Challenging Federal Offense Charges
Defending yourself against misdemeanor or felony charges can be complicated if you do not have a legal background. To successfully challenge federal criminal charges, however, requires a skill set that not every criminal defense attorney possesses.
If you have been indicted or charged with a federal offense, you will need to work with an attorney who knows how to navigate the federal court system, understands sentencing guidelines and knows which factors can affect a ruling. It is vital to retain an attorney with an expansive knowledge of this court process because when the opposing party is the federal government, there is little margin for error.
In Memphis, when residents seek out qualified representation for federal criminal matters, they contact me, Vicki M. Carriker. I have practiced law in Tennessee for over 15 years. My firm handles only criminal defense cases. As a result of this concentrated focus, I am well-versed in the current laws and procedures ordering criminal cases on state, federal and appellate level.
Providing Skilled Counsel For A Range Of Complex Offenses
I use my extensive background as a trial lawyer to prepare an aggressive strategy to defend you against these charges:
- Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) violations
- Embezzlement and other white collar federal offenses
- Federal drug offenses such as drug manufacturing or trafficking
Representing clients in federal courts and achieving a favorable result demand deep legal insight because federal prosecutors file charges after months of in-depth investigation. As a result of their findings, your personal or business assets may be seized, limiting your source of income and causing a great deal of emotional distress.
You may be overwhelmed by this situation. However, it is a mistake to hope your problems will clear up on their own and avoid searching for a solution. When you hire my services, I will study evidence submitted by federal agents and examine circumstances that may affect sentencing guidelines.
As your advocate, I will give you an honest assessment of your options, keep you updated on all aspects of your case and identify the most beneficial course of action to pursue.
