Federal Charges

Defense Of Federal Charges Requires A Skilled Team 

Federal charges require a knowledgeable defense from an attorney that understands the federal justice system and has the resources to handle complex criminal proceedings. Federal cases are handled differently than state charges – complete with its own rules of evidence and a unique set of sentencing guidelines.

Clients facing federal charges require the best available legal representation. Federal convictions can result in prison time, major fines and a permanent criminal record.
