Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act Prosecutions
Areas of Practice

                currently represent executives in a pending FDA-related investigation into alleged violations of the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act and other relevant statutes, which can range from failing to follow cGMP’s (current Good Manufacturing Practices) and improper marketing practices to mislabeling and the sale of controlled substances. If you or a family member is the subject of such an investigation, we invite you to contact us to learn more about the depth of our experience, skills and knowledge in this area.

The government has increased the resources devoted to investigating and prosecuting these offenses, and the FDA is working in conjunction with the Department of Justice and other investigative agencies, including the DEA, to identify and prosecute what it believes to be violations of relevant Federal criminal statutes. Defenses to these prosecutions are often factually and legally complex, and it is therefore imperative that you obtain legal representation as early as possible, such that your attorney can immediately begin his investigation. The goal of any such investigation is often twofold: acquire information essential to persuading the government that you have not committed any federal offense and, if necessary, begin to prepare a defense to a federal prosecution in the event the government ultimately decides to seek an indictment. We have the resources, experience and skills to effectively defend FDCA investigations or prosecutions, and invite you to contact us to learn more.

That was the best closing argument I have ever seen.

Goldstein pounced!

That was the best closing argument I have ever seen.

~ Co-Counsel to Attorney Goldstein after federal trial

I was one of seven lawyers participating in an 8 week trial for multiple defendants in federal court in Cincinnati, Ohio. Rob Goldstein was one of the other lawyers. His preparation, mastery of the facts and performance in the courtroom were outstanding. I have been in practice for 33 years, with 4 years as an assistant county prosecutor and the rest as a criminal defense attorney. I have had more than 250 jury trials in my career and seen many lawyers try cases. Rob Goldstein is as fine an attorney as I have ever seen.
