“No practitioner will want to be without a copy of Proving Federal Crimes. If you want a ready reference complete with answers to virtually every area of criminal law and procedure, PFC is something you will definitely have in your library.” Honorable Charles H. Turner, Chicago Daily Law Bulletin

“A must have for all Department of Justice.” DOJ Librarians Council

“PFC is the best treatment of criminal law and practice ever… It should be on the bookshelf of every prosecutor, criminal defense attorney, judge and police department.” Dupage County Bar Journal

Proving Federal Crimes is organized in the rough chronology of a Federal criminal proceeding; it deals with topics ranging from the criminal investigation to pretrial proceedings, from grand jury practice to trial practice, from sentencing to post-trial proceedings. In addition to the step-by-step analysis of the criminal justice system, the book has several unique features, many of which are valuable in civil practice. Francis D’Eramo, civil lawyer

“Regardless of your level of experience, PFC is almost like having a seasoned prosecutor at your side as it handily works an effective blend of substantive law, practical tips and ethical advice.” Georgia Bar Journal

“Almost every question that can come up during a criminal case from indictment through post trial proceedings appears to be answered in a succinct manner complete with case citations. . . an extremely well organized and useful book.” Judge Harry Leinenweber, ABA Criminal Justice Magazine

“Proving Federal Crimes presents complex issues in a straightforward manner that will be as useful to agents in the field as it is to attorneys in the courtroom.” Oregon State Bar Bulletin

“I was a federal agent for 30 years. If only a book like this existed when I was making cases, my job would have been easier and I would have been far more effective. Mr. Nissman has done agents and lawyers a great public service with this book.” Robert H. Burch, President, Corpus Juris Publishing

“Proving Federal Crimes does not proselytize the prosecutorial viewpoint. Because it cites cases and legal arguments likely to be relied upon by the defense, it is valuable resource for the defense attorney.” Robert Tucker, Federal Defender

“The field of federal prosecution has grown exponentially in the last twenty years and this work surveys all of the many new areas with which we must be familiar when we structure an investigation and prepare a case for trial. In addition, it provides far greater detail than the original work so that it is not only valuable to the new prosecutor seeking to learn the ropes, but also the experienced prosecutor seeking a refresher on the law. Although all Chapters contain extremely useful information, l, this reader found the sections on obtaining physical evidence, international issues, interaction with the intelligence community, common defenses and corporate responsibility to be particularly helpful.” Ron Sievert, Assistant U.S Attorney, Western District of Texas

“A must have for all litigators.” Treston Moore, Defense Attorney

“Proving Federal Crimes has unique features, many of which are valuable in civil practice.” Virgin Islands Bar Bulletin
