Experienced Southern California Criminal Law Attorney Defends You in Federal Court

Knowledgeable Lawyer Represents Defendants Charged with Federal Crimes in Southern California

If you are accused of a crime that violates a statute passed by Congress, you will be tried in federal court.

For the best chance at a favorable outcome, you need a criminal defense attorney who has successfully defended clients charged with federal crimes.

Her intimate knowledge of the federal criminal justice system and determination to challenge federal prosecutors gives her clients an advantage in every case she handles.

Determined Defense Counsel for Clients Accused of a Range of Federal Crimes

There are many crimes charged at the federal level and adjudicated in federal court. Some of those include crimes against federal agencies, such as:

  • Securities and Exchange Commission —  securities fraud
  • U.S. Department of the Treasury —   counterfeiting
  • Environmental Protection Agency — toxic waste dumping
  • Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms — gun-running
  • Drug Enforcement Agency —  drug smuggling
  • U.S. Postal Service — mail fraud

Defendants are also charged federally when they are accused of crimes that cross state lines, such as moving a kidnapping victim from one state to another, and white collar crimes such as fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, internet crimes, and forgery. When you face any federal criminal allegation, it is imperative you’re represented by an attorney who has successfully represented clients in federal cases.

Accomplished Attorney Battles Federal Prosecutors
