Janet I. Levine
Ranked among the nation’s leading lawyers in white collar defense and government investigations, Janet I. Levine is a trial and appellate attorney with extensive experience handling litigation involving securities, health care and tax fraud, and public corruption matters.
She has a record of winning first-of-a-kind trials and handling ground-breaking and high-profile matters, including the rare complete dismissal of a federal conspiracy and anti-kickback/Medicare fraud indictment that ended a multi-defendant prosecution of medical doctors in a premier spine and pain management practice.
Throughout her career, she has successfully represented corporations, politicians, judges, directors, officers, executives and licensed professionals in varied industries. Ms. Levine brings extensive trial, grand jury, and pretrial experience, as well as extensive pre-filing resolutions of difficult and sensitive matters, including litigating grand jury matters.
Ms. Levine is one of the few lawyers to ever try a Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) case, which resulted in the dismissal of all charges against her client based on prosecutorial misconduct.
Her accomplishments have won her accolades and honors, including two California Lawyer Attorney of the Year (CLAY) awards and recognition from the National Law Journal, Daily Journal, Benchmark Litigation, Global Investigations Review and Los Angeles Business Journal. The prestigious Chambers USA ranks her among California’s top litigators for White Collar Crime & Government Investigations and has described Ms. Levine as a “preeminent authority on white-collar litigation defense” who “is regularly called upon to advise on high-stakes cases.” Ms. Levine is also a Fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers (ACTL), one of the premier legal associations in North America.
