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.

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!

I was astonished to learn he had graduated from law school only in 1995. I would have attributed another fifteen years experience to his resume.
