Proven results on complex cases

In any civil or criminal case, the higher the stakes become, the more experienced, intricate and detailed your representation must be. Attorney Bill Fanciullo has been working on highly complex federal civil and criminal cases since his days as an Assistant U.S. Attorney. His 36-year background includes prosecution and defense of white collar crime, tax evasion, criminal immigration-related violations, public corruption, money laundering, obstruction of justice, false statements, drug cases, criminal conspiracies and many other matters. He’s successfully handled complex civil suits, including civil RICO and cases involving grave injuries. He has handled “parallel proceedings” investigations and prosecutions, involving criminal, civil and administrative aspects, for example, with a federal “False Claims Act” component.  He’s a skilled lawyer-investigator, able to assess allegations and ascertain facts – sometimes hidden in mountains of documents. He’s a gifted tactician, who can deftly maneuver in every phase of a case, from pre-trial motions through trial and to appeal. He handles all aspects of investigations and discovery, including subpoenas, interrogatories and depositions, and forcefully negotiates with prosecutors for reduction in charges and for immunity and puts forth the most compelling position should the matter require sentencing. But mostly, he’s a gifted trial attorney, able to distill a daunting volume of detail into a simple, compelling narrative.  Although “creativity” is not a word usually associated with litigation attorneys, it is, as appropriate, for Bill Fanciullo, who will seek out the best uses of evidence and associated arguments.
