Qualified and Respected Professionals
The value and ability of any lawyer is difficult to quantify. There is no national database listing or ranking lawyers either in terms of cost or results. Lawyers do not maintain "batting averages" or "won-lost" records. Each case is unique, as is each client, so that record keeping of past performance will reveal little about one's chances for success. How then, does one evaluate lawyers in search of the best or the most qualified for a particular case?
If your case is criminal, know this: We stand by our clients long after a judge or jury delivers a verdict. Whether a case is tried or negotiated to a plea agreement, we will work tirelessly for you until we have achieved your goals, whether they be a fair trial or a just result. If you receive a prison sentence, we can continue to represent you until you are released and your interactions with the criminal justice system fully end.
If your claim is civil, we will fight for your rights without fear or favor, and obtain results with your interests paramount. We work with our clients, not against them, keeping them fully informed at all critical stages of litigation.
Full Service Law Firm
The phrase "full service law firm" typically refers to the broadest spectrum of practice areas. To our lawyers, "full service law firm" means we stay with your case from the moment you engage our services to the time when your need for our help is over, whether that be after a verdict, an appeal, or even release from incarceration.
Federal Criminal and Grand Jury Practice
Jack Furlong and Scott Krasny have tried a number of substantial federal cases to verdict and both are intimately familiar with federal criminal practice. In addition, both have ample experience handling federal grand jury proceedings and complex criminal/corporate investigations, including those which lead to indictments.
