Unique Familiarity with These Cases

When is a fundraising tactic illegal? When was a government contract illegally awarded and when was it simply awarded to the best candidate? Did an official's actions cross the line between “ugly” and “illegal?”

These are complicated questions, and the answers aren't always obvious. The state can come to the conclusion that certain actions were illegal, while there exists an entirely different, entirely legitimate interpretation of the relevant laws.

That's why it's so important for you to find an attorney with ample experience in public corruption and graft cases.

Bill Nettles spent more than five years as the US Attorney for the District of South Carolina. During that time, he dramatically shifted the focus of the office. When he took over, the office's public corruption unit was under-staffed and under-funded. But under Mr. Nettles' leadership, public corruption and graft became the office's highest priorities.

The unit was given the resources and the manpower it needed. And as a result, it became one the best regarded public corruption units in the country.

Bill Nettles oversaw that expansion and oversaw the cases that unit handled. He understands the complexities of these cases and knows the intricacies of all relevant laws.

It's impossible to overstate the importance of this knowledge. There's no substitute for real life, hands-on experience.
