Federal crimes are generally more serious than crimes charged in state courts and the penalties in federal cases are harsh. The consequences of being charged in Federal court are serious. Being the subject or target of a federal criminal investigation or prosecution can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life.
The touchstone of our effort is to be aggressively proactive in implementing strategies to prevent criminal charges from being filed or, failing that, to fight vigorously any charges that may be brought against our clients.
Individuals and businesses who think they are under investigation for a federal crime often contact us before they speak with investigators or receiving a grand jury subpoena. We are often able to prevent the case from becoming public. We are defense attorneys and trial lawyers; we relish the courtroom battles and when trial is the only option we zealously defend our clients.
