Federal Experience

Our federal experience extends to cases such as child pornography, VICAR, RICO, drug possession, distribution, or importation, and trafficking of guns and firearms. To determine you sentence, the judge will use sentencing guidelines. The guidelines can be complex, and the potential mandatory minimum sentences very severe. Our firm knows how to work the guidelines and sentencing factors in order to decrease the range of calculated points and give you the best possible outcome.
Our firm handles federal cases in Maryland for the Northern and Southern Division, in Baltimore and in Greenbelt, and in the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
