Criminal Defense

Our cases range from serious traffic violations, to drug, marijuana, fraud, tax, environmental, antitrust, securities, immigration, customs, arms export control, health care, child pornography, Food and Drug Act, and other serious crimes, including death penalty cases. We have handled the most complicated type of "white collar" cases seen in the American courtroom. Because of our location on the Canadian border, we are especially aware of the challenges in representing non-citizens accused of crimes.

Autism Criminal Justice

No law firm in North America has more experience or success in defending young men with Autism Spectrum Disorder of the type presented in Asperger's Syndrome in  criminal investigations involving inappropriate online or offline sexual behavior, such as viewing child pornography.  Such effort requires very specialized knowledge of the law.  It requires even more speciallized knowledge of the role that ASD plays in creating severe deficits in social learing which make it hard or impossible for individuals to appreciate how their behavior was wrong or violated the law.
