Federal Criminal Defense

Did you know that not all criminal defense attorneys are well-versed in federal laws? While many defense attorneys provide counsel against state charges, they may not be as familiar with the federal court systems. That is why it is imperative that if facing a federal charge, your attorney has extensive federal criminal law experience.

At Greenwood Law, our attorneys are very well-versed in federal laws. No matter what type of federal criminal charge you are facing, they can prepare a solid defense on your behalf. Our law firm represents clients in the Winston-Salem, Greensboro, High Point, the Greater Triad Area and throughout North Carolina.

If you are being investigated for a federal crime, it is very important that you say nothing until you have spoken to a lawyer. This cannot be stressed enough.

Serious Federal Crimes And Consequences

More often than not, potential criminal penalties such as jail time and fines are harsher in federal court, giving even more reason for obtaining a seasoned federal criminal defense lawyer.

Greenwood Law provides defense against all types of federal charges, including:

  • Federal white collar crimes
  • Federal drug violations
  • Federal weapons charges
  • Federal sex crimes
  • Federal property/theft-related crimes

Greenwood Law’s federal criminal defense practice is broad and they provide each and every one of their clients with the individual and catered defense they deserve.

Sentencing Advocacy

Justice dealt by the United States Government can be swift and severe. A lot of federal indictments are served only once every single stone is unturned during the investigation. This can sometimes mean a shift of focus. We enter every case looking to hold the Government to its burden of proof. However, sometimes we have to worry more working to make sure the §3553(a) sentencing factors are working more in our client’s favor than against them. In certain cases this has meant a significant difference in the amount of time a client with federal criminal charges will serve. Of course there are no guarantees, but having someone well-versed on these aspects of the law is critical for your future and your well-being.
