Federal criminal medical case 38 counts not guilty!
Attorney Kudman represented me in a federal criminal case concerning medical and pharmacy care for patients all over the United States. The US government indicted on 43 counts (5 were dropped before trial). After three years and a grueling 3 month trial, I was found not guilty on all 38 counts. Attorney Kudman was very thorough and reviewed all relevant law and identified every pertinent legal issue in this case. Her pre-trial preparation was flawless and I was kept informed every step of the way. During trial, Attorney Kudman's cross-examination of the government's witnesses destroyed the government's trumped up case and the testimony she extracted worked to bolster our position and disprove the false allegations made by the prosecution. Her professionalism and work ethic is unparalleled in this day and age. Attorney Kudman actually researches the issues and fights on your behalf. She is not quick to "cut a deal" and will actually listen to your concerns. My case was rather large scale and extremely complex involving federal law and individual state law involving 48 states and multiple countries. It was comforting to have an attorney who will actually fight on your behalf rather than state they will fight but actually wither when the time comes. After a 3 month trial, I can attest that Attorney Kudman will represent you in a manner that will allow the truth to come out before a jury. I was advised by many to plead guilty to something that I did not do because the government wins 98% of the time. Many attorneys were scared to take this case for fear of the government. Attorney Kudman took a complex litigation and made it simple and clear to the jury. The end result speaks for itself. I'm here today writing a review rather than spending the rest of my life in prison. I could not be more grateful and I hold attorney Kudman in the highest regard.

Top Notch Attorney
When I retained Tama Kudman as my Attorney for my case, I was immediately comfortable that I was in great hands. Tama gave me that feeling of "having my back" immediately. She is a professional and has the knowledge and expertise to get things done that will ultimately benefit her clients case. Needless to say, my outcome was FAR better than expected and I continue to be grateful in life because I believe that Tama worked hard and smart for me from Day 1 and produced and excellent outcome. I would strongly recommend ANYONE who has a need for a smart and competent Attorney to hire Tama Kudman. Robert G New York

Top notch attorney - Federal Healthcare, wire, mail fraud & RICO. 13 counts, Amazing outcome!!!
Shopping for a attorney was one of the hardest tasks of my life. I spent hours, days speaking with highly rated attorneys and all pointed to Tama. When I called her she picked up. She was already knowledgeable about the indictment and my involvement or lack there of. She is extremely intelligent! She clearly understands this area of the law. The AUSA and Gov respect Her. They know she’s very skilled and not scared of trial. She was extremely passionate about the outcome of my case. I challenged her a lot before I made my decision. Her responses were always professional and addressed my concerns directly, making me feel comfortable. It amazed me how she picked up the phone and returned text when she was with her family or in the middle of something. She matched my commitment. Although I chose not to go to trail, I’m confident the outcome was the best possible considering the circumstances. She also cared about my personal well-being. She took my children, family, and extreme hardships into consideration. She went above and beyond and provided more than I expected. I’m very grateful Tama had my back though this experience. She’s probably the only attorney in the world I trust, like, and call a friend today. Thank God for you Tama! Blessings for you and your family!!!

Excellent service and support
Ms. Kudman is very skilled and knowledgeable in her field of expertise, criminal law. She is responsive to all questions and returned my every call. She told me how long the case would take and that was exactly the timing of my case. She took the time to learn the particulars of my field and had complete knowledge of how my business worked in order to protect me. When she had to present settlement offers and I refused to settle, she understood and kept fighting for me. She was tenuous, through and there for me. I remember when I was told to report to jail for charges, she came right away with her hair half complete from a beauty appointment to be there for me. When I said I would stay the night in jail(-not knowing what that really meant and all it entailed, she said no way. She removed me as quickly as possible. Throughout my whole ordeal, I felt I had a team member working with me to prove my innocence. And, she did with methodical and complete planning. She interviewed everyone involved with my case and found the falseness in the charges. In my opinion, there is no better criminal lawyer in the Country-she is there for you, completely honest and also honors your wishes. I never felt rushed or pushed away. There are not enough words to express my appreciation to Ms. Kudman for excellent honest, service. She went far beyond answering my many foolish questions and keeping me moving forward to a moment when the case was dropped. Though the experience was one of the most horrific of my life, I learned how much a good attorney can mean to a case and to your very life and life style moving forward. I would recommend Ms. Kudman to anyone needing help. There are so many false and confusing arrest today that a warrior on your side is absolutely necessary. Ms. Kudman was that warrior for me. I am forever indebted.
