He specialized in white-collar crime and corruption prosecutions until 1992, when he prosecuted his first computer crime case, an intrusion into the Federal Court House network. From that point on, he became immersed in the growing field of computer crime cases. He became a charter member of the Department of Justice Computer and Telecommunications Coordinator program at its inception in 1995. He was a member of the national working group that advises the Attorney General on computer crime issues, and is a frequent lecturer on computer crime and electronic evidence.
