IMPORTANT NOTES:

Although every case we handle is different, we also know from years of experience that many cases come down to a few critical issues:

  • The evidence the government has obtained (or claims to have)

  • The witnesses the government intends to call

  • The protocol police and investigators followed (or failed to follow)

We take these fundamental issues and craft individual defense strategies for each one of our clients. We understand that our clients and their families judge results by the outcome of their cases, and we truly do everything to give them a fair shot in the criminal justice system — and avoid a criminal conviction and the ensuing penalties.

We have the knowledge and expertise to mount a formidable defense on your behalf in federal court. A skilled federal criminal defense lawyer is your best defense.

Any criminal charge involving sex is taken extremely seriously, and the consequences can be severe. Not only do those accused of sex crimes face long prison sentences and hefty fines, but they also face further punishment that can hinder future jobs and relationships for a lifetime. If a defendant is found guilty of a sex crime, they may be required to register in a public database where the general public can view details of the crime and other personal information.
