At The Blanch Law Firm, we provide clients with an impeccable level of criminal defense and white collar defense in all types of government investigations. Few defense law firms, if any, can offer clients the unique background, specific experience and successful track record that The Blanch Law Firm offers. Government investigations can arise for any number of reasons, but the results are always similar. Heavy prison time in federal penitentiaries, millions of dollars in fines and other severe penalties can cripple companies or individuals being investigated by federal or state government agencies. Our unique, results driven approach to criminal defense involves assigning multiple criminal defense attorneys to every government investigation. This assures a comprehensive defense, a 360 degree view of the case and the best results possible for your government investigation.
