Brian Lennon specializes in criminal defense, particularly Health Care Fraud and other white collar and drug offenses, corporate internal investigations and compliance matters. As a federal prosecutor in Michigan and Virginia for 15 years and a trial attorney for the U.S. Department of Justice’s Civil Division, Brian has conducted hundreds of grand jury investigations, handled a variety of civil cases in U.S. District Courts throughout the country and tried nearly 70 criminal cases to verdict — from drunk driving to complex money-laundering schemes to murder. As Deputy Chief of the Criminal Division for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Michigan, Brian supervised the Health Care Fraud and computer-related crimes units, among others. He also spent four and a half years as a judge advocate for the U.S. Marine Corps, handling both civil and criminal matters.
As a prosecutor, Brian watched some of the brightest and best-intentioned individuals and companies make poor decisions when they became the subject of an administrative, civil or criminal investigation. As a private-practice lawyer, he’s determined to help his clients avoid those missteps. “I understand the real world implications of investigations and criminal prosecutions,” he says. “I fully appreciate the fact that your liberty and livelihood are at stake.”
In 2011, Brian was honored with the prestigious “Superior Performance as a Criminal Prosecutor” award from U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.
