Honest Services Fraud
Areas of Practice

                are currently involved in one of the highest profile “honest services” prosecutions in Massachusetts. If you or a family member is the subject of an honest services fraud investigation or prosecution, we invite you to contact us to learn more about the depth of our experience, skills and knowledge in this area.

The “honest services” statute, codified at 18 U.S.C. §1346, has been utilized by the government to prosecute a staggeringly wide swath of conduct in both the public and private sectors, ranging from private employees who the government charges has defrauded his employer by breaching some fiduciary duty owed to the company, to local, state and federal politicians charged with breaching their fiduciary duty to provide their constituents with their “honest services.” While the statute has been the subject of intense criticism as being unconstitutionally vague, and the United States Supreme Court is presently considering three separate cases charged under this statute, it remains a valued tool for the Department of Justice, which is presently defending the constitutionality of the statute before the Supreme Court. If you or a family member is the subject of such an “honest services” investigation or prosecution, it is critically important that you obtain legal representation as early as possible in the process, such that your attorney can immediately begin his investigation. We have the resources, experience and skills to effectively defend honest services fraud investigations or prosecutions, and invite you to contact us to learn more.

Testimonials

Mr. Goldstein, I practice federal criminal defense in Oklahoma City. Last week I had the pleasure of watching you in action...I saw some of your cross examination on Thursday and your closing argument on Friday. You were absolutely phenomenal and I was very impressed with your trial skills. You are one hell of a trial lawyer!

~ Federal criminal defense attorney (in unsolicited email), February 2015

That was the best closing argument I have ever seen.

~ Co-Counsel to Attorney Goldstein after federal trial

Rob guided me through the most difficult time in my life ... His preparation for the case and his execution in trial were truly the difference ... 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.

I have spent a career watching and interacting with attorneys - as the elected district attorney, as a line prosecutor and defense attorney - you are one of a handful of the best lawyers I have ever seen in the courtroom.

~ Father of client, 2001 (Former elected district attorney, current defense attorney)

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.
