Mr. Stahl has represented all types of high profile cases from Dias Kadyrbayev, the college student from Kazakhstan who was charged with obstruction in the Boston Marathon Bombing aftermath case; to rabbis charged with kidnapping and money laundering; to a former police officer charged with murder; and a pharmacist charged in connection with a massive internet-based pharmacy business.  Mr. Stahl has been featured on the Fox News Channel, CNN, CBS Evening News and other print, and broadcast media across the globe.

When your reputation and freedom is in jeopardy, you need to know that your attorneys not only have the experience, determination, skill and time to devote to your case; but that they will aggressively pursue every available defense.  Results matter.  We have a proven record of success that has time and again shown our skills as aggressive advocates for those targeted by law enforcement.
