Brown White & Osborn LLP has a well-earned reputation as one of the premier criminal defense firms on the West Coast. Our attorneys have more than collective 90 years of experience in trying criminal cases and defending clients in criminal investigations, including experience as former federal prosecutors and public defenders. Over that time, the Firm’s attorneys have a history of achieving exceptional results in complicated and hard-fought contests. Often we can resolve a case during the investigation stage before charges are filed, after the case is charged, or after trial.
Both individuals and companies turn to the Firm when they discover they are under investigation or a criminal case has been filed by the U.S. Department of Justice, the District Attorney’s Office, or other federal, state and local government agencies. The Firm’s attorneys have represented many individuals and companies in grand jury investigations, government investigations, state criminal cases, and complex white-collar criminal prosecutions throughout California and the United States.
The Firm has a remarkable breadth and depth of experience in all types of criminal matters. The Firm’s attorneys have represented individuals and companies throughout the entire array of criminal matters, including bribery, antitrust, wiretap, food and drug, health care, environmental, banking, education and other alleged violations of government regulatory programs, securities, obstruction of justice, tax, government false statements, contracts, narcotics, false claims, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, campaign finance, ERISA, espionage, labor relations, public corruption, insurance, energy, trade secrets, perjury, mail and wire fraud, conspiracy, RICO, Small Business Administration, and money laundering.
The Firm’s attorneys have extensive experience in all stages of state and federal criminal investigations and proceedings, from conducting internal investigations, to representing witnesses, subjects and targets in grand jury investigations, to parallel criminal and civil proceedings, to trials and appellate work, to extraditions and foreign criminal investigations. Because of the Firm’s vigorous representation of its clients, many are never charged; some of the Firm’s greatest successes have been in investigations that never became public. The Firm’s attorneys are well known for their skills at trial, which helps us secure better settlement offers both before indictment and after.
While Brown White & Osborn is well known for our white-collar defense work, no criminal matter facing one of its clients, their family members or employees is inconsequential. Unlike many defense Firms that will not accept “blue collar crime” cases, we are ready and able to help,and at an economic and reasonable cost. We have achieved remarkable results for clients charged with a variety of federal and state crimes including, assault, sexual, threats, drug and weapon possession charges.
