I have built my reputation on getting results. I am intimately familiar with all facets of the federal criminal justice system. I have have the knowledge and skill to make sure you understand your legal options and to guide you through the legal process.
There are many ways to end up in federal court. If you are accused of breaking a federal law, you will be tried at the federal level. Crimes against federal agencies such as the Securities and Exchange Commission (e.g., securities fraud), U.S. Treasury (e.g., counterfeiting), Environmental Protection Agency (e.g., toxic waste dumping), Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (e.g., gun-running) and Drug Enforcement Agency (e.g., drug smuggling) are federal crimes. I help clients defend against even the most serious charges.
Defendants are also charged federally when they are accused of crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnapping victim from one state to another. Crimes that use a federal agency, such as the U.S. Postal Service, to perpetrate an illegal act are likewise federal. I understand federal criminal law and all aspects of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, including:
Don’t give the federal prosecutor an added advantage. I handle all types of criminal cases, from white collar crimes to accusations of homicide.
