Lawyers Council

The Crime Commission's work often involves complicated legal issues. The commission is very fortunate to have the assistance and guidance of our Lawyers Council which consists of highly experienced and well regarded attorneys who offer pro bono advice on a variety of issues.

From the private sector to public service, the Lawyers Council's combined experience encompasses a wide breadth: criminal justice policy, securities litigation, regulatory matters, public corruption, criminal law, fraud, and national and international terrorism cases.
