Those interactions can be crucial in determining an individual’s ability to defend him- or herself against accusations (whether false or otherwise). In this program, David Deitch—an experienced former prosecutor and long-time criminal defense attorney—explains the risks involved in dealing with law enforcement, and advises how each individual can and should assert his or her rights, and thereby protect his or her liberty and livelihood. David Deitch leads the White Collar Defense and Corporate Compliance practice at Berenzweig Leonard LLP—a boutique law firm located in northern Virginia just outside Washington DC. David is an experienced white collar trial lawyer who has tried more than 100 jury trials to verdict in federal and state courts around the nation. David’s diverse white collar background includes tenures as an Assistant District Attorney in New York City (1992-95), as an Associate Independent Counsel in the investigation of then-Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt (1998- 99), as Assistant United States Attorney in the District of Columbia (1999-2003), and as a Trial Attorney in the Counterterrorism Section of the National Security Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (2003-2007). During his tenure in the Counterterrorism Section, David was the Regional Anti-Terrorism Advisory Council Coordinator for the Western Region, responsible for coordinating investigations and prosecutions for 17 U.S. Attorney’s Offices—a task for which he was awarded the Assistant Attorney General’s Award for Advancing National Security in 2004. David was lead counsel on two of the Department of Justice’s most prominent counterterrorism trials and was the Department’s Domestic Terrorism Coordinator responsible for nationwide coordination of domestic terrorism investigations and prosecutions. Since leaving the government in 2007, David has represented individuals and companies in a wide variety of investigations and criminal, civil, and administrative trials and other proceedings.
