases against our clients. While we aim to resolve all cases before they go to trial, these agencies know we will mount a creative and aggressive defense throughout the course of litigation. This allows our lawyers to often reach negotiated resolutions that secure better results for our clients than they would otherwise obtain at trial.
