Judson W. Starr

Recognized by Chambers as one of "the absolute best at the white collar bar," Mr. Starr's practice focuses on corporate governance and compliance initiatives for corporate clients facing serious and complex environmental contingencies.

An equally strong focus in representing corporations and individuals under investigation for environmental and other white collar offenses.

For over a decade, Mr. Starr chaired Venable's Environmental Practice group -- the only practice group in the nation that continues to also focus exclusively on representing clients facing environmental crimes issues.

He is a former Chief of the U.S. Department of Justice's Environmental Crimes Section. A value derived from his accumulated experience is an up-to-date knowledge base on environmental issues -- environmental crimes cases, plea agreements, pleading and other form files and data banks.

While serving as Chief, Mr. Starr, along with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, created, developed and directed the federal environmental crimes programs and policies. He also served as the Justice Department's chief spokesperson for the program and as the government's lead coordinator for all federal prosecutors and federal, state and local law enforcement agencies.
