Federal Criminal Trials
Because most criminal trials and civil lawsuits are prosecuted in state courts, the majority of practicing attorneys rarely enter the federal court system and are unfamiliar with the unique powers vested in federal judges. If you are charged with a federal crime or face a lawsuit where federal jurisdiction applies, you need an attorney who is more than simply acquainted with U.S. law and federal rules of procedure. We have been litigating cases in the federal courts nationally since 1984. We understand the many nuances, advantages and disadvantages of federal court, and are prepared to aggressively represent your interests and protect your constitutional rights.
Federal prosecution requires an attorney with extensive federal defense experience
If you are under investigation by the federal Government or have been charged with the commission of a federal crime, like investment or other federal fraud, you will be tried in federal court. 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, as are crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnapped 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. Crimes involving the use of the the internet may also be charged federally. We thoroughly understand federal criminal law and all aspects of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure.
