Dennis Boyle is a former Navy Judge Advocate, First Assistant District Attorney, Special Assistant United States Attorney and, most recently, a partner with a national AmLaw 100 law firm.  He is the recipient of many awards, including an American Bar Association award for Professional Merit.  He has the highest ranking available—AV—from Martindale Hubble and has been recognized multiple times as a Super Lawyer in both Pennsylvania and the District of Columbia.  Over the past twenty-five years, Dennis has tried more than 200 jury trials to verdict.

As a seasoned litigator, Dennis has won numerous high profile cases but understands that avoiding charges or litigation is frequently the best outcome for his clients.  Much of his practice involves conducting investigations for clients and the representation of individuals in “Internal Investigations” undertaken by corporate outside counsel.  With more than twenty-five years investigating, prosecuting and representing people charged with fraud or fraud-type conduct, he understands complex financial transactions and what conduct does or does not constitute fraud.
