Federal Offenses

Federal cases are inherently complex. Harrison Saunders is equipped to represent your case effectively.

Federal criminal offenses require an attorney experienced in federal prosecutions. These offenses are prosecuted by the U.S. Attorney’s Office and involve law enforcement agencies such as FBI, DEA, ATF, Department of Homeland Security, and the U.S. Postal Inspector. These law enforcement agencies are more thorough in their investigations and have more resources than state and local law enforcement. In addition, federal offenses involve unique complexities such as the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines, statutory sentencing enhancements, and forfeiture.

Many times a federal prosecution will begin by law enforcement identifying those who are “targets” or “subjects” of an investigation. Often an investigation can continue for more than a year before an indictment is returned. If you are contacted by federal law enforcement, you should contact an attorney immediately before deciding whether to speak to law enforcement or not. Lying to a federal agent is a criminal offense, and people are routinely prosecuted for this crime.

Because federal criminal cases are inherently complex, it is imperative that you hire an attorney experienced in navigating a federal case. Harrison Saunders knows the many nuances of the federal criminal justice system and has tried cases in federal court ranging from large drug conspiracies to racketeering to healthcare and wire fraud.
