Federal Defense Attorney in Denver

Seasoned Criminal Defense for All Kinds of Federal Charges

If you are under federal investigation or if you have been indicted by a federal grand jury, the success of your defense will largely depend on your lawyer's experience with the distinctive practices and procedures of U.S. District Court.


The best time to get started your federal defense is before you are indicted. Charges can often be dropped or cases dismissed. Contact us today!


Because federal prosecution generally follows a grand jury indictment, people under investigation for certain federal offenses sometimes get advance notice of the government's interest in them. You might get approached by FBI or DEA agents for an "informal" interview. You might get a subpoena to testify before the grand jury or turn documents over to the U.S. Attorney's Office. Someone you know or work with might appear before a grand jury.

Especially in cases involving charges of fraud or conspiracy, the chance to consult with a lawyer before indictment can be a valuable opportunity to develop your own defense or otherwise work to reduce your exposure to punishment.
