Federal Criminal Defense / Government Investigations
If you are a target of a government investigation we can help. Our defense attorneys can challenge the Department of Justice or United States Attorney’s Office in the pre-indictment phase in order to dissuade the government from prosecuting a client whom is under investigation. This might mean providing evidence of innocence. It might mean simply monitoring the investigation.
Challenge the Evidence
We mount an aggressive challenge to the evidence in the pre-trial stage. A successful challenge to a search or statement can stop the government's case in its tracks.
Superior Trial Advocacy
If the case survives our pre-trial attack, we develop a trial strategy that makes victory possible. Our firm has a professional group of investigators that we put to work for you. This has led to the discovery of hidden motivations of witnesses and often makes all the difference at trial.
Expertise in Negotiating Pleas and Minimizing Sentences
In the unfortunate even that we must negotiate a guilty plea or deal with sentencing issues, our team of attorneys have substantial experience with the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. We will do everything in our power to advocate for a fair sentence.
We also handle appeals and habeas corpus proceedings that may result from mistakes by the Court or your previous attorney.
White Collar Defense
Possession w/ Intent to Distribute
