Types of Cases We Represent
You can be convicted of conspiracy for planning or agreeing with others to commit a criminal act. Depending on the specific statute, it may or may not be necessary for the prosecutor to prove that you took actions toward committing the crime or that you only took part in the conspiracy.
Although common drug offenses such as possession are crimes at the state level, you can be charged with a federal drug crime if you are accused of activities that cross state or international borders, such as trafficking or smuggling.
Federal Sentencing Guidelines
Federal judges are directed to consult with the Federal Sentencing Guidelines when determining what the sentence should be for any given crime. The guidelines include an extensive table and system for comparing the severity of the offense with the defendant's past criminal record in order to calculate the term of the sentence.
If you are charged with the illegal possession, sale, or purchase of a firearm, or if you are accused of the illegal use of a gun in connection with another crime such as drug trafficking, it is vital that you retain legal representation. An attorney from our firm may be able to help you clear your name, stay out of prison, or defend and preserve your right to bear arms.
Internet Sex Crimes
Have you been contacted by federal law enforcement agents in connection with an investigation into child pornography or other sex crimes on the internet? Don't go another moment without retaining legal representation to speak on your behalf, advise you of actions to take, and help you avoid incriminating yourself.
White Collar Crimes
White collar crimes may not involve violent actions or the use of drugs, but they are not viewed as victimless criminal acts. These crimes are frequently punished with harsh sentences, including several years in federal prison. Even if you avoid imprisonment, a conviction could have devastating consequences for your career and employment prospects.
