Professional Experience

Prior to joining Goodwin, Mr. Fondo served for nearly five years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Northern District of California, where he focused on prosecuting white collar crime, including investment, bank, financial, health care and securities fraud, drug trafficking and money laundering. Mr. Fondo’s trials included obtaining the conviction of the owner of a large national company for bank fraud after a month-long trial, and obtaining the conviction of a criminal defense lawyer for money laundering. As a prosecutor, Mr. Fondo won every trial.

During his time as a federal prosecutor, he led a multi-jurisdictional take down of an international drug trafficking organization resulting in what was believed to be the largest seizure of methamphetamine in U.S. history. This case received the 2012 Northern California High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area case of the year award, an effort run by the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy.

Mr. Fondo is the partner in charge of Pro Bono in Goodwin's Silicon Valley office. Mr. Fondo also is on the Northern District of California Criminal Justice Act panel and one of the co-founders of the joint criminal trial program between private law firms in Silicon Valley and Santa Clara County Office of the Public Defender.
