Navigating the Federal Court System

Because federal criminal cases usually begin with a grand jury investigation and indictment, we can advise and represent you even while the U.S. Attorney’s office is considering potential charges against you. If you receive advance notice of your involvement in an investigation of drug charges, fraud crimes, or Internet sex offenses, we can sometimes convince the prosecution that you’re not the person the federal authorities should target. Early engagement in federal criminal cases can give the defense a powerful advantage.
