Ms. Culotta’s practice focuses on criminal defense, business crimes, and internal investigations.
I have led several internal investigations in the United States and foreign countries, from both sides of the investigation. These investigations have uncovered fraud, corruption and deception on the part of rogue employees or subsidiaries. I have assisted my clients in being pro-active to root out problems from within and protecting them from elements that might have financial or regulatory consequences.
I appeared on TruTV (formerly Court TV) to comment on the trial of State v. Houston, Roane Criminal No. 13404A and B (allegations of a double homicide entailing the death of two police officers).
While a Federal Prosecutor with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, I provided advice as to legal issues and possible ramifications of policy decisions on complex cases, national and international in scope, arising in the enforcement of the criminal provisions of environmental statutes. Further, I served as a national consultant on criminal enforcement of environmental statutes, primarily responsible for reviewing EPA's national and international criminal enforcement activities. Lastly, I represented the criminal enforcement branch of EPA, providing assistance to senior agency officials in preparation of Congressional testimony.
