Our Recent White Collar Defense Case
We recently got done (for now) with a white collar defense case where the Federal Government alleged that a former attorney had engaged in what is called a "Ponzi Scheme." Many hours went into the review of thousands of pages of tax, bank and other financial documents which the Government claimed supported their case. Dealing with the Federal Government can be complicated - but dealing with the prosecution by the Federal Government of a lawyer is very complicated. Lot's of personality. Anyway, on the date of trial, we and the Federal Government were ready to get the trial started, but the client/lawyer got wedding day jitters and did not show for trial. The Government's agents are currently looking for our client, so his case is not yet over. Once again, stay tuned for details.
