Gobena earned his BA with high distinction from the University of Virginia in 1995 and went on to earn his JD from Columbia Law School in 1998. Following graduation, he spent four years as an associate at Fried Frank Harris Shriver & Jacobson, where he had a white-collar defense practice that specialized in False Claims Act issues.

In 2003, Gobena joined the US Department of Justice as a Trial Attorney for the Civil Division's fraud section. He joined the Criminal Division's fraud section in 2009, and continues to serve the division as a leading trial attorney. The 36-year-old works on the Medicare Fraud Strike Force in Detroit where he is involved with criminal healthcare enforcement actions.


As a result of the formation of the Department of Justice's investigation and prosecution teams Gobena and many others have had the opportunity to work in areas with high fraud activity. In a recent case, Gobena prosecuted a Detroit clinic owner for his participation in a scheme worth more than 9 million dollars. Ultimately, the clinic owner received a 10 year prison sentence.

“I'm motivated by the fact health care fraud is a major problem out there. There's a human element to the story,” said Gobena in reference to the victims who find themselves trapped in scams.

Gobena has received a number of awards for his service. In October he received the Attorney General's Award for Fraud Prevention for his role in the retrieval of more than $680 million from pharmaceutical manufacturers. Also this year, the Department of Health and Human Services recognized his accomplishments with the Office of Inspector General Integrity Award.

In 2010, Gobena received the Assistant Attorney General's Award for Distinguished Service, the Criminal Division's Meritorious Service Award, and a Federal Bureau of Investigation Commendation. In 2008, the Department of Transportation presented him with the Office of Inspector General Merit Award.

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
