Being charged with a federal crime is serious. Federal criminal defense, is commonly referred to as white collar crime. Federal crimes carry different sentencing, fine, and restitution requirements, than State level offenses. Due to the complexity of the United States Sentencing Guidelines and other applicable laws, experienced representation is demanded.

These cases are complicated. Federal drug cases often have issues such as:
• Ghost dope - Drugs that were never found, but a confidential informant (snitch), says that you possessed them, sold them, or used them at some point.
• Wiretaps - Actual recordings of your telephone calls and text messages.
• Confidential Source/Informant - People that provide information regarding alleged criminal activities to the government. These individuals are often times paid by law enforcement for information, or are facing criminal charges themselves, and are providing information in exchange for a reduced sentence.
• Testifying Co-Defendant - Individuals charged in the same indictment, that testify against others in the indictment, in exchange for a potentially reduced sentence.
• Cellphone Download- A digital version of everything in your cellphone. If the government gets your physical cellphone, often times they will ask the judge for a search warrant to extract all of the data from your phone. Cellphone downloads are typically thousands of pages, and include the text messages, pictures, contacts, and app data that is in your phone.
• Cellphone Records-A record of the calls and text messages sent and received from a specific telephone number. Cellphone records include the date, time, and duration of each call.
• Cellphone Location Data- The location of the cell phone tower a cellphone pinged from, at a given point and time. The Government requests this information from your cell phone provider.
