Federal Criminal Defense
When charged with a crime, whether the accused is innocent, guilty, or somewhere in between, it is important to be represented by an experienced criminal defense attorney. The government of the United States of America is the most powerful entity in the world and nothing is worse than being the subject of a federal criminal investigation. Likewise, the State of West Virginia has substantial investigative resources and experienced prosecutors. Attorneys at our firm have over forty years of legal experience, have served as former prosecutors both state and federal, and conducted hundreds of criminal cases including arguing appeals before the Supreme Court of Appeals of West Virginia.

“White Collar Crimes” refer to frauds committed by businesses, professionals, and government officials, sometimes inadvertently. White collar crimes include a range of activities considered to be fraud and corruption and are usually charged in federal court. Federal criminal cases are substantially different than cases brought in other courts. The charges are complex, the penalties can be severe, and the government will likely attempt to seize your assets. It is critical to engage an attorney experienced in federal prosecutions immediately if you or your business is a target or under investigation.
