At the Law Offices of John D. Kirby, A.P.C., we defend individuals, government officials and government agencies against charges of bribery and other forms of public corruption. Judges, city council members, congressmen and women, and other government employees throughout California turn to our law firm when they are accused of illegally using their positions for financial gain. They turn to our law firm because they know that, when they retain us, they will be represented personally by John D. Kirby, a Cornell Law School educated attorney and former federal criminal prosecutor with more than 20 years of experience.
These cases typically involve government officials allegedly accepting bribes or kickbacks in exchange for granting favor to a contractor, vendor or other entity. These are complex cases that typically begin with an investigation phase. Parties being investigated should retain our services as soon as possible in order for us to mitigate damage to their political careers and to give us every opportunity to fight these white collar crime charges before they are even filed.
Our experience has taught us the importance of adapting quickly to changes in the law. For example, a recent case involving the "Honest Services" statute clarified the applicability of this anti-corruption statute for prosecutors nationwide, allowing them to assert federal charges for alleged bribery schemes. We have adapted our government corruption practice to this significant change in the law, and are prepared to protect your rights.
Defense of Non-Government Entities in Public Corruption Cases
In bribery cases, the government official accused of accepting the bribe is not the only one facing criminal charges. The individual or business that allegedly provided the bribe may also require strong criminal defense representation. We represent contractors, vendors and other parties accused of trying to grease the wheels for their benefit.
