We defend people and businesses against civil enforcement actions by administrative agencies. That can be a civilÂ lawsuit by the government in state or federal court, which can result in a judgment for monetary damages, an injunction,Â restitution, fines, and other penalties. It can also be an administrative hearing before an administrative law judge, which can result in monetary penalties, the loss of your ability to transact business,Â and other consequences.Â These civil proceedingsÂ sometimes run parallel to an activeÂ criminal investigation, or they can kick-startÂ one if they end badly enough.
Whether it’s you or your business that’s in the line of fire,Â you need experienced counsel to defend you and protect your rights.Â In the past, we’ve successfully litigated the following cases, among others, and we can help you, too.

We’llÂ demand the legal process that you’re due, and we’ll defend your livelihood like it was our own.
