We take extra measures to ensure that we listen to your needs and develop a master plan to tackle any obstacle in the best way possible. We believe in transparency so we will often provide a flat fee structure designed to control skyrocketing litigation costs and protect your bottom line (you’ll never see a “surprise” bill from us).

We bring decades of investigative, trial, and appellate experience, representing a wide range of clients charged with crimes ranging from homicide and sexual offenses to sophisticated fraud schemes before state and federal courts. We also advocate for clients challenging “Red Notices” before Interpol, those facing extradition to the United States, and advise on laws impacting how business is conducted abroad (including the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act). As part of our commitment to serving the community, we devote a significant amount of resources to pro bono representation, particularly on behalf of children and those who have been wrongfully convicted.
We are uniquely positioned to provide immediate assistance when a crisis erupts. Founder & Managing Partner, Ignacio Alvarez, is an honorably retired Major of one of the nation’s largest law enforcement units and has well-established contacts and cordial relationships with law enforcement institutions on a local, state, and federal level. We focus on preventing legal problems by getting involved at the earliest stage (before charges are filed or police involvement ensues), and, when necessary, dealing with them as quickly as possible to minimize the potential risk of prosecution while safeguarding your privacy, liberty, and reputation as much as possible. We provide a level of interaction unmatched by traditional law firms by committing to our strict policy of rapid response (meaning we’re here for you any time, any day of the week).
