The partners at Finch McCranie, LLP have extensive experience in white collar criminal matters including cases of national significance.  They have defended businesses and individuals in cases alleging healthcare fraud, tax fraud, anti-trust violations, securities fraud, political corruption, Government program fraud, perjury, obstruction of justice and other white collar crimes.  Former clients include a U.S. Congressman, a former Governor, Fortune 500 Corporations, CEOs, doctors, lawyers and other business persons.

Experience & Reasoned Judgment

Having served as former federal prosecutors, our attorneys have experience, in particular, in the grand jury context.  Federal criminal cases are typically investigated by grand juries specifically empanelled to investigate federal crimes.  Having supervised federal grand jury investigators while serving as former federal prosecutors, our attorneys understand what is involved in the grand jury process and are able to guide the firm’s clients through the process.  Experience is probably the most important factor in properly representing either a business or an individual involved in a federal criminal investigation.

Experience and judgment go hand-in-hand in a white collar criminal defense case.  Having both prosecuted federal criminal cases and now having defended them for over two decades, our attorneys have acquired considerable experience that has lead to a mature and reasoned judgment.  Good judgment has to be acquired through experience and good judgment is what clients need when facing a federal criminal grand jury investigation.
