Bio

Annie is an experienced and trusted counselor who has represented individual and corporate clients in a variety of criminal and civil matters. Her white collar criminal defense practice includes trial and appellate matters, and she has argued cases in both federal and state appellate courts. Outside the courtroom, she has conducted multiple internal investigations throughout the United States and in Germany into potential violations of company policies, including those that implicate criminal wrongdoing. She has also represented individuals participating in government investigations, including investigations before the New Jersey Legislative Select Oversight Committee.  Annie also advises clients in civil matters that include issues of fraud and misrepresentations, such as qui tam actions under the New Jersey and Federal False Claims Acts and the Alien Tort Statute.  She has also defended clients in sensitive and high-stakes cases alleging sexual misconduct and related negligent hiring and supervision. Her clients come from a range of industries, including higher education, healthcare, manufacturing, law, and entertainment.

Annie also maintains an active pro bono practice.  She successfully argued an appeal from a trial court’s denial of a client’s petition for expungement, resulting in a published opinion from the New Jersey Appellate Division, and ultimately an expungement of her client’s records.  She has also appeared in family court on behalf of victims of domestic violence to pursue child support and custody issues.  Outside of her legal service, she is a board member for CASA of Union County, an organization that advocates on behalf of children in foster care.
