Mr. Rosenblat’s preparation of False Claims Act cases is done to ensure that the case is put in the best positions to reach a successful outcome.

As a criminal defense lawyer, the firm has tried cases ranging from murder, bank robbery, violations of the Illinois Securities laws, drug trafficking, to DUI. Mr. Rosenblat served as a prosecutor and defense attorney while in the U.S. Army and as a prosecutor with the Illinois Attorney General’s Office where he tried cases throughout Illinois. The law firm has also represented individuals that have been the victims of police brutality or excessive force.
Mr. Rosenblat’s experience in defending those accused of crimes has shown that the best defense is often a good offense. Cases are often won or lost on the facts and the way they are presented to the Court. The first step for any good defense attorney is to gather all of the facts that will help defend the client. These are the facts that will support his defense and these facts are often obtained through subpoenas demanding the production of evidence. The second step in a good defense is trying to limit the evidence that can be used against the client. This step is often accomplished through the filing of a motion to suppress evidence that has been illegally obtained by the police in violation of the clients Fourth Amendment rights. Finally, the law and the facts are put together and presented to the prosecutors or the court in a light most favorable to the defendant. Since about 90% of all criminal cases are guilty pleas a defendant should not underestimate the importance of good mitigation and extenuation. The firm always seeks the best outcome for its client whether that means taking the case to trial or seeking a negotiated plea.Healthcare Investigations and Audit Defense
