Cyber Crime Lawyers in Cleveland, OH

Internet & Computer Crime Defense Lawyers

The federal government has a special interest in investigating and prosecuting crimes involving computers and the internet. Whether they concern long-standing crimes committed through a new means, such as fraud and identity theft, or high-tech offenses that specifically target one of the following:

  • Computer systems
  • Protected computers
  • Sensitive data
  • The government itself.

Cybercrimes warrant substantial federal government intervention and aggressive prosecution. They also create the potential for severe and life-altering penalties for anyone accused.

At Friedman Nemecek Long & Grant, L.L.C., our cyber crime lawyers have extensive experience representing individuals charged with a range of computer-related crimes, and have become recognized leaders in this emerging area of law. Because the federal government largely focuses on offenses involving computers and the internet, cyber litigation demands the insight of proven and resourceful cyber litigation lawyers with experience representing defendants in federal court.

  • Large fines & court-ordered restitution

    "Ian is the Best - Period!"
    I was facing life in prison for a crime I did not commit. After an initial conviction during a bench trial, Ian was able to get me a new trial based upon previously undiscovered evidence and I was found not guilty by a jury at the second trial almost immediately upon beginning deliberations. Ian saved my life.
