White Collar Criminal Defense / IG & Internal Investigations

Mallon & McCool LLC represents individuals and entities at all stages of white-collar criminal litigation in federal, state, and local courts. One of the firm’s partners, Steven McCool, began his legal career as a Federal prosecutor with the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia.

Our services range from advising targets of grand jury investigations and witnesses who must appear before them, to guiding clients through the indictment, pretrial, and negotiation phases, to representing our clients at trial and on appeal. We represent targets and subjects of inspector general and other internal investigations aimed at uncovering or resolving allegations of officer, director, trustee, or employee misconduct, and we conduct internal investigations for entities seeking to remain untargeted.
