Fighting Federal Charges For Over 40 Years

White collar crimes have severe penalties, especially at the federal level. Your very freedom is at stake if charged with fraud or another offense. For protection from a proven defense attorney, you can trust your future to The Law Offices of Richard Kuniansky.

I have more than 40 years of experience. Before committing my career to criminal defense, I served 7 years as a federal prosecutor. Now, I focus almost exclusively on federal fraud defense. In my career, I have handled numerous high-profile cases, including trying the second-largest Ponzi scheme on American record.

Mr. Kuniansky tried his first trial within weeks of graudating law school and has been a trial attorney ever since. He relishes the opportunity to go to trial against the governement. “I was referred to Mr. Kuniansky. He said: “If you want a trial, you are entitled to a trial.” We proceeded to trial and he did an outstanding job in defending me. I was eventually acquitted of all charges.” – L.N.

A Leader In Federal Criminal Fraud Defense

When you are choosing a defense lawyer, you need someone who has a reliable record for success. Even in complex and immensely serious cases, I have secured dismissed charges, acquittals, reduced sentences and reduced charges for my clients. A few of the accolades I have earned from my peers:

  • Selected for inclusion in the SuperLawyers list
  • Named a top criminal defense lawyer by Houstonia Magazine
  • AV Preeminent peer-review rating through Martindale-Hubbell*

In addition, I am board-certified in criminal defense law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Less than 1% of the lawyers licensed in Texas are board certified in criminal law. I have a reputation as a leader in the field of federal fraud defense.
