White Collar Criminal Defense
Stein Mitchell Muse & Cipollone LLC represents corporations and individuals, both domestic and international, in a wide range of white collar criminal matters, including grand jury and administrative enforcement proceedings, criminal trials, and internal investigations.
Our practice group boasts former federal prosecutors, public defenders, and congressional staffers, several of whom are members of the American College of Trial Lawyers and/or professors teaching trial practice at Georgetown University Law Center.
Our lawyers have been key players in high-profile criminal investigations for over 50 years, including Watergate, Iran Contra, Ill Winds, and the FBI files case, to name a few. While we are often involved in criminal cases of notoriety, we have also successfully kept many of our clients out of the public eye when necessary, avoiding indictments and civil penalties.
The key to our success is endless preparation. Our firm houses an experienced team of in-house investigators, including former police detectives and District of Columbia Federal Public Defender’s Office investigators. Our lawyers and investigators work closely together to conduct comprehensive factual investigations culminating in winning strategies for our clients.
Our clients have an excellent track record of avoiding criminal charges and civil penalties. Our skilled team of litigators has tried hundreds of cases in state and federal courts. Each of our attorneys is a trial lawyer, and we are well positioned to manage and represent our clients at every step of their proceedings.
