Long is Principal of NCFPS-Digital Currency AML Consultants, LLC, an anti-money laundering and fraud prevention consultancy specializing in addressing the specific AML compliance and fraud prevention challenges facing companies in the virtual currency environment.   


    Long earned his J.D. degree from the University of Pennsylvania Law School after earning his B.A. from Howard University (magna cum laude), where he was admitted to Phi Beta Kappa. He is a member of the State Bar of Georgia, in good standing (inactive).


    During Long’s nearly decade of government service as a Special Agent with the Division of Labor Racketeering, U.S. Dept. of Labor Office of Inspector General, he investigated cases pertaining to the influence of organized crime in labor unions and related pension funds. Many of his cases were complex financial investigations and involved money laundering violations, the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, public corruption, extortion, bribery and witness tampering. He was also active in fraud investigations that pertained to fraud, waste and abuse within Department of Labor programs. Long served with distinction as a Special Agent and was awarded several awards for meritorious service.


    After leaving government service, Long embarked on a career in teaching and taught at several institutions of higher learning, including California State University, Long Beach, Chapman University College and Dominican University of California. For several years, while teaching, he worked in real estate development as a mixed-use development specialist for several commercial developers and was instrumental in placing under contract more than $19 million worth of property suitable for mixed-use development.


    Before he embarked on his careers in government service, teaching and real estate, and upon his law school graduation, Long was awarded a prestigious year-long judicial clerkship with the late Honorable Clifford Scott Green of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. He later practiced commercial and insurance litigation with the Atlanta law firm of Branch, Pike, Ganz & O’Callaghan (now Holland & Knight).


    In addition to his consulting practice, Long is an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice and Legal Studies at Brandman University (part of the Chapman University system) and serves as Program Coordinator for the Criminal Justice program. Long teaches at Brandman’s Walnut Creek campus located in the San Francisco Bay area. His work at Brandman earned him recognition as Faculty of the Year (2012-2013) for the School of Arts & Sciences.
