McAdoo Gordon & Associates represents clients in white collar criminal matters in both state and federal courts. Some of the firm's successful white collar crime cases are as follows:

McAdoo Gordon & Associates represented a former government employee who pled guilty in federal court to theft of money from the United States and money laundering. At sentencing, we demonstrated to the court that the client had no intent to harm the government, and used various character reference letters, performance evaluations, and other materials to show that the individual had supported the United States government in an outstanding fashion for many years. As a result, the judge gave a sentence of probation for this client even though the government had asked for many years of incarceration.

In another case, an individual was being sentenced for multiple felony larceny and receiving stolen property charges in Fairfax County, Virginia and Loudoun County, Virginia, after he plead guilty with another lawyer. At the sentencing hearing, McAdoo Gordon & Associates presented evidence showing that the client had medical conditions that impaired his abilities, and persuaded the judges in both counties to give the client probation only.

The firm represented an employee of a local fish market who was charged in federal court for purchasing illegal fish in violation of the federal Lacey Act. The firm secured a sentence of probation for the client, by presenting evidence that the client had little knowledge of the Lacey Act, and his good character and standing in the community.

McAdoo Gordon & Associates represented a government employee accused of theft of public money. The case was brought in federal court and we negotiated with the government to obtain a misdemeanor charge instead of a felony charge and secured a sentence of probation for the client.

McAdoo Gordon & Associates represented a client being investigated by the United States Attorney's Office in Maryland for allegations of theft. We successfully convinced the prosecutor that the client should be a witness, instead of being charged. The United States Attorney's Office decided not to prosecute the client.

The firm also represented a client charged with assisting an illegal gambling operation in Fairfax County, Virginia, and successfully persuaded the prosecutor to dismiss the case.
