I have known and worked with Beau Dietl and his team for almost 20 years. His firm has provided excellent investigative assistance to our law firm on numerous matters over the years. Our firm specializes in white collar criminal defense and complex civil litigation primarily in the federal courts.

Between 1985 and 1994, I served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Eastern District of New York and focused on investigating and prosecuting La Cosa Nostra crime families. As Deputy Chief of the Organized Crime and Racketeering Section, I became familiar with our investigations of all the major organized crime families. I headed the successful prosecutions of the leadership of the Genovese and Lucchese Crime families, including their bosses and capos, as well as the consigliere of the Colombo crime family. In addition, I and my team successfully prosecuted dozens of members and associates of all five New York crime families.

At no time during my decade of service in the United States Attorney’s Office did I learn of any allegations suggesting that Mr. Dietl had improper connections to any organized crime figures. To the contrary, Mr. Dietl was widely admired as one of th emost decorated NYPD officers in the department’s storied history. I have great respect for Mr. Dietl and his firm and recommend them without hesitation.

Very truly yours,
Gregory j. O’Connell
