The Law Offices of Janet Costello L.L.C. focuses on the representation of individual and corporate clients facing criminal prosecutions and investigations, regulatory enforcement or scrutiny, civil litigation and those seeking advice regarding industry regulatory compliance in order to avoid exposure. This firm approaches each case recognizing that the commencement of proceedings against a client by the government poses a critical and defining moment in every client's life and that each case requires its own, individualized attention in order for justice to be served.
"Governments, both state and federal, quite properly spend vast sums of money to establish machinery to try defendants accused of crime. Lawyers to prosecute are everywhere deemed essential to protect the public's interest in an orderly society. Similarly, there are few defendants charged with crime, few indeed, who fail to hire the best lawyers they can get to prepare and present their defenses. That government hires lawyers to prosecute and defendants who have the money hire lawyers to defend are the strongest indications of the widespread belief that lawyers in criminal courts are necessities, not luxuries."
