The U.S. Attorney's Report to the District

Prosecuting complex frauds and other white collar crimes is one of the things that this office does best.  We prosecute a wide variety of sophisticated criminal schemes, and those cases often involve skilled and highly educated defendants such as accountants, bankers, doctors, and members of our own profession.

Attorneys can do tremendous good for society -- seeking justice for their clients, righting wrongs, supporting the weak against the strong, defending the environment.  But a license to practice law can also be put to more nefarious use.  Lawyers can use their experience and expertise to implement difficult-to-detect offenses, to aid and conceal criminal conduct, and to give a veneer of legitimacy to fraud schemes.  We have not been reluctant to hold attorneys accountable for such conduct.
