Pamela B. Stuart, Attorney & Counsellor at Law

Why do I call my law practice Pamela B. Stuart, Attorney & Counsellor at Law? My New York Bar certificate admitted me to practice as both an attorney (one who goes to court) and counselor (one who provides legal advice). So, I draw upon the skills of a seasoned trial attorney in conducting business litigation. As a former Assistant United States Attorney, I am at home in the courtroom. I also analyze and solve the complex legal problems my clients present to me in consultations in a traditional office setting. 

I began doing trusts and estate work in the 1990's and have made estate planning, administration, and litigation a cornerstone of my practice. I focus on assisting high net worth families and individuals for whom I craft a plan for the transfer of wealth from one generation to the next. I also will provide assistance in guiding a family that is implementing a trust or navigating the probate process in and outside of court when a loved one passes away.

As a former federal prosecutor who handled both US and international cases, I am frequently called upon for commercial and business litigation services. I am consulted by those under investigation by government agencies and law enforcement or those with extradition or Foreign Corrupt Practices Act or diplomatic immunity issues. I have directed internal corporate investigations prompted by a grand jury subpoena and responses to search warrants. I represented a whistle blower in a False Claims Act/Qui Tam action against one of the world’s largest defense contractors. Before starting my own law practice, I practiced law at the Federal Trade Commission, as an Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Columbia, as a trial attorney at the Office of International Affairs in the Criminal Division at the U.S. Department of Justice and with two law firms.
