FEDERAL CRIMINAL DEFENSE
Our lawyers have over 90 years of combined experience defending people against the Federal government.
If you are being charged with a Federal crime it is a very serious matter. You are most likely dealing with an agency of the United States and not just some local or state law enforcement. You may be dealing with the FBI, Immigration, the IRS, the DEA, or even the U.S. Secret Service. These agencies have unlimited resources and almost unlimited authority to build a strong case against you.
Federal crimes are created by the U.S. Congress. They may include:
- Financial Crimes
- Violations of the Controlled Substances Act (All drug crimes)
- Firearms offenses (Any weapons offense)
DEFENDING YOURSELF AGAINST THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
Our Federal defense attorneys have been defending clients charged with Federal offenses for over 90 combined years. Federal crimes are generally more legally complex than state crimes. The U.S. Attorney has endless resources geared to gain a conviction against you. Our attorneys understand Federal rules of evidence, Federal criminal procedure, and Federal trial procedure. We know how the government has built its case against you and when you should settle with them — or when you should proceed to trial.
