Drug Charges At The Federal Level
If you are convicted of a federal drug crime, it’s isn’t a matter of whether you are going to jail, but for how long. Federal prosecutors don’t take on minor drug cases. You could be subject to mandatory minimum prison sentences that would result in spending years in a federal prison.

Conspiracy Charges And The Federal Court System
When the federal government gets involved in a drug case, it tends to cast a wide net. The net it often uses is called “conspiracy charges.” Even minor players in a drug operation can face conspiracy charges. If you played any role in transporting or selling drugs, you could face the same harsh consequences as those at the top of the operation.
Our lawyers are experienced in representing people in the federal court system. The federal government has vast resources it can bring to building and prosecuting your case. Through early involvement and negotiations, our goal is to persuade prosecutors not to charge you with a crime in federal court.
