White Collar Defense
and Internal Investigations

Lawrence S. Middleton has successfully investigated and tried some of the most complex criminal cases litigated in federal court. As an Assistant United States Attorney, he obtained guilty verdicts against both individuals and corporations for violations of federal criminal statutes prohibiting contract procurement fraud, mail fraud, wire fraud, bank fraud, tax fraud, the illegal importation of goods in violation of United States Customs laws, including anti-dumping laws, money laundering, and trafficking in counterfeit goods, among others.

While serving as Chief of the Criminal Division of the Los Angeles United States Attorney’s Office, where he supervised almost 200 federal prosecutors, he worked with the Department of Justice to obtain just results for individuals and for major corporate entities accused of crimes ranging from mail and wire fraud schemes, to securities fraud, to violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. Having spent years building iron-clad cases for prosecution, Lawrence knows how complex fraud cases are developed, and what it takes to defend them. He not only has the experience and skill needed to protect your rights in court, he is also well positioned to lead internal investigations to find and correct problems before they become the subject of a criminal investigation or a civil lawsuit, and to stave off criminal charges once an investigation has started.
