REPRESENTING DEFENDANTS IN FEDERAL COURT
Crimes that cross state lines are committed against the United States, or that are in violation of federal law are classified as federal crimes. They are investigated by agencies like the FBI and DEA and are prosecuted in United States District Courts. Completely different laws and rules apply when it comes to federal crimes. The federal law enforcement agencies that investigate these offenses typically have far more resources and experience to build evidence against you. If you are under investigation by a federal agency or have been indicted or subpoenaed by a federal Grand Jury, you need to act now to protect your rights.

“I met Sarah in 2012 when facing a federal charge. Sarah was very knowledgable and kept me in the loop every step of the way. I felt very confident in her ability to defend me against the charges and wow...she really did put in a lot of hard work on my case, sometimes calling me late at night (which was welcome and invited). A lawyer...calling me at 8pm in Saturday to get some information from me as she was developing my defense? Totally awesome. Now I was facing some jail time and I don't think any amount of work or magic on anybody's part could have spared me that fate. But her diligence and creativity in writing our sentencing memorandum got me a 33% downward departure from he sentencing judge...giving me back over six months of my life. Because of her, I never missed a holiday with my children and I am forever in her debt. Thank you Sarah. You are truly talented and if you handle future cases with the same caliber you handled mine, you have many years of success ahead of you.”
