FEDERAL & WHITE-COLLAR CRIMINAL DEFENSE
Protecting Your Rights, Reputation & Future
Although federal offenses have varying levels of severity, from misdemeanors to felonies, crimes are usually of a serious matter for the government to become involved. If you find yourself facing federal crimes charges, you may be up against the full force of the federal authorities.
Our team can provide you with the legal services you need in order to effectively fight for the best possible outcome on your behalf. By devoting tremendous amounts of time and resources to our clients’ cases, we are better prepared to defend their rights and exploit the weaknesses of our opponents’ cases.
We Handle Different Cases
Depending on what you are accused of, you could be facing any number of extreme penalties. Federal and white-collar crimes include some of the following:
Representation During an Investigation
Law enforcement often casts a wide net when investigating white collar crimes. Unfortunately, people sometimes think they have a duty to talk to law enforcement and provide them with access to their records or believe that retaining legal counsel will make them look guilty. To the contrary, law enforcement has a duty to follow the law regarding searches and seizures and interrogations. Consulting with a white-collar defense lawyer is not a sign of guilt but is instead a smart approach to an important legal matter.
The earliest moments of an investigation are crucial. In some cases, our early involvement stops the investigation from moving forward. Either we demonstrate that the prosecution has insufficient evidence to file charges or, if appropriate, we negotiate a deal that avoids formal charges. If the prosecution does move forward, our early involvement might keep damaging evidence out of the courtroom. We advise our clients on their rights to refuse to answer questions or turn over documents.
Our Trial Attorneys Are Aggressive Courtroom Advocates
If you’re being charged with a federal crime, you need a skilled criminal defense attorney on your side.
