Criminal Law

The Criminal Law practice group of Murchison & Cumming, LLP encompasses three sections: White Collar Crime, General Criminal and Corporate/Government Compliance. We represent corporations and individuals in white collar criminal investigations and proceedings from pre-indictment investigations to trial, including matters involving allegations of mail and wire fraud, money laundering, asset forfeiture (civil and criminal), extortion, embezzlement and bribery.  

Consultation with an attorney prior to indictment is crucial as white collar investigations can last anywhere from six months to two years before an indictment is issued by a grand jury or judge.  Our attorneys are available to consult on white collar criminal issues at each stage of the criminal process and are experienced at negotiating a lesser charge or sentence, investigating government witnesses and preparing clients for interviews with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Justice or grand jury proceedings. 

With the recent upsurge in white collar criminal proceedings and investigations, immediate action is of the utmost importance in protecting corporations and individuals from high-exposure litigation and potential liabilities.  Murchison & Cumming provides the strategic and swift response necessary to achieve a successful outcome.  Most recently, the firm obtained dismissal of a twenty-count criminal indictment alleging mail fraud, conspiracy to commit mail fraud and aiding and abetting, in the District Court of Nevada.
