Bank Fraud

Stanley Greenberg’s client, a Los Angeles businessman, was charged in Federal Court with participating in a $6 million bank fraud, causing the bank to fail. A bank officer was also charged with participation in the scheme. Five others pled guilty to the charges. Following a two-month jury trial, the bank officer was convicted, but Mr. Greenberg’s client was acquitted of all charges.

A real estate broker was accused of defrauding banks by submitting false loan applications. Stanley Greenberg conducted an investigation and presented evidence to the prosecutor and the FBI showing that bank employees had made the false entries. As a result, the charges were dropped.

Business Crimes
In 2006 the owner of a corporation selling electronic parts was accused of corruptly bribing the purchasing agent of a customer. The buyer was accused of buying products from her company at inflated prices and splitting the excess profits with her. Following a two-week jury trial in Orange County, the jury reached its verdict in less than one hour, acquitting her of all charges.

An electronics dealer was accused of exporting products to prohibited countries, in violation of federal law. Following Stanley Greenberg’s investigation, in which the dealer’s employees were questioned and relevant documents were presented, all charges were dropped.

Drug Crimes
Oscar Ordonez contacted Stanley Greenberg immediately after being convicted in a drug trafficking conspiracy. Mr. Ordonez faced decades in prison. Stanley Greenberg agreed to appeal his case. After carefully reviewing the evidence and trial transcripts, Mr. Greenberg discovered that a critical “drug ledger” had been erroneously received in evidence against Mr. Ordonez, and he had been unfairly convicted. Mr. Greenberg convinced the Court of Appeals that he was right, and the Court reversed the conviction [U.S. v. Ordonez, 722 F.2d 1255 (9th Cir. 1985)]. Mr. Ordonez was released shortly after his conviction was reversed by Mr. Greenberg.

Stanley Greenberg filed numerous motions challenging the charges, the investigation and the admissibility of evidence. Following successful rulings, all charges were dismissed.

The defendant was acquitted of all charges.
