Keynote By Former US Attorney Russoniello
Investigating in the Big Leagues: From Barry Bonds to Child Pornography, a US Attorney's Perspective
Former US Attorney for the Northern District of California Joseph P. Russoniello will deliver the keynote address at the 2012 annual conference of the Association of Workplace Investigators, Inc. (AWI). His topic will be Investigating in the Big Leagues: From Barry Bonds to Child Pornography, a US Attorney's Perspective.
From Barry Bonds to "kiddie porn," espionage to the Jonestown Massacre, guns, gangs, and drugs to "crime in the suites," a one-time SFDA Investigator and Deputy DA, Joe Russoniello, former US Attorney for the Northern District of California, has "been there, done that." Using his real-time experiences as a backdrop, his presentation will focus on the interaction between prosecutors and investigators, how game plans are developed, tasks are assigned to team members, investigative resources are discovered and maximum benefits achieved.
Mr. Russoniello served two terms as US Attorney for the Northern District of California in San Francisco, from 1982 to 1990 (appointed by President Reagan), and from 2008 to 2010 (appointed by President George W. Bush). Between his two terms he was Senior Counsel and resident with Cooley Godward Kronish LLP in San Francisco, Dean of the San Francisco Law School, and a member of the National Review Board for the Protection of Children and Young People of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
"We are extremely excited that former US Attorney Russoniello will keynote our annual conference," says Julie Moore, a Massachusetts attorney and AWI's annual conference chair. "His expertise in investigating high profile criminal and civil cases was the main criterion in his selection, and we are delighted to have him join us," Ms. Moore said.

The conference will begin with a pre-conference session on the afternoon of Thursday, November 1, continue all day and into the evening Friday, November 2, and wind up by afternoon on November 3.
