Charged With A Federal Crime? Pick Your Attorney Carefully.
Federal crimes are serious. They can carry strict mandatory minimum prison sentences. A conviction can also limit your rights under the Constitution, including your right to vote or carry a firearm. In addition to a fierce advocate who will protect your rights, you also need to be prepared for the court proceedings and the potential consequences.
At Charles L. Weber, Jr., Attorney & Counselor at Law, you get both. In private I may be your harshest critic in conversations that are covered by the attorney-client privilege. We will discuss every detail of your case so that you will know where you stand under the law and be capable of making the best decisions on your behalf. In every other situation, I will be your strongest advocate, fighting to protect your rights and have the charges reduced, dismissed or otherwise achieve the best possible outcome.
I Will Use My Experience To Fight For You In Any Federal Case
Federal court is a system separate from the state court system. Cases involving federal laws must be prosecuted in federal court, and the procedural rules are different. Many actions are considered illegal under both state and federal laws. Prosecutors could take jurisdiction of a case after it is filed in state court or decide to bring additional charges in federal court.
Many attorneys do not practice in federal court. If your case goes federal, it can cost you time and money when you have to find a new attorney. I have more than 17 years of experience handling cases in both courts, including:
- Hobbs Act cases such as robbery and extortion
- Bank robbery
- Public corruption
- Major property theft
- Drug trafficking and distribution
- Money laundering
- Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) crimes
- Crimes involving bribery or kickbacks
- Fraud involving insurance, health care, investments, credit cards or securities
- Forgery, counterfeiting and identity theft
- Internet or cyber crimes such as eBay fraud and hacking
- Other white collar crimes
- Violent crimes, including murder and weapons offenses
- Possession or distribution of child pornography
- Computer and internet related crimes
