As a Judge Advocate, Mr. Crivelli was selected as the lead military defense counsel in a nationally publicized wrongful death case that has since shaped United States domestic policy on the use of military personnel on America’s international borders for drug interdiction purposes. While serving on active duty, Mr. Crivelli was also charged with the responsibility of assisting the development and implementation of the Department of Defense and Department of the Navy’s policy on sexual harassment. Mr. Crivelli educated Marines, Sailors, and Department of Defense Personnel on the implementation of the policy and was often called upon to formally investigate serious charges of sexual harassment and defend high-ranking Marines criminally charged with unlawful acts of sexual harassment. Mr. Crivelli is still a member of the Marine Corps Reserve where he holds the rank of Major. His last billet was serving as an appellate criminal defense counsel in Washington, D.C.
