H. Dean Steward - Cases / FBI, DEA, IRS RELATED CASES

Orange County Metro Magazine, August, 2009
“Dean Steward is a 34-year veteran of the federal court system who has tried more than 150 jury trials. 
Currently, his resume reads like a who’s who of criminal justice. He was the directing attorney for the Federal Public Defender Office in Orange County for 12 years and currently sits as a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers and Litigation Counsel of America. Individuals, corporations and peers consistently rate Steward as one of the top federal lawyers in America. 
The San Clemente-based lawyer is considered unique in his field because the depth and breadth of his expertise allows him to take on a variety of federal cases. 
Recently, Steward was one of the defense attorneys for former Orange County Sheriff Mike Carona. He was also the attorney in the high-profile MySpace teen suicide matter from St. Louis. The case was tried in Los Angeles, and in July, Steward secured a dismissal of all the charges. Days earlier, he had won an acquittal before a jury for his doctor client in a health care fraud case in Santa Ana federal court. 
Steward, an expert in handling white-collar criminal cases, says that real estate/mortgage fraud cases in federal court will expand in the coming days. Competent, aggressive defense counsel in these complex cases is a must, and Dean is one of the best in the field. 
Additionally, investment fraud, computer cases of all types and securities fraud cases are listed as top priorities for federal prosecutors. Dean’s years of experience get his clients through these tough cases.
