Civil Litigation

We represent clients in all manner of disputes — business and personal.  We represent clients in criminal and civil litigation in Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, and on limited occasion, New York. Our skilled attorneys have handled a wide variety of cases, ranging from representation of whistle-blowers, individuals accused of misconduct by federal and local authorities, to prosecution of claims in which hundreds of millions of dollars were in dispute.  We also have extensive experience with banking and regulatory compliance, federal consumer protection, contract disputes, estate and trust disputes, and professional misconduct by accountants, attorneys, appraisers and title companies. We have investigated allegations of misconduct by prosecutors, handled mortgage fraud cases, fraudulent mortgage flips, bid and contract fraud, and pay-to-play schemes.

We have appeared in matters involving the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Department of Justice, the U.S. Agency for International Development, the National Credit Union Administration (federal credit unions), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (state chartered banks), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (national banks and federal thrifts), the Office of Thrift Supervision (merged into the OCC), the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (state chartered banks), the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, FinCEN, the Internal Revenue Service, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Special Inspector General for Troubled Asset Programs (SIGTARP), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  We have particular knowledge of the operations of both Government Sponsored Enterprises, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, as well as their federal regulator, FHFA.  We have successfully brought multimillion dollar consumer protection cases involving thousands of victims.  We have successfully pursued claims against law firms, lawyers, accountants, real estate appraisers, settlement agents, insurance corporations, title companies, and nationally chartered and state chartered banks of all sizes.  We believe the “P” in CPA stands for public trust.

If you need resolution for a personal, financial, criminal, regulatory, enforcement, or compliance matter, we believe timely intervention with the appropriate federal or state regulator is key.  If it is too late for timely intervention, we can assist you in mitigating your damages through arbitration, mediation, or criminal or civil courts.  We have flexible schedules and can meet you within or outside of normal work hours and at a location of your choice.
