The criminal defense practice at Garrison, Levin-Epstein is led by the former First Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, the number two federal prosecutor in the state. With two former prosecutors as partners who practice criminal defense, our firm offers a wealth of criminal justice experience.
You need to protect your rights from the moment you are aware you are under investigation or charged with a “white collar” crime or any other criminal offense.
Our criminal defense team is known for its aggressive defense of white-collar, financial, and other complex criminal cases. We represent individuals and business entities in grand jury investigations and other criminal matters in Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, or wherever our clients need us to go. We have represented numerous targets, subjects, and witnesses in federal grand jury and state investigations into such diverse allegations as mail and wire fraud, securities fraud, antitrust violations, health care fraud, tax fraud, money laundering, bribery, violation of the Hobbs Act (extortion under color of official right), Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO), false statements, perjury, obstruction of justice, and conspiracy to commit these and other offenses.
Early guidance and decisions about what to say or do when under investigation can make an important difference to your future. Our experienced criminal defense lawyers will treat you personally and fairly to ensure that your rights are protected throughout the legal process.
We often measure our success by how little attention we and our clients receive, rather than how much. Although a primary objective of our work involves preventing our clients from ever being charged, if possible, and keeping them out of court when appropriate, we are trial lawyers and are fully prepared to defend our clients’ legal rights in court when that is in their best interest.
