The careers of public officials depend on their image. With a history of handling high-profile cases, the Fort Lauderdale law office of Bruce L. Udolf, P.A., places great emphasis on protecting its clients’ good reputations in the face of criminal challenges. We understand — even when the government is persuaded not to bring an indictment — that negative publicity related to public corruption allegations can destroy the professional and personal lives of our clients. Because of that, we take all measures possible under the law to minimize the impact of a criminal investigation or indictment.
Our founding attorney, Bruce Udolf, is known and respected for professional handling of high-profile white collar crime defense cases. Prior to becoming a defense attorney, Bruce served as Chief of the Public Corruption/Integrity section for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in South Florida for more than five years. In that capacity, he tried and supervised some of the country’s most significant corruption cases. He went on to serve as Associate Independent Counsel in Washington, D.C., during the Whitewater investigation.
Since then, he has successfully defended numerous high-profile criminal cases throughout the United States. He is well-equipped to represent clients accused of misuse of funds, extortion and bribery, fraud on the public, accepting kickbacks, money laundering and embezzlement.
Reducing the Impact of Public Corruption Charges
Mr. Udolf’s clients have included high-ranking public officials who, in addition to facing criminal charges, face long-term collateral damage to their careers as well. In these cases, even with a legal victory, long-term career damage is a real possibility. Accordingly, a broader strategy is needed — a plan that addresses possible negative consequences outside of the courtroom as well as inside the courtroom walls.
At our South Florida law firm, our goal is not just to avoid a conviction, but to protect our clients’ careers and minimize the stresses that come with criminal charges. To do so, we use years of experience and in-depth knowledge of criminal law, procedure, media and public policy.
We navigate clients through the entire process until all the dust is settled. Acting as an advocate and counselor, Mr. Udolf works closely with clients throughout the process. He is directly accessible to the politicians, business leaders and professionals he represents.
In public corruption cases, there is a reverse twist to an old saying, specifically — no publicity is good publicity. Our Fort Lauderdale law firm often adheres to this principle. We take action to keep our criminal defense clients out of the public eye, working to disassociate them from negative publicity. To accomplish our clients’ goals, we use savvy media strategies that have been developed through years of experience in Florida state and federal courts.
