A Nationwide Federal Criminal Defense Practice

I am white collar criminal defense attorney Solomon L. Wisenberg, and I represent clients in all phases of a federal criminal case, including:

All Investigations

  • Federal criminal investigations: I represent target, witnesses and subjects of federal criminal investigations.
  • Grand jury investigations: Whether you received a target letter or a subpoena to appear before a grand jury, you still have options that can limit your exposure to prosecution.
  • Corporate internal investigations: I handle all corporate internal investigations, including investigations of alleged fraud, embezzlement, employee theft, and money laundering.
  • Insurance fraud inquiries: The insurance industry has its own fraud unit that investigates and advocates prosecution of alleged insurance fraud. I can help protect your right at every stage of these inquiries.

Dedicated Defense Against Fraud Charges

  • Wire and mail fraud: Using the mail, phone, fax, internet or other forms of communication in a scheme to unlawfully acquire money or property is considered to be wire and/or mail fraud. I have extensive experience defending against these charges.
  • Tax fraud: IRS criminal investigation division agents are extremely aggressive. If you are the subject of a tax fraud investigation, you need competent legal counsel as soon as possible.
  • Bank and mortgage fraud: Banks and mortgage lenders may encourage you to make a false statement on a loan application. If you miss a payment, they will refer your case to federal prosecutors.
  • Health care fraud: Failure to comply with the health care industry’s myriad regulations can result in federal prosecution.
  • Securities and investment fraud: This may involve a wide range of criminal accusations, including insider trading, brokerage misrepresentation and SEC investigations. I understand how to build a solid defense against these charges.

Defense Against Other White Collar Criminal Charges

  • Public corruption, bribery and Hobbs Act: I have represented individuals in cases involving alleged corruption by executives and public officials at the highest level.
  • Theft of federal property: From misuse of federal grants to running a side business at your government job, I am prepared to help defend against theft charges.
  • Export/import violations including arms shipments: I understand how to handle all export/import violation cases, including violations of the Arms Export Control Act and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
  • False statements to government officials: It is a federal crime to lie to a government agent, even if you are not under oath or trying to cheat the government out of money. Get the legal representation you need if you have been accused of lying to a government agent.
  • Foreign Corrupt Practices Act: Prosecutions and investigations under the FCPA are at an all-time high. I can help give you legal protection.

Helping People in Post-Conviction Matters

  • Federal sentencing issues: There is no parole in the federal criminal justice system. If convicted, you will serve 85 percent of your sentence at a minimum. However, I can help argue for a downward variance from federal sentencing guidelines.
  • Appeals: I will work hard to ensure any errors committed by the trial court are corrected at the appellate level.
