Federal Criminal Law
The Federal criminal system is unique and bears little resemblance to state criminal court proceedings. Federal law enforcement agencies enjoy significant resources and support in prosecuting cases. Defendants in the Federal system face long prison sentences and stiff fines. The Federal criminal justice system is more formal and technical than state prosecutions. You need an attorney with federal litigation experience to provide an effective defense.
Federal criminal sentencing is particularly complex and is often the most important proceeding in a federal criminal prosecution. You need an attorney who understands the United States Sentencing Guidelines, downward departures and variances, and how to present sentencing mitigation evidence including family, social, medical, financial, addiction, and mental health histories.
