AV Ratings
            Criminal Investigation’s conviction rate is one of the highest in federal law enforcement. Not only do the courts hand down substantial prison sentences, but those convicted must also pay fines, civil taxes and penalties. CI’s conviction rate is one of the highest in federal law enforcement.

            Since CI’s inception in 1919 to the present, the conviction rate for Federal tax prosecutions has never fallen below 90 percent.  This is a record of success that is unmatched in Federal law enforcement.

                                                                The early involvement of experienced legal counsel can be the key to a successful result
