Practice Areas

David Bigeleisen specializes in defending people accused of all types of crimes. His objective is always the same – to gain the best results for each client.

White Collar Crime is an illegal act characterized by deceit, concealment or violation of trust. The person accused of a white collar crime needs a lawyer who knows the law that applies to the crime and who has the patience to go through all the records and information that apply to the case in order to sort out the essential elements. This information can then be used to find the soft spots and defects in the government’s case or witnesses. Contrary to the way television portrays criminal defense attorneys as glamorous, the work is laborious and requires knowledge and patience.

Types of White Collar Crime

  • Securities Fraud
  • Bank Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Government Fraud
  • Mail Fraud
  • Wire Fraud
  • Internet Crimes
  • Perjury
  • Mortgage Fraud
  • Immigration Fraud

Sex Crimes.

More than 50% of the accusations of child molesting are unfounded. It is extremely difficult to know what really happened. It is vital to gather all evidence related to physical findings to determine and make an in-depth analysis. When a child is interviewed over and over again, the description of what happened often changes. It is important to take all versions and read them while listening to the recorded interview in order to see how they evolved. Sometimes the next step is to ask a child psychology expert for an opinion. It is important to conduct an independent investigation of all witnesses involved. In one case, the investigation found a neighbor who had seen the husband leave for work and the wife’s boyfriend arrive at the house a few minutes later each day. This information cast doubt on the accusations and the accused man was given probation.

In the case of rape, you want an expert to look at physical findings and make an independent determination of the evidence and whether it was indicative of rape.

Types of Sex Cases

Vehicular Cases are among the most complex cases a lawyer can handle. It is vital to understand chemistry, toxicology and human behavior. It is equally important to understand the biomechanics for field sobriety testing and how police behavior in conducting the tests could affect the tests’ outcome. Were the tests done adequately? Were the record keeping requirements for various chemical tests followed? The lawyer must know how to put it all together.

Types of Vehicular Cases

  • Driving Under the Influence
  • Vehicular Manslaughter
  • Driving Under the Influence and Causing Injury
  • Reckless Driving
  • Driving With a Suspended or Revoked License

Violent Crimes.

Defending violent crimes requires knowing the law and knowing the science. Many times the authorities will rely on scientific evidence or pseudo-scientific evidence. Examples of scientific evidence are DNA identification, paint chips and chemistry.

Examples of pseudoscience include handwriting analysis and fingerprint identification. Knowing the science and how to test it is critical. Mr. Bigeleisen grew up with prominent scientists. He can identify the very best experts throughout the country. Because of a lifetime of exposure the very best experts are only a phone call away.

  • Murder

  • Vehicular Manslaughter
  • Mayhem
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Spousal Abuse
