Chair, Criminal Defense and Government Investigations

Riza Dagli is an experienced litigator and criminal defense attorney. A former prosecutor with the Office of the Attorney General of New Jersey, he aggressively defends clients in all stages of state and federal criminal investigations as well as trials and appeals, covering a broad array of matters including health care and insurance fraud, labor and unemployment fraud, racketeering and money laundering, and environmental crimes. In his representation of both high-profile defendants charged with significant first-degree charges, as well as individuals merely being investigated by government agencies, he strives for the best outcome for his clients, their assets, and their businesses.

Prior to joining Brach Eichler, Riz held several key posts within the Office of the Attorney General of New Jersey including Director of the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit, where he prosecuted Medicaid and Medicare fraud, patient abuse and neglect, off-label marketing, and kickback litigation. He also served as Deputy Director of the Division of Criminal Justice, where he prosecuted organized crime, labor, casino, and environmental crimes. Additionally, Riz served as Acting Insurance Fraud Prosecutor (OIFP) for the State of New Jersey, overseeing OIFP’s statewide civil and criminal investigations, prosecutions, and settlements.

A licensed professional engineer, Riz also provides advocacy and counsel in technology-related legal matters, agreements, and contracts, as well as environmental compliance and litigation.

Prior to government service, Riz was an environmental litigator with a leading Morris County law firm. Previously, as a professional engineer, Riz designed construction projects throughout the United States and South America.
