Himelstein as an Associate Managing Director in its Business
Intelligence and Investigations practice, based in New York. Since 1987,
Himelstein was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Unites States
Attorney's Office in Washington, D.C., where she investigated and tried
some of the office's most significant terrorism and national security
cases of this past decade. She also is among the most experienced sex
crimes prosecutors in the United States and will be a tremendous asset
to Kroll's Title IX and Sexual Misconduct practice.

"Julieanne brings invaluable perspective on many challenging, often
contentious, issues that clients are confronted with today," said
William Nugent, Regional Managing Director – North America for Kroll's
Business Intelligence and Investigations practice. "Julieanne's deep
knowledge of complex matters, personal tenacity and collaborative
approach exemplify the Kroll strengths that have earned the confidence
and trust of clients worldwide. On behalf of our clients and colleagues
across the firm, I am delighted to welcome Julieanne to our team."

Himelstein has served as Deputy Chief in the Sex Offense and Domestic
Violence Section. Members of this section work closely with community
stakeholders on issues related to domestic violence, sexual abuse and
crimes against children. In this role, Himelstein supervised thousands
of sex offense/sexual misconduct cases, investigating and prosecuting
hundreds of these cases. She also pioneered interview and trial
presentation techniques in Washington, D.C.

Over her career, Himelstein was the lead prosecutor in more than 100
jury trials involving international terrorism, fraud, violent crime, sex
trafficking, child exploitation, sex offenses, public corruption and
obstruction of justice cases. In conjunction with many of these cases,
Himelstein conducted numerous complex grand jury investigations leading
to multiple indictments and guilty pleas. Notably, Himelstein played a
leading role in several high-profile cases brought by the U.S.
Attorney's Office. These include U.S. v. Abu Khatallah, where she
was the co-lead prosecutor in a case arising from the terrorist attacks
on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and U.S. v. Andrew Warren,
where she was the lead prosecutor in the sexual assault case against a
high-level U.S. intelligence official stationed in Algeria.

Himelstein earned a J.D. from Antioch School of Law and a B.A. in Speech
and Communications at Emerson College. She is admitted to the legal
practice in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. In
recognition of her outstanding contributions and accomplishments,
Himelstein has received awards from several federal agencies, including
the U.S. Department of Justice, Executive Office for the United States
Attorneys Director's Award; FBI Director Robert S. Mueller, III Award
(presented four times); and U.S. Department of State Diplomatic Security
