Federal Criminal Defense
Federal cases are often the product of lengthy, often years long, investigations. There may be boxes and hard drives of evidence to review. Some types of criminal offenses that the U.S. Attorney’s Office typically pursues in federal court include high-level drug offenses, conspiracies, federal weapons charges, child pornography, computer offenses, crimes that relate to national security, and large-scale financial crimes, many of which involve mortgage or bank fraud. Our office has extensive experience in federal court at both the trial and post-conviction levels. Each and every inquiry by the federal government should be taken extremely seriously. If you or your company are contacted by agents or the prosecution in a criminal investigation, the first step you take should be contacting an experienced lawyer. DeBorde and her team will work with you personally and closely throughout the investigation or case. DeBorde's federal trial experience is invaluable in helping you or your company minimize possible criminal liability achieving the best outcome.
