U.S. Department of Justice
Inside the U.S. Department of Justice
The United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) enforces the federal laws and defends the interests of the United States. The DOJ also seeks to ensure the fair and impartial administration of justice for all Americans.
The DOJ Tax Division prosecutes both civil and criminal cases involving allegations of tax non-compliance. The Tax Division works hand in hand the IRS to enforce the nation’s tax laws. Additionally, the Tax Division collaborates with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), Federal Trade Commission (“SEC”), Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) and other federal agencies to maintain integrity and transparency in the nation’s financial markets.
The DOJ Criminal Division is prosecutes fraud and other economic, or “white collar,” crimes. Attorneys from the Department of Justice attorneys also represent the U.S. government in actions before the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and in U.S. District Courts, U.S. Courts of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court. These are skilled litigators who bring the full resources of the United States Government to bear upon the matter at hand.
Washington Experience for New Jersey Clients!
Whether you are being investigated by a Federal agency, prosecuted for a criminal offense by the Department of Justice, or even if you have been served a subpoena as a witness in a Federal case in which you are not the Defendant, there is no substitute for effective counsel to help you prepare your statement or testimony. Being questioned or deposed by Government attorneys can be intimidating and emotionally draining. A witness or suspect who is misunderstood or presents poorly can end up facing further legal troubles. Wouldn’t it be reassuring to have a former Government attorney on your side?
