Even though allegations of a crime are merely allegations and do not by themselves prove that you are guilty, many people believe that an arrest and subsequent charges are reason enough to scrutinize and act harshly against an accused person. In many cases, the negative stigma of a crime is enough to hurt someone’s reputation, potentially forcing that person out of work or interfering with his or her daily life.

Just because you were accused of a crime does not give the public the right to condemn you before you’ve had a chance to tell your side of the story.

Federal Crimes

Federal Crime Defense Lawyers

Federal Crimes Require Experienced Attorney Counsel

If you’re facing criminal charges at the federal level, you need to understand that your case will likely be handled differently from a typical state criminal case. Oftentimes, in federal prosecution, the government and its agents have been investigating a potential suspect for months or even years before charges are brought against the accused.

In that time, prosecutors can accumulate considerable evidence, speak to witnesses and issue wiretaps or other means of electronic monitoring, all before a suspect has a chance to mount a defense.

Due to the complexity of federal cases, you need an attorney who not only understands federal law, but knows how to defend against the often aggressive prosecution used by the government and federal agencies. When it comes to protecting your future, the attorneys at McKellar, Easter & DeVore, Attorneys at Law, know what to do and the best way to do it.

Protecting You Against A Variety Of Charges

Our lawyers have extensive backgrounds handling a wide variety of federal crimes and know how to create solid defense strategies against:

  • Drug crime charges — possession, trafficking, manufacturing and cultivating of controlled substances and prescription drugs
  • Sex offenses — child pornography, sexual abuse of a child, sexual exploitation of a minor, rape and molestation
  • Fraud and economic crimes — identity theft, fraudulent bank entries, mail and wire fraud, money laundering, bankruptcy fraud, embezzlement, and mortgage fraud
  • Health care crimes — not limited to Medicaid and Medicare fraud, Social Security fraud, overbilling or improper billing, and unnecessary medical treatments
  • Gun and firearm offenses — not limited to making false statements to acquire a firearm, possessing a firearm in a school zone and delivering or selling a firearm to a prohibited individual
