Our expert federal criminal defense attorneys understand that the penalties are severe; there is no parole or guaranteed pathway to plea bargaining. The government has bottomless pockets and an unlimited arsenal at their disposal – and they do not hesitate to pull out all of the stops. Federal cases typically cross state lines, or they involve the Internet or a government agency. The government uses highly sophisticated resources against suspects including wiretaps, video surveillance and pen registers.

A federal criminal defense attorney knows that any time a defendant is charged with a serious crime, it is likely that federal prosecutors and law enforcement have been investigating for a while. They will put together a tough and experienced legal team, and they will spend months or years preparing a case.

Choose an experienced federal criminal defense team as soon as you are aware you may be the target of an investigation. If possible, do not wait until you are summoned to appear before a magistrate. Your lawyers need time to:

  • Carefully examine the charges brought against you
  • Get up to speed on a case the government has likely built over time
  • Craft a strong defense

Increasingly, the government has been cracking down on drug offenses, white collar crime and crimes committed over the Internet. In recent years the FBI has mounted a very strong offensive against pedophiles, and the agency is always mounting sting operations involving child pornography and solicitation of minors.

However, headline grabbing cases are not all we handle. A person can also be charged with committing offenses on federal property such as a post office or a national park. Society is not in in the defendant’s corner – but we are. Call us right away about your case. The more time we have to find out what the government has on you, how they got it and why, the better your chances of seeking the best possible outcome in your particular circumstances.
