Caroline Goldner Cinquanto

Caroline Goldner Cinquanto has been successfully defending individuals investigated

and charged with crimes in federal, state and military courts since 1992.

Before opening her own practice, Carrie served as a public defender in the federal

courts of Texas and the state courts of Philadelphia. She began her career as a

Judge Advocate (JAG) in United States Navy (Lieutenant) and then returned to

service after 9/11 as an Air Force JAG (Captain) – representing the accused in

Courts-Martial, Article 32 Investigations, and Courts of Inquiry. She also has been

appointed by commanding officers of various military bases to conduct the military's

equivalent of internal investigations. For her service, Carrie received the Navy-

Marine Corps Medal of Commendation and the Navy Achievement Medal. All told,

she has handled hundreds of trials and grand jury investigations, and argued federal

appeals, in matters ranging from homicide to corporate tax fraud.

In addition to her courtroom work, Ms. Cinquanto was the director of the Temple

University Beasley School of Law graduate (LLM) Trial Advocacy Program. She

supervised the program's faculty and taught classes to experienced attorneys –

including general counsels, law firm partners and even a number of sitting judges. So

it should come as no surprise that when area federal judges need someone to handle

a tough case well, there's a good chance they will call on Carrie to take over the
