Federal Criminal Defense

Federal Criminal Law Defense Lawyer

There are not many more worrisome issues in life than if you are charged with a criminal offense. The worry can be escalated if the charges are from the United States government in federal court. I provide legal defense for charges filed against you by the United States government, and also for charges occurring on federal military installations such as Redstone Arsenal, Maxwell Air Force Base, Fort Rucker, Great Lakes Naval Station, etc. I also represent defendants in what is commonly referred to as “Magistrate’s Court” cases for federal property offenses.

I am a former federal military prosecutor, special assistant U.S. Attorney (SAUSA) and federal military defense lawyer. A link to my biography is here. I understand the worries and concerns when someone is facing federal charges to include the possible loss of a job and security clearance. My goal is to try and find the best possible resolution for you to put these worries to rest. I get to know my clients well over time on a personal level and each of my clients has immediate access to me at all times through email and my direct phone number. You can read former client reviews by a number of satisfied clients that I have helped in the past.

As an attorney licensed to practice law in Alabama, Illinois, Tennessee, Washington, D.C., and a number of federal courts to include the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, I represent clients wherever they need me.
