Federal Criminal Defense Lawyer in Las Vegas, New Mexico

Federal Criminal Defense

With experience as a federal criminal defense lawyer, I’ve fought drug, gun, illegal re-entry and other charges. Sometimes a simple arrest can turn into a federal offense, depending on the circumstances. When it comes to drugs and guns, most law enforcement officials are already working with federal agencies, so an arrest can automatically become federal. When a federal case is brought, it is by a United States Attorney, as opposed to a state prosecutor or district attorney. Federal offenses usually carry much harsher and more complicated penalties. Individuals can also be charged and found guilty under both jurisdictions. In federal criminal cases especially, a defense attorney is vital to your best interests. I have a wide array of experience in preparing and fighting federal criminal charges and will do the utmost to investigate your case, keep you fully informed and fight for you or your family member.
