Our highly experienced and skilled criminal trial lawyers know exactly what to do in order to deliver the best possible results to clients facing criminal charges. We are not former prosecutors! All our criminal attorneys dedicated their careers to defense work, which takes completely different set of skills compared to prosecution. Every criminal attorney knows that defending criminal cases is a much more daunting task than prosecuting them.
We have defended thousands of white-collar criminal cases at all stages from initial investigations to trial and appeal and everything in between. We understand the pressure of facing a criminal investigation, let alone prosecution. In many cases, the mere accusation of misconduct or criminal offense can lead to catastrophic results to businesses and individuals, especially where professional licensing is involved. We are here to protect you from the most dramatic and ruinous consequences. Using our experience and skills, we do our best to minimize any damage and work hard to achieve the optimal resolution in even the most difficult cases.
Proactive approach to criminal investigations
The white-collar criminal defense attorneys at Norman Spencer believe in being proactive and aggressive from the very beginning of legal representation. When a client is facing criminal allegations, waiting idly until the investigators gather evidence and build their case is the last thing we like to do. Failure to act quickly may leave the defense a step behind. Instead, we go to work immediately. We treat each case as if it would go to trial. Aggressive and proactive approach from the case onset usually helps tremendously. Our lawyers will assess your exposure and develop risk-mitigation tactic. We will be with you throughout the entire process, from the investigation on, making sure that your interests are protected.
Engaging prosecutors early in the criminal investigation process cannot be underestimated. The sooner we spring into action the higher are your chances of more successful outcome of your case. In some cases, we could even convince the government to resolve the matter without filing criminal charges. Although such result could be difficult to secure, we have done it on many occasions. If charges will be filed, we will work tirelessly to mitigate your risks and exposure.
Over the course of their long criminal defense careers, our attorneys have amassed a wealth of experience dealing with just about any federal law enforcement agencies and state law enforcement agencies in New York and New Jersey. These include but are not limited:
- Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI)
- Secret Service
- Department of Homeland Security (DHS)
- Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CID)
- U.S. Department of Health & Human Service-Office of Inspector General (HHS-OIG)
