Knowledgeable Attorney Builds a Strong Defense to Federal Charges

While facing any type of criminal charges can be a scary experience, facing federal charges is particularly terrifying. If a federal agency like the F.B.I., S.E.C., A.T.F. or D.E.A. is involved, you can expect the charges to be serious and supported by the full weight and resources of the federal government. A conviction for a federal crime may involve long mandatory minimum sentences and the possibility of not having parole.
