I am a solo practitioner and specialize in cross-border money laundering investigations and defense. My practice is increasingly focused on alleged financial fraud involving cryptocurrency exchanges and payments processors. I am well versed in Russian law and the movement of assets within Russia and across its borders. Although I am not Russian, I earned my first law degree at a Russian university in Moscow and then attended Harvard Law School. I am licensed to practice in New York and California.
My passion project is my recently launched elder fraud advisory practice. I advise clients on how to identify, stop, and protect themselves against elder financial exploitation. I am especially interested in finding ways to protect vulnerable adults from gift card scams.
I am a Certified Fraud Examiner and Certified Senior Advisor. I live and work in New York City, where I volunteer as an elder fraud educator serving English, Spanish, and Russian-speaking communities.
