  • Client Focus
    Unlike the big firms, our partners do not simply meet and greet then hand you over to an associate. We deal directly with the client and represent them at every phase of their case.
  • Innovation and Legal Trends
    BK&B is constantly monitoring legal trends and litigating novel legal issues. We are always evaluating the pulse of the Supreme Court and diagnosing what archaic legal theories can be overturned. From litigating cell phone privacy issues and computer encryption code access to synthesizing hundreds of thousands of documents in business crime prosecutions, we truly are a modern criminal law firm.
  • Experienced Litigators
    Our lawyers have litigated hundreds of cases ranging from complex financial crimes and narcotics conspiracies to homicides, sexual assaults and oui's. We are specialized in criminal trial work and investigate cases aggressively and pursue leads and defenses to the advantage of our clients.
