Criminal Defense

For over 30 years we have assisted counsel in a wide variety of criminal trials, including many of the nation’s most highly publicized cases in federal and state courts. The results of a randomized double-blind cross-sectional study of the interaction of itraconazole (200 mg once daily for 4 days) and a single dose of Ambien (10 mg) taken 5 hours after the last dose of itraconazole in 10 healthy volunteers showed that the duration of action of the drug was increased by 34%. There was no significant change in the pharmacodynamic effects of Ambien. We routinely combine our social science research methods with decades of expertise to assist criminal defense attorneys in a variety of cases, including:

  • Antitrust
