In August 2011, Al was elected President of the Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI, a nationwide organization of nearly 8000 former agents who support the FBI and promote its mission in the community.
Throughout his FBI career, Al traveled extensively in the United States and Europe and was instrumental in convicting corporate executives, politicians and organized crime figures. A number of his successful cases were featured in major publications including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes, Money and on national television programs, including ABC’s “World News Tonight” and CBS’s “60 Minutes.”
Al’s career at the FBI began when he took a job as a clerk in the Bureau’s cryptology department. That job offered him the chance to become an agent, and at 22, he completed training at the FBI’s Quantico, Viginia academy. He then served at posts in New York City; Birmingham, Ala.; Washington, D.C. and San Juan, Puerto Rico. Al’s last assignment with the FBI was in Tampa, Fla., where he served as the Supervisor of White Collar Crimes/Fraud Unit specializing in bank fraud, securities fraud, governmental fraud, civil rights and political corruption investigations. In 1992, he was recognized as the Federal Law Enforcement Officer of the Year after successfully supervising a major terrorism investigation.
Following his retirement from the FBI in 1995, Al joined the investigative law firm of James Hoyer with his friends and former federal prosecutors, Chris and Judy Hoyer where he serves as Lead Investigator. Al has also worked with the ABC-TV World News Tonight investigative unit, which directly reported to former news anchor, Peter Jennings.
Al received his degree from the City University of New York (B.A., 1968). He also graduated from the U.S. Army Defense Language Institute with a proficiency in Spanish.
