The Challenge Of Defending Against Federal Charges

Federal drug convictions bring harsher penalties than state drug cases, and the federal government has extensive resources — in both people and money — to draw on, which helps account for the very high conviction rate. To fight back and win against these odds requires extensive experience and legal knowledge.

Our strengths in defending against federal drug crimes are our many years of experience, our knowledge of federal drug laws, and our extensive network of investigators and expert witnesses.

Our main offices are located in Maryland and Washington, DC, but we handle cases throughout the country. We have had extensive success in cases originating in including California; around Norfolk, Virginia; Washington, D.C., and Albuquerque, New Mexico, Colorado and Florida.
