Shana Fulton represents businesses and individuals in criminal and civil litigation, under government investigation or in conducting internal investigations. As a defense attorney and former Assistant U.S. Attorney, she has experience litigating and investigating high-profile and complex matters at all levels of federal and state trial courts. She loves using her deep experience as a defense attorney and federal prosecutor on complex matters that feature a mix of criminal, civil and regulatory issues.

Prior to arriving at Brooks Pierce, Shana served as the Deputy Chief for both the Felony Major Crimes Section and the General Crimes Section of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia. She also served as Senior Litigation Counsel for the Homicide Section. Many of her previous cases garnered national news coverage, including in The Washington Post. Her previous experience as a prosecutor gives her a unique understanding of the techniques and strategies employed by the government against clients, and helps her devise strategic responses to defend them.

Shana conducts and advises on internal investigations for allegations of criminal misconduct, corporate malfeasance, ethics complaints and workplace issues for private businesses, local government entities and individuals. Her investigative work has included a wide array of issues, including healthcare, fraud, sexual harassment, discrimination, and educational issues.

She has years of experience in investigations from her time as a defense attorney at a prominent Washington, D.C. law firm and the numerous grand jury investigations she led as a federal prosecutor. Her experience as a defense attorney and former prosecutor gives her a unique understanding and approach to conducting investigations – whether internal or by the government – and advising clients as to how best to handle them.
