Raleigh, North Carolina, Federal Charge Criminal Defense Lawyer
Criminal charges in federal court mean facing an entirely different criminal justice system. Your attorney will need to understand the various rules relating to grand jury indictments, evidence discovery and deadlines for filing legal motions. Not every criminal defense law firm is equipped to handle federal charges. Even when a criminal defense law firm says it is qualified, talk to them about experience. In federal court, it makes a difference, from the beginning of your case to the end.
If you have been charged in federal court, contact us to discuss the nature of your case. We will give you a clear explanation of the federal mandatory minimum sentencing guidelines and what to expect. If you hire us to defend you, we will work aggressively to help you protect your rights.
