Mr. Winocur specializes in the defense of white collar and economic crimes for both corporate and individual clients spanning a broad range of industries. He has successfully defended clients at all stages of the investigative and enforcement process, through all manner of criminal, regulatory, and civil actions including securities violations, financial fraud, healthcare fraud, mail and wire fraud, environmental crimes, consumer protection violations, public corruption, and antitrust violations.

He earned his reputation by winning challenging defense verdicts in over 50 jury trials. He is best known for persistently achieving extraordinary results for his clients, with an unprecedented track record of attaining either complete dismissal of all charges or avoiding indictment at the outset.
