Justin C. Danilewitz
The storm clouds of a looming enforcement action, however the clouds take shape -- by search warrant, subpoena, "target letter," or an early morning knock on the door from agents -- must be taken seriously, and require the guidance and navigation of experienced and able counsel. Justin C. Danilewitz draws upon his experience as a former federal prosecutor, as well as his defense of individuals and entities, to conduct internal investigations, zealously defend against civil and criminal enforcement actions, and respond to whistleblower complaints and false claims ("qui tam") suits.
Justin has extensive experience appearing before judges and juries, both at trial as well as in sentencings, plea hearings, bail hearings, and other proceedings in federal court. He has also written a wide range of trial and appellate briefs on both criminal and civil issues, some of them before the U.S. Supreme Court. Justin and his partner Chris Hall (along with other leading criminal defense counsel) successfully led the briefing (see here and here) and oral argument in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court relating to a matter of international interest -- the Pennsylvania Attorney General's grand jury investigation into the Catholic Church -- which resulted in two landmark precedential opinions (here and here) in favor of their clients, protecting the constitutional right to reputation in Pennsylvania. The Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers recognized Justin and Chris for their successful efforts in this matter with the prestigious Alan Jay Josel Award for Advocacy. Justin was also named to The Legal Intelligencer's 2019 Power Players list.
