Experienced Federal Crime Defense

Crimes charged in federal court are subject to separate sentencing guidelines from state court that often carry significantly higher, mandatory penalties. Our attorneys have decades of experience defending clients in federal court charged with:

  • Interstate or international drug trafficking
  • Federal drug conspiracy
  • Financial fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Other white collar crimes
  • Tax evasion
  • Federal weapons crimes including straw-purchases

We utilize our thorough knowledge of federal law and the federal sentencing guidelines to develop the most effective defense strategy, whether in taking your case to trial, negotiating an effective plea bargain or aggressively defending your rights in federal court. In appropriate cases, our attorneys will bring claims for police brutality and misconduct.
