Areas of Practice

Criminal Litigation

When you select an attorney to represent you in potentially life-changing criminal litigation, you must dig deeper than simply reviewing facially attractive website pages of prospective attorneys and law firms. You should ask any prospective attorney about their actual trial experience defending clients in complex criminal prosecutions, how many government witnesses and what range of witnesses they have cross-examined, how many substantial opening and closing arguments they have delivered in major government prosecutions, and how many unique legal motions they have filed that have resulted in precedent-setting decisions. We then invite you to compare our record and experience.

We have represented individuals in virtually every type of white collar prosecution, creating winning strategies in complex cases including penny stock or microcap fraud, bank fraud, health care fraud, mortgage fraud and ponzi scheme prosecutions. We have de-constructed prosecutions involving millions and millions of pages of pretrial discovery. We have cross-examined virtually every conceivable witness—from cooperating corporate executives, to experts in arcane topics, to lifetime criminals. We have delivered lengthy opening statements and closing arguments in complex trials lasting months. And we have developed creative, precedent setting legal arguments that are the subject matter of national publications, and emulated by attorneys nationwide.

A federal or otherwise serious criminal prosecution jeopardizes your freedom, family and reputation—all that is worth living for. You need lawyers with actual trial experience and a record of success defending federal and state investigations and prosecutions. If you or a family member is the subject or target of a criminal investigation or prosecution, please contact us to learn more.

I truly trusted him with my life and he came through. Not a great promoter or guy who likes to hype, but he delivers where it counts. I am truly grateful that I selected his name over the vast number of attorneys in the Boston area. I rarely provide recommendations, but in Rob's case, I recommend that anyone facing serious criminal charges, where their freedom and livelihood is at stake, that they contact Rob."
