Working to Protect Your Rights From the Very Beginning

Federal trafficking cases are not built overnight. The police, DEA or FBI may spend months building a case. It is important to get a criminal defense attorney involved as soon as possible in the investigation. Sometimes mistakes are made at the initial stages of the case that violate your rights. We know how to challenge evidence obtained through the illegal search and seizure of your property, and we may be able to prevent a formal charge. Our criminal defense lawyers also will negotiate with prosecutors to reach deals or secure reduced penalties and alternative punishments.

Our aggressive defense from the very beginning of your case will help decrease your risk. We will work to help you obtain the best possible outcome for your charge.
