Federal Crimes

Federal Criminal Defense Lawyers in Seattle

Charged with a federal crime? You need federal criminal lawyers!

If you have been charged with a federal crime, there is no time for guessing and no margin for error. Federal prosecutors have nearly unlimited resources, and use everything they've got to build a case against you. You need a federal criminal defense attorney, and you need one now.

The United States Attorney relies on the excellent investigators within many different federal agencies.  They can call on the Federal Bureau of Investigation's special agents (FBI), the Treasury Department's secret service investigators, the Drug Enforcement Agency's agents (DEA), as well as many other federal agencies.  These federal government agencies have nearly limitless resources to utilize in investigating allegation of federal criminal conduct.

The federal prosecution team often takes years to build a case, and will use wiretaps, surveillance, and electronic records to build a rock solid case before seeking an indictment from a secret federal grand jury.  Federal cases move very quickly, since the government has often prepared their case for trial, even before you are aware of the charges.  You need a federal defense attorney that can also work quickly.  Someone who knows the rules and procedures that exist in federal court, and can make those rules work to your advantage.  Someone with an office full of investigators, paralegals, and legal assistants who are used to working in the federal system.  There are many traps in the federal system for unwary defendants, and they can cause problems for lawyers who are not used to the differences in the federal court system.
