Summary

Carl Lietz is a partner with the Atlanta trial practice firm of Finch McCranie, LLP, where he specializes in defending individuals and entities in federal criminal matters in the white collar area. Early on in his career, Carl clerked for two federal judges and then worked as a trial attorney in the Federal Defender Office in Atlanta. In the Defender Office, Carl tried a significant number of federal criminal cases, litigated hundreds of evidentiary and other issues, and handled sentencing hearings on a regular basis.

Since leaving the Defender Office over a decade ago, Carl has continued to devote his career to the defense of individuals facing or dealing with federal charges in the white collar area. However, like all trial lawyers, Carl is comfortable handling any matter – whether criminal or civil – that may ultimately get resolved in the courtroom. For that reason, other lawyers routinely recruit Carl to work on matters as a member of a multi-lawyer team.

Carl is a Fellow of the American Board of Criminal Lawyers, a national, legal, honorary society for outstanding criminal trial lawyers, with admission to fellowship by invitation only. In addition, in every edition since 2012, Carl has been selected for inclusion into The Best Lawyers in America (White-Collar Criminal Defense). Carl regularly lectures at national and regional seminars pertaining to federal criminal law, and for the last seven years, he has taught a trial practice course as an adjunct faculty member at the Georgia State University, College of Law.
