Mr. Eastin is one of the founding partners of Nicholson & Eastin, LLP, and he has over sixteen years of experience handling white collar criminal, health care, and complex civil litigation matters. Over the course of his career, Mr. Eastin has acquired significant experience practicing in the areas of white collar criminal defense, health care regulatory law, corporate internal investigations, civil fraud matters, False Claims Act whistleblower litigation, and complex civil litigation.
Mr. Eastin attended the University of Kentucky in Lexington, KY, for his undergraduate studies, where he obtained a B.A. in Philosophy and graduated summa cum laude. He then attended the University of Kentucky College of Law, where he served as the Managing Editor of the Kentucky Law Journal and graduated fourth in his class. Following law school, Mr. Eastin joined King & Spalding in Atlanta, GA, a prestigious international law firm. Mr. Eastin was selected to be a member of King & Spalding’s Special Matters and Government Investigations team, which represents corporations and individuals in complex federal and state criminal investigations, internal investigations and Congressional investigations, as well as in related civil and regulatory proceedings. The special matters team is staffed in large part by former federal and state prosecutors, including several former Department of Justice officials, and Mr. Eastin had the unique fortune of working for two partners in Atlanta that both eventually left King & Spalding to serve as the Deputy U.S. Attorney General (Mr. Larry Thompson and Mr. Gary Grindler). During his time with King & Spalding, Mr. Eastin gained significant experience dealing with matters involving federal grand juries, corporate internal investigations, healthcare fraud, the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and whistleblower issues. After several years with King & Spalding, Mr. Eastin was recruited to join Broad and Cassel, a regional Florida law firm that specializes in health care regulatory matters and white collar criminal defense, where he worked closely with Mr. Robert Nicholson.
Since the inception of Nicholson & Eastin, Mr. Eastin has handled a variety of administrative, civil, and criminal enforcement actions in the health care context, as well as complex litigation matters in both federal and state court, including most recently a high profile, multi-million dollar civil RICO matter. Mr. Eastin has also handled a number of employment litigation matters, with an emphasis on noncompetition agreements and trade secret issues.Bar Admissions
