The Right Skills And Tools For Federal Court

Federal charges are more complicated, commonly involving a great deal of electronic discovery. At LaRene & Kriger, we have our own forensic software, that helps us analyze and challenge such evidence to aid in our client’s defense. We also use private investigators and outside experts. In a prominent money laundering case, federal prosecutors agreed to drop the charges against our client, based on the findings of our forensic accountant.

The rules are different in federal court and the government’s lawyers are very good. Our attorneys are uniquely equipped for this challenge. Deday LaRene and Mark Kriger, each have more than 40 years of experience and they do their own legal research, which is practically unheard of for trial lawyers of their caliber. We have no law clerks or paralegals. Every motion, every legal brief and every defense strategy is personally crafted by our attorneys, and their resulting track record of favorable outcomes is no coincidence.
