Leveraging 13 years of experience as a judge advocate in the U.S. Army, assistant attorney general for the Wisconsin Department of Justice, and founder of her own solo law practice, Crystal now advises private equity funds, venture capital funds, hedge funds, and portfolio companies on anti-money laundering (AML), Know Your Customer (KYC), and other regulatory compliance frameworks.
For six years, Crystal served in the U.S. Army Judge Advocate General's Corps as a judge advocate, commissioned to represent the legal interests of the U.S. Army and the Wisconsin National Guard. In this role, she counseled managers and senior leaders on highly sensitive matters involving regulatory compliance, investigations, and privacy. Crystal also played a pivotal role as a founding attorney in the development and management of the Special Victims' Counsel program for the National Guard Bureau and co-initiated and advocated for changes to the Wisconsin Code of Military Justice, ultimately adopted by the Wisconsin legislature, bolstering protections for survivors of sexual assault.
Upon completion of her public service, Crystal founded her own law firm, where she represented clients in the professional services, real estate, and technology industries, advising on general business matters, including corporate formation and governance, financing, M&A, risk management, and regulatory compliance as well as employment law, real estate transactions, and commercial litigation.
