Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers
Federal Crimes Require Experienced Attorney Counsel
Mr. McKellar has been selected as a member of “America’s Top 100 Criminal Defense Attorneys” in 2019.
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, Attorneys at Law, know what to do and the best way to do it.

Don’t make the mistake of thinking that investigators or government agents are looking out for your best interests. If you interact with authorities without first consulting an attorney, you could very easily incriminate yourself unintentionally.
