WHITE-COLLAR CRIMINAL DEFENSE
At Mahany & Ertl, you will never be backed into a corner. We take the government from the first day of our representation. Our goal is to stop the prosecution early on in their investigation. Our lawyers have been able to secure non-criminal referrals throughout the United States. We have also secured dismissals of existing charges.
If an indictment has already been made, we deploy a proven motion and discovery strategy designed to explore and exploit weaknesses in the government's case. If all else fails, we stand fully prepared to try - and win - your case.
While no lawyer can guarantee a favorable outcome, our model has been successfully developed and refined over the years. We now have a success record that no one can match.
Most law firms will "promise the moon" only to recommend a plea bargain as trial approaches. At Mahany & Ertl, we believe the best defense is an aggressive and strong offense.
Behind the scenes, we employ the finest team of highly skilled forensic accountants and investigators. Our team includes well-respected former federal agents that understand the government's "play book" and know where to unearth hidden or concealed evidence favorable for the defense.
We also are unique in our use of jury consultants, forensic psychologists, and focus groups. If trial is necessary, we pride ourselves on being better prepared than the government and best prepared to present your story to a jury in a way they will understand.
Whether you ultimately go to trial or elect a negotiated strategy, our defense team will be fully prepared to go to trial and therefore best able to advise you on the strengths and weaknesses of the government's case against you. We can often negotiate a plea proposal that avoids prison.
