Confidence Proficiency Experience

Mr. Wisenberg has a proven record of success in helping his clients avoid indictment and has personally tried numerous complex, high-profile white collar criminal jury trials during the course of his career as a federal fraud prosecutor and white collar defense lawyer. Many of these trials were multi-week and multi-month white collar proceedings, involving dozens of witnesses and literally hundreds or thousands of exhibits.

Clients also hire Mr. Wisenberg to represent them in federal sentencing hearings, where he has obtained probation and other dramatic downward variances under the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines on their behalf.

Prior to entering private practice in 1999, Mr. Wisenberg had a distinguished government career, including his service as Deputy Independent Counsel in the Whitewater/Lewinsky investigation, where he was chosen by Judge Kenneth Starr to conduct the grand jury questioning of President Bill Clinton. Mr. Wisenberg also served as Chief of the Financial Institution and Health Care Fraud Unit in the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Texas, where he supervised 75-100 white collar investigations.

His experience working both defense and prosecution sides of federal white collar cases in federal courts and United States Attorneys’ Offices throughout the country, has given Mr. Wisenberg valuable insights into how the federal government develops and prosecutes its white collar cases. It has also given him credibility with federal prosecutors and judges.
