A blog should educate and inform.  That’s the goal with our legal blog section.  We want readers to be informed about important legal topics and events occurring in federal criminal law.  For this reason, we strive to post timely and engaging blogs that will serve to educate, inform and, once in a while, entertain.  Are there topics you’d like to see addressed?  If so, don’t hesitate to contact us and we’ll be happy to address them.  As you peruse our blog articles, we wish you happy reading.

The purpose behind our frequently asked questions, or FAQs, is to provide readers with responses to some of the most common questions we get asked by clients.  Federal criminal law is complex and there are a multitude of complicated legal issues that can be implicated in even an “average” case.  For this reason, we hope to address a lot of those topics in our FAQs that might help a current or future client, or anyone else for that matter that’s wrestling with finding good answers, gain a better understanding of the law and the criminal justice process. 

FAQ Image for Legal Terms

There a lot of terms and jargon in federal criminal law that are simply foreign to most people.  For this reason, we created a section on this website dedicated to providing answers to common legal terms.  Terms that get used with frequency by lawyers, judges and investigators.  Similar to FAQs, this section will provide valuable information for the reader. 


The law is very nuanced. Federal prosecutors have almost unlimited advantages and resources at their disposal.
