The attorneys have a broad range of experience in internal investigative, white collar criminal defense, special matters, and civil litigation.

J. Terence O’Malley, DLA Piper US Managing Partner was quoted as saying in a press release at the firm’s website: “Chuck, Matt, Brad, George and their team add immediate depth on the West Coast to our already leading global white collar and government and internal investigations practice. They are highly regarded throughout Northern California and bring an unmatched level of notable experience and credentials to the firm.”

Previously, he served as an Assistant US Attorney in the Special Prosecutions Unit of the Los Angeles US Attorney’s Office and in the Sacramento US Attorney’s Office as Chief of the White Collar Crime Unit.
