The United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas prosecutes a wide variety of federal crimes, ranging from traditional offenses such as drugs and immigration violations to white collar crimes such as health care fraud, bank fraud, securities fraud, and public corruption. Paul Coggins, former United States Attorney for the Northern District of Texas and current partner at Locke Lorde LLP, and Kiprian Mendrygal, also a partner at Locke Lorde LLP, will discuss their experience with federal criminal prosecutions in the Northern District of Texas.
