Skilled San Francisco Corruption Allegations Defense Attorney

Preventing criminal prosecution against corruption allegations for our clients

In public and political life, reputation is everything — so when a client comes to us for help in defending against corruption allegations, we take an aggressive approach from the outset. Our focus is on dissuading the government from pressing criminal charges, and we have a strong record of success. Moreover, our experience is a broad as our reach; we have defended state and federal judges, elected officials and labor leaders from Oakland to Oahu, all with the goal of clearing their name and protecting their rights.

Accomplished defense against corruption charges from embezzlement to fraud

Corruption charges often revolve around white-collar crimes, but public employees and political officials work under a host of laws, procedures and regulations that can be inadvertently contravened in a number of ways. Just one example is the failure to make a financial disclosure at the appropriate time, which can put an official into a situation of non-compliance that has nothing to do with the misuse of public funds. Nonetheless, even an allegation of corruption or illegality can ruin a career and a reputation that took years to build.

As a veteran defense attorney, Doron Weinberg has protected the assets, careers and reputations of public and political figures facing corruption charges, including:

  • Allegations of fraud
  • Charges of embezzlement of public funds
  • Money laundering charges
  • Kickback and bribery allegations
  • Other RICO violations
  • Brown Act violations

We understand the importance of mounting a strong defense against these types of allegations and charges, especially the advantages of working with prosecuting agencies during the investigative phase — even before charges are filed. We can often prevent charges from being filed through aggressive advocacy and effective negotiation. We were recently successful in persuading the federal government not to press charges against State Senate President Pro Tem Don Perata. We have found that the right strategy is critical to the prosecution’s decision of what charges to file — or whether to file charges at all.
