Nebraska Criminal Defense Attorney
Thompson Law Office’s experienced white-collar criminal defense attorney in Omaha, Nebraska can represent individuals, corporate officers, businesses, and legal and financial professionals in grand jury and administrative enforcement proceedings, criminal trials, and internal investigations. Our Omaha criminal defense attorney has experience with white collar criminal defense matters, related complex civil and administrative litigation, corporate compliance programs, grand jury investigations, attorney grievance defense, Qui-Tam false claims, whistleblower representation, internal corporate investigations, trials, and related parallel administrative and civil litigation and appeals.
Businesses and individuals face increasingly aggressive government enforcement. Matters once addressed through civil or regulatory processes now often result in criminal investigations. Our Omaha criminal defense attorney brings particular strengths to bear on the representation of corporations or individuals who face criminal or other enforcement proceedings.
Effective representation in a criminal investigation or prosecution requires not only knowledge of criminal statutes and rules, but experience with the offices and agencies that enforce them. In the case of organizations, it also requires a lawyer who knows how to cooperate effectively, how to mount a vigorous defense and when to do one and not the other.

You may not know the Government is investigating you until you receive informal notice from a friend, co-worker or business associate who has been questioned by the Government about you and your activities. Or, you may have received a “target” letter in which you were formally noticed by the Government of the investigation and your status as a “target” of the investigation. The investigations can be conducted by the FBI, IRS, DOJ or the OIG of a Government Department.
