Jamie H. Solano is a tenacious trial lawyer who represents individuals and corporations in civil and criminal litigation, regulatory investigations, and enforcement actions.
Through the course of her career, Jamie has represented both plaintiffs and defendants and has worked on a variety of criminal and civil disputes from internal investigations through appeal, including matters involving allegations of cryptocurrency-related fraud schemes, a wide range of securities violations, fraud, wire fraud, mail fraud, health care fraud, business email compromises, obstruction, computer intrusions, ransomware, SIM-swaps, insider trading, international money laundering, website spoofing and phishing scams, access-device fraud, Bank Secrecy Act violations, Foreign Corrupt Practices Act violations, tax violations, domestic and counterterrorism, export control and sanctions violations, labor trafficking, immigration violations, violent crimes, international narcotics crimes, civil rights and other constitutional violations, claims under the Anti-Terrorism Act, breach of contract claims, corporate governance disputes, and numerous tort claims brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act.
Jamie has extensive trial experience in both civil and criminal cases and has appeared in federal courts around the country. Jamie has written several circuit appellate briefs and successfully argued a novel issue of first impression before the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Jamie previously served in the U.S. Department of Justice's Civil Division, where she was hired through the Attorney General's Honors Program, and as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas and the District of New Jersey. Jamie worked in units specializing in Cybercrime, National Security, Narcotics, and Violent Crimes. While serving as an Assistant U.S. Attorney, Jamie held many titles, including Senior Trial Counsel, the Criminal Training Coordinator, Summer Intern Coordinator, and the Cyber-Liaison to the Health Care Fraud and Opioid Units. Jamie also served as the District of New Jersey's Digital Asset Coordinator, where she was responsible for training and coordinating emerging issues involving digital assets.
While in the government, Jamie charged several notable cases, including wire fraud and securities violation charges arising from an alleged cryptocurrency mining shares pyramid scheme estimated to have taken over $2 billion of cryptocurrency from victims, along with unlicensed money transmitting charges against a CEO alleged to have run a business through a series of legal entities registered in the United States and abroad that offered banking services and cryptocurrency liquidation. Jamie's cases often involved international actors, including an indictment against seven foreign nationals in South Africa alleged to have engaged in wide-scale fraud and money laundering on behalf of an African organized crime syndicate. Jamie also tried one of the first cases nationwide arising from the FBI's takedown of a darkweb child pornography website that relied on evidence obtained by the FBI's network investigative technique (NIT).
