Experienced Defense Attorney Handling Federal Crimes
There is no such thing as a minor federal case. If you are convicted of a federal crime, you could be facing a significant prison sentence without the possibility of parole.
If you learn that you are the target of a federal criminal investigation, you should contact a lawyer as soon as possible. I, James Champion, offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. Don’t wait another minute to start protecting your rights against your federal charges.
Protecting Those Accused Of Federal Crimes Throughout Michigan
I represent people who face all types of federal charges such as:
- Federal drug trafficking charges
- Possession of child pornography
- Possession of a weapon by a convicted felon
- Fraud, embezzlement and other white collar crimes
Local governments often refer cases for federal prosecution when the state lacks the experience or resources to handle the case. When you are charged in federal court, the consequences can often be far more serious than you would face in state court.
Federal criminal charges are investigated by organizations such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Drug Enforcement Agency, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms. If you are contacted by a federal agent, you should not say anything before you talk to a lawyer. You could inadvertently give the agent the information he or she needs to indict you.
Obtain Guidance From An Attorney Sooner Rather Than Later
Oftentimes, the government will begin investigating you way in advance of actually filing charges against you. If you feel as though you could be under investigation by the authorities, put a lawyer by your side immediately. There are ways of building your case in order to prevent it from ever going to trial. The earlier you involve a defense, the better off your chances of success become.
If you have already been charged, you definitely need an attorney. By working with experts in the field, I am able to fully investigate all of the evidence in your case and build a defense that pokes holes in the prosecution’s claims.
