What to Expect In Federal Court

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.

We represent people facing such serious federal charges as the following:

  • Drug trafficking, manufacture, and sales
  • Drug conspiracy cases
  • Money laundering
  • Bank fraud, mortgage fraud, or insurance fraud
  • Bank robbery
  • Kidnapping
  • Federal weapons offenses
  • Homeland security and TSA cases, such as possession of guns at an airport
  • Public corruption or bribery of an elected official
  • Sex crimes such as online child pornography or solicitation of a minor for sex

Our understanding of federal criminal defense practice and procedure can help you at every stage of a case from the initial investigation to sentencing. To learn more about our ability to protect your interests, contact a criminal trial lawyer at The Worthington Law Centre in Salinas or San Francisco.
