We Know The Federal Court System

Federal court is very different from state court. There are a number of different procedural rules, there are different substantive crimes, and the sentencing process in federal court is markedly different from state court.

Our attorneys routinely practice in federal court and can provide you with the skilled guidance you need in this complex legal arena.

Take Action Early

It is important to take legal action as soon as there is any sign of trouble, and not wait until a formal charge is filed.

Many federal cases in our office begin well before a formal charge occurs. These cases can begin in a variety of different ways: Clients will come to us following a search warrant having been executed in a client’s house or business or after having received a “target letter” from the United States Attorney’s Office. These situations require an attorney who has substantial experience representing clients and who can work effectively either to persuade the government not to prosecute or to negotiate the best possible agreement to minimize the penalties.

You can be confident that our office has the experience to effectively handle your case in federal court. Not only have we represented hundreds of clients in federal courts, but both of our partners are board-certified specialists in federal criminal law.
