The most common federal charges include:
- Drug Trafficking

In the event of a conviction, the sentences for federal law convictions can be harsh, with substantial prison terms and large fines a distinct possibility. The federal sentencing guidelines can be complicated. A skilled federal criminal defense attorney can help guide a client through the standards and procedures, and can work to obtain a more the most favorable sentence possible through the presentation of information regarding a defendant’s personal, family, medical, psychiatric, employment, and financial history.
