Daniel Lenghea, is the managing shareholder of Daniel Lenghea, P.A.. Daniel Lenghea dedicates a significant part of his practice time defending clients against state and federal criminal charges. Daniel Lenghea has been an international attorney since 1998 and from 2010 has established his practice in Miami.
Daniel is a graduate of University of Miami School of Law, he holds an executive program diploma from Harvard Law School, as well as a Master of Business Administration and Bachelor degree in Law.
His, business expertise and international exposure, as well as being in Miami, one of the busiest United States Federal District with respect to fraud and major crimes has afforded Mr. Lenghea the necessary acumen to excel in federal criminal cases involving white collar crimes, that are mostly instrumented by the major crimes division of the United States Attorney’s Office.
These crimes range from money laundry, bank fraud, aggravated identity theft, wire fraud, access device, visa and passport fraud, with large conspiracies that span several continents and involve large loss amounts.
Daniel Lenghea not only represents defendants in all Florida State Courts and in the United States District Court for the Southern, Middle, and Northern istrict of Florida but with respect to federal criminal cases his practice extends nationwide where he keeps contacts with local counsel or appears pro hac vice (for that particular case only).
In one of the publicized cases of United States vs. V. D. a case involving money laundry, wire fraud, bank fraud instrumented by the United States Postal Service in the United States istrict Court for the Southern istrict of Texas – Houston, a case publicized by the Huston Chronicle and United States Department of Justice, Daniel Lenghea represented the first defendant charged in the United States on the basis of facial recognition, a case in which despite the mounted evidence and high amount of loss, and over eight different identities used, Daniel Lenghea was able to secure for his client a sentence of only one year and one day, which represented only a few months of sentence for the defendant already confined for the period of the trial. (past results are not indicative or a prediction of future results and sentence terms differ on a case by case basis, ultimately the sentence being the judge’s discretion)
Also, in the United States istrict Court for the Southern istrict of Florida – Miami in the Case of United States v. G.B. a case of money laundry, conspiracy to commit wire fraud, wire fraud, and false use of passport along with similar charges filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas, Daniel Lenghea was able to transfer the prosecution from Texas and join the cases after reassignment to the Southern District of Florida where a joint and concurrent sentencing was obtained eliminating the possible consecutive sentences for the charges in the two different jurisdictions. In this specific instance after aggressive litigation strategies a sentence of fifteen months was secured. (past results are not indicative or a prediction of future results and sentence terms differ on a case by case basis, ultimately the sentence being the judge’s discretion)
Daniel Lenghea also represents federal clients that have been already sentenced in an attempt to reduce their sentence on the basis of Rule 35 of United States Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure for Reduction of a Federal Sentence imposed where if the case warrants a reduction may be obtained.
