About me

I represent individuals and businesses in both civil and criminal litigation at the state and federal levels. My criminal practice emphasizes white collar criminal defense in the areas of theft of trade secrets, securities violations, embezzlement and fraud. In addition, I have successfully represented custom automotive manufacturers in the increasingly quasi criminal area of environmental law. My civil practice focuses on securities, business litigation, and real estate litigation.

Customer Reviews

I sued Mr. Picone and the other attorneys at this firm for Legal Malpractice, Fraud, Deceit, and Breach of Fiduciary Duties after they missed critical filing deadlines in the California Supreme Court. I would not recommend Mr. Picone.
