I am committed to addressing possible business problems before they spiral out of control.
My strong legal background provides me with a first-hand perspective of the evidence prosecutors use to build cases against individuals charged with mail fraud, wire fraud, healthcare fraud and other serious crimes of fraud. Part of my success stems from carefully investigating each case and taking the time to research and understand the regulations and other unique aspects of the business environment in which the facts at issue occurred.
