What we do
Defending the rights of those facing complex federal criminal charges

Are you currently under investigation involving a federal crime? Were you recently charged with a federal crime? Or have you already lost your trial, found guilty, and sentenced to prison?

You may feel overwhelmed when facing a federal criminal investigation, charge, or sentence, but you have rights protected by the U.S. constitution. With our background and experience, we will vigorously defend those rights in federal courts, all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court. Unlike Federal Public Defenders, who are buried deep under their caseload and overextended, we dedicate ourselves to each case, giving the comprehensive and personalized attention that it deserves.

We can help you with trials, sentencing, and appeals related to federal crimes including—but not limited to—the following:

Cyber crimes: For example, theft of money or property facilitated by computer or internet use (e.g., phishing scams, data mining, accessing financial information), prosecuted under 18 U.S.C. § 1030; cyberstalking, prosecuted under 18 U.S.C. § 2261A.

Immigration crimes: For example, illegal alien found in the United States following deportation or removal, prosecuted under 8 U.S.C. § 1326; alien smuggling, domestic transportation of unauthorized aliens, concealing or harboring unauthorized aliens, encouraging or inducing unauthorized aliens to enter the United States, and engaging in a conspiracy or aiding and abetting any of the preceding acts, prosecuted under 8 U.S.C. § 1324.

Tax crimes: For example, tax evasion, prosecuted under 26 U.S.C. § 7201; tax fraud, prosecuted under 26 U.S.C. § 7206.
