Federal Criminal Defense Attorney
Whether in Missouri or anywhere else in the country, facing federal charges is completely different than other criminal charges. It takes the right attorney who knows how to navigate the system to make sure federal prosecutors do not trample your legal rights.
My name is Gregory Smith. I am an experienced federal criminal defense lawyer who is licensed to practice in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri and the Southern District of Illinois. I am also deeply familiar with the U.S. Sentencing Commission’s federal sentencing guidelines and how they will affect your case. Contact my St. Louis-based law firm if you are facing federal charges like:
- Drug conspiracy
- White collar crime
- Child pornography
- Weapons trafficking

I Know How To Navigate The Federal Criminal Justice System
It is important to understand how different the federal justice system is compared to Missouri and St. Louis courts. Federal prosecutors will spend large sums of money to gather the evidence they need while using the services of the FBI, Drug Enforcement Administration, and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, to name a few. Additionally, there is no parole in the federal prison system.
This is where having a strong advocate on your side will prove most valuable. As an experienced litigator and trial lawyer, I know how to negotiate with prosecutors and judges to help you minimize the negative effects of your arrest or conviction.
Additionally, I am an experienced criminal appeals attorney. I can thoroughly review the evidence and trial record to help you determine if you received a fair trial.
