Dear Visitor,

You have a choice when it comes to selecting the right lawyer for your case. I am honored you are considering me to help you with your important matter. My prime objective is to treat all actual, former, and prospective clients fair and with dignity. This respect explicitly extends to law enforcement and opposing parties. I strongly believe that zealous advocacy and ethics are not mutually exclusive.

Your Expectations.
I don’t care what brings you to me, or what you may have done wrong. I don’t judge. I offer my help. I have represented people from all walks of life, people with diverse and foreign backgrounds, companies (big and small), and many good people — including current federal prosecutors, federal agents, and police officers. Everyone can make a mistake. Unfortunately, I cannot help everyone at any point. Our firm has to reject about 20 – 30 cases per week. If you turn out to be one of them, I sincerely apologize. If you do become our client, I promise, I will be diligent, accessible, and responsive.

My Expectations.
My main expectations are twofold. First, I expect you to be truthful. My representation is conditioned on your obligation to completely, truthfully, timely, and accurately disclose all facts relevant and pertinent to the case. If a client misrepresents material facts to me, I will withdraw. See United States v. Johnson, 2008 WL 2060597 (E.D.Va. May 15, 2008) and Qualcomm, Inc. v. Broadcom Corp., 2008 WL 66932 (S.D.Cal. Jan 7, 2008). Second, I expect you to follow my instructions and the law. I have a zero tolerance policy for attempts of obstruction of justice (e.g. deletion or holding back evidence) or money laundering (e.g. hiding assets from the government), to name only two examples.

Sound good to you?

Great, give me a call today and let’s explore how we can work together.

Sincerely,

Dr. Nick Oberheiden
