spacer Coburn & Greenbaum PLLC

Criminal Defense

Since its founding, criminal defense has been a core part of Coburn & Greenbaum’s practice. The firm represents individuals and businesses in government and internal investigations, white-collar criminal litigation, general criminal litigation, and military proceedings. Coburn & Greenbaum enjoys a reputation for ethical and zealous representation of its clients. As a result of this well-deserved reputation, many of its clients are never charged nor fined by various governmental entities. Thus, they never must see the inside of a courtroom.

For those clients which must face trial, our attorneys have real world and trial experience covering a wide range of criminal charges and investigations – including securities fraud, insider trading, bribery, kickbacks, trade secret theft, tax fraud, healthcare fraud, bank fraud, antitrust violations, mail and wire fraud, obstruction of justice, perjury and false statements, environmental violations, money laundering, various Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization (RICO) charges, murder, spying, and various terrorism charges. Such experience provides our clients with the comfort of knowing that we have walked through the crucible of trial and won.

As former federal prosecutors and public defenders, we are trial lawyers that pull from a diversity of first-chair trial experience and complex federal grand jury experience. Many of our lawyers teach criminal defense courses and strategies to the metropolitan Washington, D.C. criminal defense bar.

Currently our lawyers are involved in the very first Military Commission case under the Obama Administration. The case, United States v. Khadr, is the first prosecution of a child soldier in the history of the country. The case involves litigation at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in the Military Commission, as well as litigation in the federal district court and appellate court in Washington, D.C.
