Facing A Federal Criminal Charge?


Don’t Navigate The Federal Criminal Justice System Alone

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 Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Drug Enforcement Administration, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, to name a few. Additionally, there is no parole in the federal prison system. The stakes in a federal criminal case are exponentially higher than that of any other crime.

When you’re facing a federal criminal charge, the best thing you can do for your case is to contact a seasoned defender. Having a strong advocate on your side will be incredibly valuable as you navigate the justice system and seek a favorable result. As an experienced litigator and trial lawyer, I know how to negotiate with prosecutors and judges to seek to help you minimize the negative effects of your arrest.
