Law enforcement personnel spend a lifetime trying to catch and convict law breakers. When law enforcement is accused of breaking the law, even they go to Mr. Iredale for a defense.
- Mr. Iredale won the acquittal of a United States Customs Service agent who was accused of accepting a $125,000 bribe to let a tanker truck loaded with drugs pass through the Calexico port of entry; United States v. Ramos.
- Mr. Iredale won the acquittal of a former Chicago police officer who was accused of trafficking cocaine; United States v. Mores.
- Mr. Iredale defended a 30-year veteran of the Internal Revenue Service who was accused of taking bribes from a wealthy Imperial Valley grower allegedly seeking to evade paying millions in taxes (United States v. Morales).
- Mr. Iredale was hired by a former Immigration and Naturalization Service office (and Navy SEAL), to defend him against charges that he threatened women that he would withhold their border crossing cards unless they had sex with him; United States v. Toothman.
- In 1987, Mr. Iredale represented a former San Diego and National City police officer who was charged with conspiracy to commit burglary and conspiracy to commit grand theft (People v. Smith). The charges were brought against Smith after he filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against the chief of police stemming from a brawl involving former San Diego Chargers defensive end Fred Robinson.
- Mr. Iredale also defended a veteran United States Border Patrol agent against charges that he and another agent assaulted a physician by the border and then conspired to cover up the beating. United States District Court Judge John Rhoades eventually dismissed the charges against Mr. Iredales client (United States v. Jarvis).
