Proactive and Aggressive Approach
When a client is dealing with a serious criminal allegation, our Miami white collar criminal defense attorneys take swift and aggressive action. We do not wait for the government to investigate and build a case against you. Our attorneys move quickly to assess your exposure and design a comprehensive risk-mitigation strategy. We guide you through the grand jury process, helping you to comply with your obligations, while protecting your interests.
When dealing with prosecutors and agents, we take a proactive role, presenting the government with a coherent explanation of the facts with the goal of avoiding the damaging effects of a federal indictment. If charges cannot be avoided, our experienced trial attorneys will conduct a full investigation and vigorously defend your interests in court.
Coordinated Defense Strategy
White collar criminal investigations are often coupled with parallel regulatory proceedings, which are independently investigated by state or federal enforcement authorities. In these situations, our attorneys develop a coordinated defense strategy to mitigate issues arising from any ongoing or potential parallel civil enforcement proceedings or private class and shareholder derivative actions.
