White Collar Defense
In addition to practicing in the area of general criminal defense, James, House, Downing, & Lueken P.A. has extensive experience in the white collar criminal arena. The Firm is listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers in the area of white-collar criminal defense.
James, House, Downing, & Lueken P.A. has handled many high-profile criminal trials and has a reputation for vigorously defending its clients in court. However, the firm is well-versed in negotiating and persuading the Government that, in appropriate cases, matters should not be brought to the public forum and should instead be resolved in a non-public, private, and civil manner. Criminal investigations frequently overlap with on-going civil law matters, and our Firm has experience handling these types of parallel proceedings. The Firm can assist with internal investigations and can also help with compliance issues.
When necessary and hopefully as a matter of last resort, the Firm’s attorneys have represented clients in white-collar criminal prosecutions (usually involving some sort of fraud allegations). They have also been successful in negotiating favorable plea agreements if appropriate and obtaining outright acquittals in front of a jury. White collar criminal matters may include but not be limited to mail fraud, wire fraud, money laundering, false claims, racketeering, obstruction of justice, conspiracy, false statements, health care fraud, perjury, bribery, tax fraud, banking crimes, procurement fraud, securities fraud, pre-indictment investigations, grand jury proceedings, and post-conviction relief and appeals.
