Aggressive, unflinching criminal defense for individuals and corporations in even the most high-profile and challenging cases.
For companies or individuals facing a criminal investigation or actual charges, the stakes are incredibly high. The government will aggressively prosecute you or your company, often times leading to prison. Your freedom is quite literally on the line. Hiring the right legal counsel can make all the difference.
Parker Hudson has a long record of success in complex white collar criminal matters, both in and out of court.
We fight hard to end investigations, keep companies viable, save professional licenses, and keep our clients out of prison.
Our approach includes:
- Negotiating with prosecutors and federal agents as early as possible in an investigation
- A definition of success that means no conviction, no prison sentence, no loss of license, no business demise
- Aggressively challenging the conduct of investigators (and any evidence produced during investigations)
- Strategically counselling our clients in responding to government inquiries, including requests to be interviewed by the FBI, SEC or the US Attorney's Office
- Fighting with the kind of passion that the threat of white collar criminal prosecution demands
Our White Collar Criminal Defense team includes former federal prosecutors who understand exactly how the government approaches white-collar criminal cases.
Much of our work is on behalf of individuals and smaller corporations in cases where courtroom trials and prison time are real possibilities. We have been able to help many of our clients overcome even the most intimidating evidence and charges. We have the gravitas and experience to go toe-to-toe with the federal government. While we have often been able to negotiate a reduction or dismissal of charges, we are also proud of our strong record of success as litigators in criminal trials.

- Appointed by the United States District Court, Northern District of Georgia, to defended a former employee of an automotive dealership against federal criminal charges alleging involvement in a "chop shop."

After presenting defense case, the jury found client not guilty on the remaining three counts, thereby completely exonerating the client. All of the other defendants in the case either pled guilty or were convicted at trial.
