Charles Brandt

Charles Brandt is a former homicide prosecutor and Chief Deputy Attorney General for the State of Delaware. In private practice since 1976, Brandt was elected president of the Delaware Trial Lawyers Association and Delaware Chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates. He has been named by his peers as one of the "Best Lawyers in America". He has co-authored the book Donnie Brasco: Unfinished Business (Running Press) with Joe Pistone, as well as We’re Going to Win This Thing (Berkley) with former FBI special agent Lin DeVecchio.

Brandt is a frequent speaker on cross-examination and interrogation techniques for reluctant witnesses. Brandt is the author of a novel based on major crimes he solved through interrogation, The Right to Remain Silent (St. Martin's Press) and the true-crime book I Heard You Paint Houses (Steerforth Press), which was an immediate New York Times bestseller. Academy-award winning director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro will be joining together in a film adaptation of I Heard You Paint Houses, to be produced by Paramount.
