Criminal Law

The DarrowEverett Criminal Law Practice Group represents individuals and corporations in criminal matters in both Federal and State Courts across the region. Often, we are retained by clients once they learn that they are being investigated by Federal or State authorities, including grand jury investigations. At this stage, we devote our efforts to resolving the government’s concerns while convincing them not to initiate prosecution.

Many of the firm’s most significant victories are the ones that are not publicized, i.e., instances where we have convinced prosecutors not to bring criminal charges against our client. We recognize that in many circumstances, the disclosure of an investigation can result in significant harm to a client. As such, we strive to resolve matters without adverse publicity for our clients.

While it is not always possible to prevent criminal prosecutions, we will always be prepared to tenaciously defend our clients at trial and on appeal. Our goal is to provide the most effective representation possible in order to maximize the benefits to our clients and protect their interests. Our team includes a former federal prosecutor with extensive experience in white-collar crime cases, including both investigations and trials.  In addition, our team is experienced in the following:

  • Mail and Wire Fraud
  • Bank Fraud
  • Health Care Fraud and Abuse
  • Tax Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Securities Fraud
  • Environmental Crimes
  • Medicare and Medicaid Fraud
  • Public Corruption
  • Grand Jury Investigations
  • Administrative Investigations





We have committed ourselves to assisting our clients in making well-informed, productive and ultimately successful decisions on all issues that come before them.

We take pride in on our ability to provide each client with the attention to detail and high level of service that their transactions require, while at the same time providing practical and business-oriented advice and solutions.

  • Investment in Opportunity Zones

    Opportunity Zones

    In December 2017, President Trump signed The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law enacting a national Opportunity Zone program designed to provide significant real estate and other investors significant federal tax incentives to invest in 8,700 historically distressed, state-designated neighborhoods throughout the United States. Specifically, the federal tax incentives provided through the Opportunity Zone program may permit an investor not only to defer present taxation on any of its currently realized and recognized capital gains, but also to reduce the actual amount of capital gains ultimately realized in the future. In addition, for certain investments held for more than 10 years, any and all gains on such investment amounts will be 100% tax-free for federal income tax purposes, to the extent initially comprised of deferred capital gains.
