About me

Carl Lietz is a federal criminal lawyer. His practice covers all phases of the federal criminal process, including pre-indictment investigations and negotiations, trials, sentencing hearings and appeals.  Although he enjoys working on any matter pending in federal court, in
the last several years, his practice has been devoted primarily to the
defense of complex, white-collar matters. Among others, he has
represented corporate officials on a whole range of federal matters, as
well as doctors facing fraud and over-prescribing charges.

    Mr. Leitz is an outstanding and excellent attorney. I would recommend anyone and everyone to him for his services. I have been practicing for 24 years as a judge, magistrate, law professor, private attorney, and prosecutor, and I learn from his answers on Avvo every day. Simply an exemplary attorney.

  • John Robert Lovell

    Carl is a top-notch lawyer. I have had the privilege of observing Carl at work for about ten years. Carl is always prepared to represent his clients zealously and effectively. Carl impressed me again last year when he and I made a presentation to a large group of lawyers-he had a tremendous grasp of the law. Carl puts his knowledge, passion, and experience to work for every client. I endorse this lawyer.
