Being charged and convicted of a Federal white collar crime can lead to having to serve lengthy prison sentences, being placed on supervised release (probation) for long periods of time, and penalties such as large fines and hefty restitution obligations that threaten to ruin your livelihood and your family.

Protect your Rights and Preserve Your Reputation
You have worked hard to build something and all of a sudden it appears that all is lost. If you are under investigation or have been charged with a Federal crime, you need to take immediate action to give yourself the best chance of avoiding what are oftentimes harsh and inflexible consequences.
We believe that it is best to contact an attorney as early as possible. The sooner that your attorney can begin investigating your case and speaking with the United States Attorney’s Office on your behalf, the greater your likelihood of success in either avoiding charges, negotiating a reduction in charges or mitigating consequences.
While every case is different and their respective circumstances unique, it is always best to try to intervene before charges are filed. If that is not possible and charges have already been filed, we will begin preparing your case for trial while we explore possible defenses, motions to suppress evidence or dismiss the case altogether. It is also possible to reach a resolution with the U.S. Attorney’s Office via a negotiated plea.
