Our new name and logo reflect our growth and success as a firm. Our high standards for handling complex, white-collar defense cases remain the same. We utilize cutting-edge computer litigation support as well as a team of lawyers and paralegals to develop all legal and factual defenses. White-collar criminal defense can involve hundreds of thousands of documents and requires not only the latest computer technology, but also the experience to analyze the information and utilize technology to present a persuasive defense. 

In September 2016, Vincent A. Citro joined the firm and is now a partner. After spending almost 14 years in the U.S. Department of Justice, assigned to positions in Washington, D.C., and throughout Florida, Vince brings with him an extensive experience in national security, tax fraud, cybercrimes, intellectual property, public corruption, drug trafficking, firearms charges, and child exploitation offenses.

We are proud to highlight our service and expertise. Mark and Vince are both board-certified as criminal trial specialists by the Florida Bar and the National Board of Trial Advocacy (NBTA). Less than 1% of all Florida attorneys acquire the Florida Bar certification in criminal law, and even fewer are certified by the NBTA. Certification requires passing a written examination, completing a substantial number of trials, and being considered ethical, professional, and an expert criminal defense lawyer by their peers.

 Both Mark and Vince are former federal prosecutors now dedicated to providing a vigorous and experienced criminal defense for their clients facing criminal investigation and prosecution. They know how prosecutors operate, how they think, and they employ their specialized perspective on the defense side to champion their clients and get results.

Most citizens have no experience with the criminal justice system.   The unfortunate reality is that our justice system is not perfect. Police and prosecutors are human and can make mistakes that result in innocent people going to prison.  Our criminal trial experience in federal and state courts, combined with our commitment to vigorously defend our client’s liberty, warranted our recognition in Best Lawyers in America© for 2019 for General Criminal Defense and White-Collar Criminal Defense.
